MY SOUL IS FED BY NEEDLE AND THREAD

September FNSI

Seems so long since I have joined in with my fellow bloggers for a good old virtual sew in over at WENDY'S at Sugarlane Quilts What to work on?
Another Gardener's Journal block came under the needle for finishing.
Pulling the Weeds....love this block! As I didn't have a lot to do on it to finish it I began the next block in the case and then went back to work on my Clamshells.
Row 12 is now attached.....these are a tad addictive I must say!
Only 30 more rows to go lol! I had a very nice time and my Broncos are still in the game for the footy finals so a good night all round.
I am looking forward to visting the other Friday Nighters to see what they got up to.
Thanks Wendy for being our charming hostess.
Today I plan to drag out the pencils....they are a bit rusty. Even though I took my sketchbook, not a lot was achieved. I have always wished that I was that quick sketch person but I am not! So I appreciate what I have been given.
Anyway I had been working on a Galah portrait before I went away. It is from a photo I took on our trip last year. I love these pretty birds. We take them for granted here and underestimate their beauty. When you see a flock of them in outback Australia they are so beautiful to watch.
So a practicing I shall go......speaking of wildlife, Hubby just called me downstairs. It appears that a little wallaby has gotten lost from the nature park near us. Sheltering in our garden.....waiting for the Wildlife people.

Poor thing is very frightened.
Home is not too far away but usually they don't venture out of the park with all the dogs around.....the whole street is watching it trying to keep it safe.
Certainly didn't expect that this morning in the very heart of suburbia!
Enjoy your weekend folks.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  18. I LOVE THE CLAM SHELLS!! You are so right, they are very addictive! I worked on mine also for FNSI. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy doing them so my project will only be a wall hanging. I have plans for another already! Hope the baby wallaby had a safe return!
