Decision Made

After umming and ahhing I have decide that I will once again this year join in over at SO SCRAPPY for
I love the whole concept of this.....using what you already have to create something new! All those bits of unloved or out of favour fabrics we all have in our stash.
So after a refreshing cool swim this morning, some work on a new art can read about that HERE I set about doing some prep work for what I have chosen for this challenge.
So what did I choose? Little circles!
January is BLUE. My aim is to do 4 in each months colour. Using a 61/2 inch background block of all my creams, tans and beige scrap pieces.
So my little circles are ready to be basted down ready to applique in place.
My UFO challenge for January is coming along nicely......
I shall show you when I get done. You would think a Christmas project would be the last thing you would want to do but I am enjoying it.
 Ok....Back to my circle basting.

I hope wherever you are the weather is not affecting you too much. It has been a bit extreme in both hemispheres of late.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
