My Treasures From Sunday

I promised I would share the treasures from Sundays "Bring and Buy".
Several lovely see I was busy designing when all these lovely things came I am enjoying stitching them now lol! Also a very nice cutlery roll and mat....perfect for taking to stitching and workshops to avoid plastic it!
I seem to have come home with lots of Sandi's gorgeousness.
Honey straight from the hive from her neighbour in the cutest jar.
Dear little needlebook and pincushion.
And this gorgeous little Easter runner that Sandi wasn't happy with.....I adore it!
De gave us our March UFO CHALLENGE number which is...
My number 9 is to work on Angel Story. So that will be very nice.
On Sunday I worked on a little Easter mini quilt for my 12 inch hanger I drew up.
You see I have 2 of these cute hangers but don't have much to put on hopefully I can remedy that and make a couple....starting with one for Easter.
Lastly I wanted to share a family heirloom of sorts. I meant to share when I posted all my orchids.....this teeny tiny unremarkable native orchid belonged to my Great Grandmother and was rescued after her death by my Grandmother who passed it to my Mum who passed it to me......whilst technically its like us new generations of the same family I love having it. No flowers at present but hopefully when it flowers I can grab a snap....the flowers are the tiniest little star orchids. So cute!
Those leaves are no bigger than my thumb nail!
Ok my bed is calling me.....
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
