Good morning folks. I wasn't sure which blog to post this on as it's relevant to art and stitching. On Friday I did my roster at the Logan Art Gallery for the Queensland Wildlife Artist's Society Exhibition. I did a bit of demonstrating.
And whilst there had some lovely visitors.
You may know this lady...
Chooky from CHOOKYBLUE popped in to see me and the very nice to spend some time having a good old natter. Also extremely lovely of Chooky to come out of her way to come visit on her Commonwealth games journey.
My Grandies came also to check out what I was must have been riveting going by the concentration on their faces lol! Thanks family xx

Chooky recently organised and hosted with a friend a retreat at Barrandine in NSW. The lovely SUSAN from Susan's Sewing Space arranged for the retreaters and a couple of extras to make a block each from this pattern.
As a surprise for Chooky....she told me she was thrilled to bits with all the blocks and gave me permission to share them and my block. So here we are....some of you will have already seen them.
All the blocks gathered....
And my little block who I think was called Helga....
Very cute chooks! And perfect for a lady who loved this pattern and loves chooks!
I have finished 2 more Angel Story blocks.
TILLIE The Tealady.
And CHARLOTTE The Shopper.
Sarah the Quilter is ready for stitchery and the last block is all cut out....nearly there!
I received some lovely mail too.....I had ordered a new book and it had sold I was not really....for it to come back into stock.....yay!
Well that's what I have been up to.
Enjoy your day.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
