Swan Day

Swan Days.....when it appears we glide along effortlessly on the surface but underneath we are paddling like a crazy! That's me lately!
Lots of sewing happening but most "secret squirrel "stuff.....
Lots of prep work too.....
June choices for Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. TEAL/TURQUOISE.
Choosing scrappy creams for backgrounds.
In the evenings I am hand quilting but I am being very mindful of my still very dodgy shoulder, so try not to overdo it.
This allows for hand stitching......Hexies for Brinton Hall to be exact.
Blocks are cut for the 16 hexies and 4 stars I need for the next border.
I feel happy that I am moving forward again on this project.
I have found rest and enjoyment in equal measures in my art journal of late which you can see HERE on my ART BLOG
Once again thank you all for your lovely comments on my previous post.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  6. Beautiful projects Michelle... I love your term of Swan Day... We all experience ups & downs of getting to work on our projects.

  7. I hope the paddling like crazy bit isn't too stressful Michelle. You have beautiful projects to calm you down and hopefully keep you centre. Nice to see Brinton Hall and hexies appear again.

  8. Look after that shoulder Michelle. Lovely quilt and quilting by Fiona from last post.
