Virtual Retreat

CHOOKYBLUE  is hosting her annual birthday party for her creative space "the Chookshed".  We crazies in blogland usually join in and have a kind of virtual retreat.....taking the opportunity to have a bit of a " stitch in".
I embraced it with a happy heart and played with my new machine...Big Bertha as Mr.R has named her.....very happy with my work....Angel Story is now a complete quilt top....also last months UFO CHALLENGE!
Binding is even sewn together waiting in the wings.
Loved every minute of stitching this quilt!
Whilst I was looking out the Paris Fleamarket fabric for the Angel Story border I found these....
Did you ever recieve one as a gift.....so cute! Going to put them in the "to do" pile.
We have another celebration in our family today. Our youngest Grandson is having a birthday.......
A bowling party was the go.....Happy birthday Coops....lots of hugs and love xxx
Thank you all for your lovely comments....appreciate each and every one. As you can tell Blogger has still not sorted our issues out re comments as yet. Please bare with me.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
