Slow Stitching

Seems to be my way of being of late....I am really enjoying focusing on my little girls
Hearts I Spy and my Clamshells.
The piles of cute hearts are growing...
Some the same...
Some different and individual....
And I am sure that Batman never expected to be in a 'love heart' as they are referred to lol!
All this wonderful variety is thanks to very generous friends, sharing.....making for a much more exciting quilt for each little girl.
It occurred to me whilst working on my Clamshells, the incredible amount of choice of beautiful fabrics available to us today. I am working in only one style....vintage/reproductions and the variation in amazing. This variety that keeps me so interested is also due to the generosity of lovely friends....this quilt is definitely a FRIENDSHIP quilt.
As you can see the length is growing! 30 rows under the needle.

Ok I am off to enjoy a coffee with my new magazine. Which you can read about on my Art Blog **Here**
Have a lovely weekend.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xx
