Not A Lot To Share

Well I may not have a lot of photographic evidence of progress but I  have been very consistent in doing lots of this.....
And also lots of this...
I have been on a mission to only pay attention to my Clamshells and it has pleased me no end! I now have a piece measuring 60 inches x 60 inches. I feel that I may just get there.  As I want it to be rectangular still more rows to go.
We have also had a little furry house guest......our Son's Staffy.....Diesel. Our family are great lovers of Staffies.....they are so loyal but crazy little dogs.....they take a while to get into your heart but once they do you are ruined forever! Lol!
Diesel fretted to be left by his family and looked so sad!
But he soon made our place his lol! Never got the concept of "get down"....
Soon every cuppa was under close scrutiny lol! Is that a bikkie?
Crumbs maybe?? Pleeease?
It has gotten a bit cool in old Brisbane town over the weekend and I  made good use of my favourite snuggle quilt....
That is after the house guest was evicted from my chair lol!
Still it was very nice to have some Staffy Love for a little while.
So that is about it from me........the Clamshell journey continues.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx


  1. Your clammies are looking beautiful and sometimes focusing on one project seems to be more relaxing especially when you see it growing. Looks like your furry friend was forever hopeful for crumbs lol. You reckon it is cold there? Itwas is freezing here andvwe have had relentless rain for about 48 hours with strong winds but no rain yet today. Our ducted heating has been working hard to reachi 23 degrees.

  2. So who is master and who slave???? It's freezing down here so not feeling too sorry for you Queenslanders. Well only a bit.Love the clamshells, must get borders on mine.
