FNSI September

I cannot believe that September is more than half way through! But it also was time for our cyber get together, hosted by WENDY at Sugarlane Quilts.
I was was very lucky to have an all day Friday Sew In because my friend FIONA from BubzRugz came for a visit. Fiona bought some quilts back to me after working her magic....but I am going to get the bindings on first before I thrilled with them!
It was a lovely day and we managed amongst all the chatting and laughter to do some all good things the day went way to fast! I worked on my next Wings block and got it finished by bedtime.

I finished this one last week....
And managed another Postcard.....I am very behind where I want to be so without any stress I am trying to keep momentum going with them.
The other activity I have been indulging in is a binge-fest on one of my favourite authors. I found several in second hand book shops on my holiday and it has just rolled on from there.....ahh lovely!
Last post I mentioned my hopeful anticipation of a couple of Egrets for future drawing projects from my Mister's camera learning experiences.....
Happy scribbler! Hoping to use these for inspiration.....

Happy weekend folks.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
