A Little Mini

I have a finish on my little Natalie Bird stitchery.......I teamed it with some lovely Paris Fleamarket fabric and a little dark rose peeper.
I am pleased at how it looks on my smaller mini quilt hanger, which I have had for sooooo long waiting for the right one.
 I thankfully had the birdie button for the top....
I added an extra little butterfly stitchery where the lost button belonged.....
I decided that a big tidy up was necessary in my little sewing cave of mysteries.....wish I  had embraced my inner sloth as I found this.....

Another poor forgotten project! Arrrgggh!  Tidying always leads to trouble for me lol! I am leaving it out overnight maybe the quiltmakers elves will take pity on me and finish it for me **sigh! If not I can't abandon it.....the fabrics are too lovely!
I would like to say after my labours all day, plus charity bags and rubbish bin empties that it's all looking smicko! But my tiny room still seems to be bursting!
Anyway SOME things have moved on.......tick! Looking at the positives.
Sewing time is....back to 1797.
Our pink bottlebrush has decided to put on a wonderful show and cover herself with beautiful brushes.....

The colour is gorgeous and the golden tips....stunning!
Lovely to see something so pretty and cheery.
Ok off to enjoy my evening cup of tea and get back to 1797.
Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx
