Marvellous March

March has come with some cooler weather and showers too.....also DD's birthday.
I love this know you're getting older when all your candles set the smoke alarm off lol!
I also had a lovely friend FIONA. It was wet, wet wet. But chatting and stitching made us care less.....
Fiona bought her beautiful version of my Wings design that she and some other friends and I  have been playing with.....Fiona has her top finished....I love it!

It is always hard to imagine what is in your head and how it will look in pleased and just love Fionas colourways and fabrics.
This inspired me...and now that I can get back into my cupboard in my sewing room, I worked on one of my Wings blocks and got it finished....thanks for the inspiration my friend.

Another Flowerville block is finished also.
I am mostly moved back into my sewing room but lots of tidying and putting away needs still to happen....but will have to wait as I stupidly hurt my back doing practically nothing at all.....anyway it is improving which I am very glad about.
Some little areas sorted and treasures in place....

I am pleased that lots have gone to new homes and that I have been able to maintain my "Frugal McDougal" ideology and use mostly what I have to create a much nicer and more workable space....ohh and THAT awful pink wallpaper is GONE!!!
Showers are still about today so I think a quiet day for me.
Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx
