....ohh and pencils and paper

Saturday, April 11, 2020


I joined CHERYLL from GONE STITCHIN and my other blogging friends for a Good Friday stitching evening. I decided to work on the stitcheries from LOVE AND HUGS FROM AUSTRALIA.
I had two little bits of finishing to do first.....
I forgot the running stitch on Natalie Bird's remedied that.

Then there was a teeny bit of stitching left and two hearts to applique on Libby Richardson's gorgeous bears block...
After these little tweaks....which took longer than I thought they would, I settled down to begin the Gail Pan block....
Looking forward to seeing what you all got up to last night.
I wasn't going to put my little Easter things out this year but I received a beautiful handmade Easter card from my eldest Granddaughter so it seemed a perfect reason to go ahead.
The card.....
My Easter things have been with me for a very long time. I usually try and add a little something each year but not this year....

I am glad I made the adds a bit of joy to the staying at home thing.
I wish you and your loved ones a safe, healthy and happy Easter.

Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx
