Well it is for Brissy town anyway! We even had to light the fire last night....stop laughing friends down south lol! My favourite cup has been getting a work out...lots of warm Lemon and Ginger teas and the odd coffee....
For some reason this post is a wee bit long....I know...surprising for me lol!
Just when I thought it was safe to go digging around in my sewing room....eek! Another UFO of long standing attacked me recently! A lovely design from Bella Embroidery. I have loved Crinoline Ladies since girlhood....did you ever receive one of those gorgeous Crinoline cards for your birthday? I loved them! I think perhaps that was in my mind when I bought this pattern....so I had already started one block and being sooooo efficient have traced out all 12 blocks....yes folks 12 blocks!
Ok it's JULY and that means another colour in Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at SO SCRAPPY This months colour is BLUE......fabrics sorted....and it's a "butterfly " applique month too. For some reason the butterfly fabric looks apricot but it is a pretty soft pink.
So I moved on to some border choices for Country at Heart Alphabet quilt. As I am determined it should be in my stash....this is the only half decent choice!
Just to bore you rigid a little more lol!
I treated myself to some new art paper....boo boo! Wrong sort. Didn't realise so transferred my new sketch on to it and soon discovered coloured pencils were very hard going on this textured paper....sshiish! Anyway I had invested quite a bit of time on the piece and perservered.
It took so many layers and hard burnishing to get anywhere with it. Finally though I got something half decent and the texture in the background looks good. I left it untouched to highlight the troublesome texture.
Lastly I am posting these Violets for my dear friend Gaye who is gravely ill....hoping the love in the gesture finds its way to her heart and the prayers help her get well.
Stay warm Aussie friends and enjoy your Sunday.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
