FNSI - June

Its wonderful to know so many others are sewing along - it certainly keeps me motivated.

First up I stitched a bit - not much, so no picture...then I moved back to the North Pole to work on Santa and his sleigh and reindeers.

The reindeers are not in position yet and I need some reins and the "doo dad" that keeps the reindeer attached to the sleigh - you can tell I'm a city slicker can't you?? or maybe my brain is fuddled (it is late)....DH who did at least spend some of his youth on a farm tells me it is called the "Shaft" - ..tonights job was putting Santa & sleigh together...a tad fiddly - I have no idea how you could hand applique such tiny bits...I know some could ...not me though.

Thanks Wendy for being the hostess with the mostest and I'll do my best to come and visit other party goers over the weekend.
