FNSI and Chooky

FNSI

Once again I gathered with cyber friends to sew...
Earlier in the week I realised that I had a sewing day on Thursday and another one on Sunday - oops - no hand sewing project ready to go???? - so what is a girl to do?- start a new project of course!!

This is Rosalie Quinlan's "Little Patchwork Village" and I have been wanting to make this one for a while, so I found some background and pulled out the Cottage Garden Threads. (Breaking the norm here - I would always pick the fabrics then the thread...oh well - deal with that problem later on)
DD2 was there when I was looking at the threads - so I suggested she select one - which she did - at the same time saying - "Mum - what are we going to do with all this when you are gone???"  LOL - maybe I need to write out some instructions!
So, here is my block - 
I only sewed a little on Thursday and not a lot on Friday night - but at least I'm ready for Sunday now....and a few future FNWF. FNSI and Sundays as well.
(Night time photos - never the best.)

Thanks as always to Wendy for being the hostess - 
here is the link to go visiting the other cyber ladies.

Chooky came to BRISVEGAS

Chooky was visiting Brisbane on Saturday - so a great excuse for a blog and friends get together.
I caught Chooky:

but I didn't get a group shot - so I have copied one from the dark side of facebook....(I will thank Michelle tomorrow.

We had a fun, perhaps a little noisy, time....great to catch up with Chooky and Anita who I only see occasionally.

  1. It is so exciting when a new project is getting started. New threads, new colours, new fun. My kids haven't yet asked me what they should do with everything when I'm gone. I guess I should think about that. :)

  10. Of course I had to check out the design of your project and it looks sweet. Can't wait until the next update of FNSI to see how you're progressing. Maybe you'll have chosen a few fabrics to compliment your stitching by then! Haha!

  20. Sitting here on a Sunday morning, trolling through all the lovely comments and, not being one to feel left out, I think I need ANOTHER project, just so I don't get bored...as if....it was great catching up with Chooky and some new friends too. Thanks Susan for letting me be an honorary blogger without a blog. I am a Blogger Groupie or the Blogger Support team. Hugs

  21. Ooh I'm stitching those blocks at the moment but mine are in a variegated red/pink.
    It's always the best kind of day when spent with like minded friends!
