FNSI time again - the months seem to fly by and when you have these regular meetings it just highlights how quickly a month can go.
Thanks to Wendy again for keeping us all going.


Tonight I worked on my Gail Pan "Seasons" stitcheries....so many lazy daisy flowers (grrrrr) - I was hating them - but I found a lovely variegated perle 8 thread DMC 4504 which I am using for those annoying flowers. I have them as good as I can get them now.



I also did a bit of plain crochet for a block for the blankets for "Knitting for Brisbane's Needy" group.


I found another great quote from Summer on Blossom Street -#6 in the Debbie Macomber Blossom Street series books.

"Watching a complex stitch pattern grow as I knit 
silences the voice in my head that tells me to sweep the floor.  
I imagine dust bunnies are knitting themselves together under my chair".

- Substitute "sewing" for knitting for sewing and she is spot on!!

Hope all my cyber sewing buddies had a fun & productive night - I will try to visit some of you over the coming week.

See you next month.
