FNSI - July

I did do some sewing stuff on Friday night - bits & pieces...mostly not picture worthy.

I did finish off a new scrap bucket and needle folder - nothing special - but it's now stashed away in the matching zippy pouch.


I will be on retreat soon (did I hear someone say 20 sleeps????) and I plan to do a lot of machine blanket stitch applique - so I thought I'd prepare some samples of the different stitches and test the threads - deciding if I need stabilizer as well (I've decided no on that issue).

So, nothing much to show...a few secret bits & pieces happening......

Thanks Wendy as always....great to have the incentive to sew and then to blog.
