The last FNSI for 2015....
Last month I showed this:
It was a teaser of course!! So this month I can show you what I was working on:
Firstly - the two fabrics - green & cream - a mini wall hanging for my Secret Santa present for Sunday Stitchers:
The little wooden bead, button and gold ribbon - parts of my 2015 Angel.
Every year I make a new angel for gifting to family and friends - you can see them all here:
The 2015 model is:
The beige felt - Two sewing kits for some buddies: - here is one of them
Pins - and a number bead - I made some numbered pins - Maureen (still no blog!!!) was going to buy some at the last craft show - until she found out they were about $40.00. These may not be as pretty but they have TLC built in!!
I've had a great day sewing with my bestie so I'm enjoying a FD&NSI. I am back working on my Nature's Journey quilt - today I added the border of pieced squares and the top row of the applique blocks...We both spent a fair bit of time organising what blocks go where...I am not good at "scrappy" - I like a bit of "organised" chaos...but it's sorted now - two small blocks to re do to make it work for me and I can continue on with it.
I am now on leave from work - we have a company shut down period - this year from 16th December until 4th January. We only have a small family get together for Christmas, so this period becomes a "get things ready" exercise for the coming year. I find since I am working 4 days a week - preparation is difficult so by organising things early - I can get some sewing done during the week...especially when TV is full of tennis and other sport.
So a big thankyou to Wendy for hosting and coordinating and present giving for the year. I may not always get a lot done because by Friday night I'm usually a bit tired....!....but often the incentive ("eek - what will I post about if I don't do anything?" problem) keeps me going to get a bit more done.
And wishing you all a very Merry Christmas - stay safe & happy - and see you back in January for an organised productive year!!
