FNSI - May and Sunday Stitchers


I am a bit late posting this - life has been crazy hectic and the weeknd was full on.

However, despite needing to do groceries on Friday night I as able to get some sewing done - I finished off the binding for this quilt.

The pattern is Vintage Christmas Blessings by Canning Town Patchwork.
And a big thanks to Wendy or gracious hostess.

This is my Project #7 for Sunday Stitchers 2018 Challenge.  I will add some more quilting later but for now it is (almost) finished.

I also had to finish off a decorated coathanger for a swap at Sunday Stitchers.

This is the one I made

Sunday Stitchers

The Tuesday Girls had decided that they would like to put on a special Mothers Day Morning Tea & part of that was the coat hanger swap.

The table looked stunning - hand made decorations, flowers, sandwiches, chocolates, baby pikelets and muffins.  We had been asked to bring along a pretty teacup, saucer & plate to add to the ambience.

 I received a lovely coat hanger from Lynda

A wonderful time was had by all - thanks to you all - especially that one who will remain nameless who is cracking the whip a bit so that we don't get boring . . . .

Thankfully, the next UFO Number for the Challenge is #5 - finally a quick and easy finish.  Whilst I am very motivated to achieve the goal for the month I am finding that some other projects are getting overlooked - hopefully not this month!
