FNSI - January

Thanks Wendy - and hi everyone whos is visiting via FNSI !!!

I had plans to get more done - but DD2 dropped in for a visit, so dinner was late and sewing was late!!

I'm a bit restricted in what I can do, due to my operation on my right index finger....but I'm doing hat I can.
I've drawn diagonal on these fabric squares ready to strip piece - I'm joining in with a String Quiltalong so trying to get prepared.


You really have to look - but there is a line across that block.

I put side borders on a quilt that my KQ Girls group have put together to give to a charity, (no picture yet - it needs an iron) and I joined sets of two of these hexie flowers ready to be made into 12" blocks.  


These will be teamed with some foundation paper hearts and 4 12" crazy patch hearts.
During 2018, we had a series of mini-tutorials - where whoever had done a technique shared their skills with anyone else who was interested.  We used pink and white fabrics - with some green.
Some more photos later on.


So, not so much done...but any progress is good.

Many thanks to Wendy for continuing FNSI into 2019.  I've said it many times before - but it's great motivation to sew and also to post on my blog - which in turn becomes a great reference point for when I wonder..."when did I start this???"

FNWF - January

Happy New Year everyone - another great start to our sewing year.

I am on Annual Leave so have been able to get in some sewing time - so I was certainly able to have a FridayWF and I shared the day with my sewing buddy Maureen.

We pinned a quilt together, chatted, planned and I did a bit of stitching.

On Friday night I sewed buttons onto this small wall hanging, 


 and added sparkles (which were gifted to me by Helen) to my Quilt Diva:


and I also sewed on some of the doo-dads I have collected over the year - still some to go.
I'll add a new picture when they are all done.

Many thanks, as always, to Cheryll for continuing FNWF into 2019.  I've said it many times before - but it's great motivation to sew and also to post on my blog - which in turn becomes a great reference point for when I wonder..."when did I start this???"
