FNSI - February

I was able to get an early start on my FNSI projects - the advantage of working from home!!!

I started with cutting some pastel balis

Then it was time for dinner and Better Homes & Gardens - followed by the Grand Finale of Great British Bake Off that we had recorded...(seen it before but can't always remember who wins...LOL) so I stitched this:


The stitching is now finished.  I am not sure when I started this - I can find a post from June 2020 - so perhaps then.  I bought it in May 2018.  (Not too bad going).


I will add it to some other fabric - possibly a teal coloured linen type...who knows?

Then I moved onto a cross-stitch project - picked a bit that requires very little concentration!


and finally back at the machine and managed to get all these little bits together that I cut earlier in the night (mostly 1.5" cut squares).

I am loving the dual facebook/blog idea.  Facebook is a lot more interactive and we can comment as people post pictures...but I like my blog for long-time reminders of what I did when, so not giving that up.

BIG thanks to Wendy for organising us...and a bonus from now on - she has a sponsor so there is a "lucky door prize" each month.  Go Wendy!!!!!!!
(Not that we do this for the prizes, we do it because its our passion - sanity saver - keep out of jail project...etc)

Take Care everyone
Stay Safe

Your stitchery is so pretty and a big well done on the finish.

I'm the same - love that we can interact on FB, but still love my blog so I can look back on it and remember when I made (or started) things.

YOu certainly have achieved lots, I have to admire all that hand stitching, even though I don't do it myself. The needle, thread and my fingers just don't bond at all.

Wow you got lots done!! Love how your sashiko turned out! xx

A very productive FNSI. I like the Facebook option for real time sharing too but it was quite distracting sneaking the odd peek at Facebook during the working day and seeing what those of you who were several hours ahead of the UK were getting up to! (I probably should have been more focused on my work!)

A little bit of this and a little bit of that. What a fun FNSI! Great job!!
