FNSI

Last night i joined Wendy & lots of lovely other ladies for FNSI. Well yesterday & last night actually. I'd spent the 2 previous evenings making a block up for the Bonnie & Camille sampler swap but i wasn't happy with it. When laid out it looked great but sewn together...no. So some reverse sewing was in order. Oh who am i kidding. A lot of reverse sewing meaning i took nearly all the block apart.
I'm a lot happier now with the layout. You can actually see that they are supposed to be cat's heads. Next i was desperately playing catch up with a Christmas sew along. I did catch up but upon getting up this morning found another block posted. :~
Off to the sewing room now to make the block & a bag. Once that is done i hope to get some other BOM's caught up, started on ect. Oh & a table runner i was supposed to make in a sew along a few weeks back but that plan also went out the window.

Happy Stitching,

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......

this parcel is off to........ ? in Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap.
these are off to Sharon in Cheryll's Santa Sack Swap Sharon & i decided on bags rather than a sack or stocking so the bag is wrapped as well.
These are off to..........from an online group i'm in.
This parcel is for my SS at our Sunday Stitchers.

I forgot to show you Santa who arrived last week from Keryn
but he's been a little busy since he got here So i had to nab him when i could for a photo. :)

Happy Stitching,

My week

I can't show much of my sewing as it's all secret. I'm running behind on my BOM's i've been working on which is frustrating as i'm trying very hard to keep up. I've managed to get this one done though,
the 6" sampler. Yesterday i made the 2 block for November for the Bonnie & Camille Sampler BOM
Hopefully next week i'll catch up on my BOM's & start another BOM. A 6" sampler BOW run by Rose of Threadbare Creations. I'm way behind as week 4 has just been posted.

Signing up for FNWF last week i discovered i was the winner of October's sew in. Lovely Cheryll sent me these beautiful goodies.
Thankyou so much Cheryll. Love my goodies.

Recently i asked Joanne, my gorgeous friend in England, if she would make me some hare earrings with purple beads. 24 hours later they were on their way to me along with a surprise. You see the earrings are a birthday present to myself & the surprise was from Joanne for my birthday.
My lovely surprise was a matching hare pendant. Thanks Joanne love them.

I joined another BOM this week. It's a Quilty Fun BOM for Xmas. I wasn't going to but after seeing all the lovely photo's of blocks popping up i succumbed. :)
The first 5 blocks. I was way behind & sent Wednesday afternoon/night catching up to everyone. That's it from me for now. I'll be back tomorrow with a birthday block up date.

Happy stitching
