FNSI take 2.

bahh hahha Win for Jeanette no win for technology. :)( found a non damaged usb port at the back of the desktop). Now to the FNSI report that was rudely interupted by technology not co-operating.

First on my list yesterday was to put together the first part of my latest block(no 3 for Sunday Stitchers) for Gossip In The Garden. I'm working on the pieced blocks that go with this row today.
Not a good shot i know but it's such a long block & no matter which way i tried there were problems getting a decent shot.
Next i added borders to this cute Easter stitchery available on Bronwyns blog.
Finally the pandas are a finished top. I completed the last bamboo row at our Sunday Stitchers meeting last Sunday.
The last night i worked on some more cross stitch from the Travelling Cross Stitch. Stay tuned as i'll be having a give away soon for it.

Happy Stitching,




Very Cranky.

This was supposed to be a FNSI post but no the technology doesn't want to work. The USB ports on the desktop malfunctioned the other day so whilst i wait for my techie(aka my son) to fix them or do a computer upgrade i figured i'd use the tablet. But guess what it didn't want to charge. Hoping it was just the cable i bought a new one & yes it was just cable problems. Finally i thought taking photo's of all my projects yesterday i might be able to blog with photos. But no the damn tablet doesn't want to load the photo's. So i'm one very cranky person today.

Happy Stitching,

After a harrowing day yesterday spent in Toowoomba at a friends son's funeral it was so nice to come home to a parcel in the mail. Upon opening i discovered this oh so gorgeous sewing roll. This is the first swap in our online sewing group Let's Stitch Together.
As i was investigating things i discovered a teabag in the front pocket. :)
& surprises inside as well. Thankyou so much Kerrie. I love the sewing roll so much.

 I had planned to take part in FNWF's but i was so tired & my eyes were sore from crying so i have nothing to show for last night.

Happy Stitching,

What's been under my needle ?

I've been working on Anni Downs Gossip In The Garden as a sew along with friends.
This is the block chosen for last month. I'll find out in a couple of weeks our next block.
Finally finished block 3 of Gail Pans A Merry Christmas Garden bom last night. Just in time as block 4 will be arriving in a week or so.
My next row in the Goodnight Irene sew a long.
My quilt top so far. After sewing Irene yesterday i decide to sew the finished panda blocks together to see what it looked like as the fiddly border has been bugging me. I've not been happy with them & that is one reason the last block has been sitting unfinished for weeks
After sewing them together i'm quite happy now & will finish that last block today & get the quilt ready for when i've finished appliqueing the bamboo borders.

Happy Stitching,

Last finish for March

I started to stitch this topper last year but like all things it was pushed aside. It finally made its way back to being a priority to finish. I did leave something off - the satin stitched ribbons, mine are just back stitched. As lovely as it looked on Leannes i knew i'd never finish if i did the satin stitch.

Happy Stitching,
