Sewing Snippets

I finished my last stitchery the day the 7/8th hexie templates arrived. I'd just started the border when the postie artived.

Then off to choose fabrics for the hexies.
This doesn't show that they are a deep red. I still have to make the centres of the four flowers.

 Last night was prep night for month 5 of Ice Cream Soda.

Happy Stitching,

Back to stitching

During the week i was inspired by a friend making the same pattern to get mine out & work towards finishing it. So the EPP has been put aside for a while whilst i stitch these.
This one was half done when i put them away. Only 2 to go when I'd done this one.
Finished this one last night. I'm hoping to get the last one done before my 7/8th hexie templates arrive. I doubt it as ths shop i got them from is very good about posting straight away.

Happy stitching,

I joined in FNSI yesterday but I just didn't feel up to sewing at the machine. Which is sad as i was planning on catching up with my Christmas sew along blocks. I was hoping to sew them today but it looks like a house rearrange as i've a visitor coming i need to make room for.

I did work on Mischief last night.
I added all the white & black pieces in this photo along with the 2 purple blocks.
Here is a full length shot of the first row. It's nearly finished. I do hope the next 9 rows go on quick.

Pop over to lovely hostess Wendy's blog to find the links to see who joined in FNSI last night & what projects they worked on.

Happy Sewing,

The piecing of Mischief.

Since it was a cold rainy day & i still didn't feel up to using the machine after 4 days of being ill i put Pearl Harbor on Netflix & started piecing together Mischief.
This is the result after 3 hours. I think I'm going to be here a long time doing 10 by 10 rows.
I have half a row done now & it's time for bed.

Happy Stitching,

Quilty cats

After being ill for 3 days i was ready for some crafting. I prepped more coffins
 then i started to add more to my top but i had a very determined cat who wanted a lap.
She didn't care about the container on my lap she just hopped right on in & made herself comfy.
Happy Stitching,
