My Sewing Week

I finished off my Christmas stitchery. Breathed a big sigh of relief when the last stitch went into the dreaded satin stitch.
Needs an ironing. lol. :) Then i needed to find a project to work on as i had none prepared or really fancied anything that might still need to be finished. I found this little cross stitch up
Forgot to press it before gluing it into the card. :(. That is what being exhausted does to you. The brain doesn't want to work. Next i found a Christmas kit i purchased years ago.
Finished these little cuties last night. Now to find another project to work on.

Happy Sewing,

Friday Night with Friends October

I was hoping to work on the borders for the hexie quilt but i had a trip to the orthodontist with my daughter. By the time i got home i didn't feel like sewing. I did however pick up my embroidery last night.
I finished the vine on the top right corner & started the satin stitch. I really hate satin stitch but love the look of it. There is still quite a bit of satin stitch to do.

Pop over to visit our lovely hostess Cheryll to find the links to see what projects were worked on last night.

Whilst i was waiting to get into the patchwork shop to buy the border fabric for the hexie quilt i started this little stitchery.
Love this cute Christmas stitchery. It's from Fig 'n' Berry Creations. The thread i'm using is Hugs 'n' Kisses by Cottage Garden Threads.

I picked up the border fabric during the week. Now to summon the enthusiasm to sew it on. :)

Happy Stitching,

FNwF September

I have been working all week on the hexie quilt & i'm getting bored but i want it finished. For the sew in last night i added the last 4 or 5 hexies on row 13. I have to stop now because i need to embroider the last 5 hexies i ended up without due to me miscounting somehow.

Pop over to our lovely hostess Wendy to find the links for what projects were worked on by the other 20 ladies who joined in last night.

Happy Stitching,
