FNSI & things

I had planned to get lots of things done for FNSI but unfortunately things didn't pan out. All i did was trace this stitchery out & start it.
I don't normally use a hoop but a fellow blogger mentioned the one she uses & as my osteo is causing me some issues i thought i'd try this hoop out to see if it helps me any. Its just 4 pieces of rounded plastic clipped together & then 4 pieces of curved half pieces of plastic over these to hold your fabric.

Last Wednesday i finished this bag
It's made from Papillon charm squares. On Friday another parcel arrived from Michelle. Always so nicely wrapped.
Here's Bella inspecting the parcel in case it's anything for her
Silly cat it's nothing for you. It's all for me.

Felt, threads & hanger for Michelle's  Folk Art Christmas Tree, candy & extra felt. Thanks Michelle & the Fuzzies.

Bella sure has grown since we got her & is still not her full size yet. :)
Sleepy Kitty.

Happy Stitching,

That stitchery is so pretty, and I LOVE that bag, so soft and feminine! Good job. Can't wait to see Shell's pattern done, you make things so fast, girl!

Your stitchery basket is going to be beautiful! Sometimes it takes longer to get prepared, doesn't it! I'll be watching to see your work on it. Great job for FNSI!

The tracing is often the tiresome part of an embroidery project so now it's done, you're all set! Bella is certainly a beautiful cat,just like her name :-)

Youv'e made a gorgeous bag and I hope that your new hoop makes things a lot easier for you too. The design you drew up is beautiful too.

The square hoop looks excellent. With the round ones I often have to reposition to get to the corners of a stitchery.
Lovely bag and enjoy your goodies.

The stitchery is going to be so lovely. And those frames are great, I have a rectangle one- so easy to clip and adjust. I hope it helps you too. The bag is so soft and pretty.

Popping in via FNSI - that's a very pretty stichery, I know the feeling of not getting as much as you planned done

Bella is just so precious. I love her markings and the last photo makes me smile so big to look at her smile as she sleeps. Such a sweetie she is.
Glad you like your goodies. Hugs to you my dear Aussie friend.
