FNWF

I started my sewing day early. First i worked on the pincushion which is March's project for the stitch a long.
No whip cracking for me from Chookyblue this month. :) Next i added the binding to "peppermint stitches" by Rosalie. I'd spent Wednesday adding the borders then hand quilting in the white triangles the next 2 nights.
  I had 2 stichery BOM's from 2011 sitting around. Last month i chose border fabrics with every intention of working on them. I was determined that not another month or year would go by without finishing them. I started off with Michelle's BOM.
Then the 2nd BOM which is by Paula who no longer blogs.
After i put together the 2nd BOM i went back & started quilting Michelle's. I machine quilted around the blocks & last night i started hand quilting hearts around the border fabric. Pop on over to visit Cheryll, our lovely host, to see who else joined in FNWF.

Happy Stitching,
