FNSI

Friday started bright & early. It was RETREAT time. :) I wish i could say it was heads down, bum up from the get go but setting up, greetings of the other 14 lovely ladies & morning tea had to be dealt with first. Finally it was time to sew. First up was my little banner
Sorry for bad photo. I was using my tablet & have transferred the photo's from there. It was supposed to be completely finished but someone who shall remain nameless forgot to bring me the bias binding for the top. Next up was this cube
 
 I had fun & games with this. Cut it all out equally & followed instructions carefully only to discover
the last panel wasn't going to go in no matter how much fudging i tried. Unpicked it a little bit & rearranged panels, same deal. As tempting as it was to throw it aside i completely unpicked it & rearranged the panels again & 3rd time lucky. I didn't take stuffing with me so that is a job for this week. Last thing i worked on on Friday was this
I only managed to get the embroidery pieces sewn to the background & 1 started with the hexie backing. Pop over & visit our lovely hostess Wendy to sew what the other ladies who joined in worked on.

Happy Stitching,
