FNSI

Last night i joined Wendy & lots of lovely other ladies for FNSI. Well yesterday & last night actually. I'd spent the 2 previous evenings making a block up for the Bonnie & Camille sampler swap but i wasn't happy with it. When laid out it looked great but sewn together...no. So some reverse sewing was in order. Oh who am i kidding. A lot of reverse sewing meaning i took nearly all the block apart.
I'm a lot happier now with the layout. You can actually see that they are supposed to be cat's heads. Next i was desperately playing catch up with a Christmas sew along. I did catch up but upon getting up this morning found another block posted. :~
Off to the sewing room now to make the block & a bag. Once that is done i hope to get some other BOM's caught up, started on ect. Oh & a table runner i was supposed to make in a sew along a few weeks back but that plan also went out the window.

Happy Stitching,

you have to be happy with your block so unsewing isn't a chore if it gets you the finished block you want, it looks great.
Love your sew along blocks too, pretty fabrics!

Nice that you participated in FNSI! I didn't know it was still going on. Good motivation isn't it? You're getting a lot of nice sewing (and unsewing!) done.

Great blocks.
It always hurts to reverse sew but the results are usually worth it.
