What i did on FNSI

Thankyou Wendy for not only hosting us last night but throughout the year. Do pop over & visit Wendy to see what the other lovelies who joined last night got up to. My day started out with a visit to Spotlight. Only purchased 3 small things & nothing to do with quilting. Owl thingies for my daughter for Xmas. Next to Bargain Box for toy stuffing.

Home again it was time to tackle the owl. Fabric had been bought a few years back to make 2 owls & of course never done. I had 2 greens & 2 purples. I consulted another daughter as to which would be best together & we went with the 2 purples. Looks like if the other owl ever gets done, highly unlikely, it will be green. :)
This is the result of the days sewing. Sewing those wings in was a struggle. I'd pinned the darn things well but upon turning out discovered an issue. I was ready to through the darn thing in the bin i can tell you by the time the wing was back in place. Time for a break & a cup of tea.

Next up was to deal with the meat in the fridge. We now have a lovely batch of meat patties & a batch of meatballs all ready for an easy meal any night i don't feel like cooking. Oh lets face it i hardly feel like cooking anytime. :) lol.

After tea the owl got stuffed & his/her base put on. Just hope my daughter likes it now.
I ended my night working on these. Finished love which is block 2 & then started hope.

Happy Stitching,

Oh Jeanette, I can feel your frustration with your owl, naughty little fellow, giving you a hard time, but he looks great now... I am with you on the whole cooking thing too...I hate cooking in summer, its too hot...

Hello Jeanette,

Congrats on getting one owl done. The other can wait or kit it up and give it away!

Merry Christmas and all the best for the festive season. Maybe you should ask Santa if he could do a bit of cooking.
Bev.
