Quilters blessings

Yesterday my quilter's blessing stitcheries came off the ufo pile & made into a hanging.

The last bonus project stitchery of Gail Pans Christmas bom from 2019 was made into a mug rug. I think i'll us it as a candle mat at Christmas time.

Happy Stitching,

Schoolgirl Sampler Sewalong week 3

 I think the hardest part of making these little 4-1/2" blocks is choosing the fabric. That is not to say that some aren't a wee bit hard to make. It has been fun though going through my reproduction stash. I think i can safely say there won't be any repeat fabrics throughout the quilt .:) :).

FNSI January

 Last night it was time for the first FNSI of 2021. Looking forward to a year of sewing with all the lovely ladies who join in each month. Hosted again by the lovely Wendy.

I started early. I had been planning to start along with all the other ladies who joined The Schoolgirl Sampler sewalong run by designer Kathleen Tracy on Facebook. But things got in the way. Fast forward & they were up to 12 & week 3 blocks were looming. I figured i'd make a start & just sew 3 or 4 each day until i was caught up. But no that isn't what i did at all.

I had got to 9 & decided to quit but then thought to myself  "oh it's only 3 more". All 12 done & dusted. They are done in reproduction fabrics & as i put each fabric aside i'm putting them in a box to see it i can make the quilt without any repeat fabrics. :).So there you have it 12 x 4-1/2" blocks done in one day & week 3 blocks come out today. :) So i'm off to sew them today.

In the evening i did a little EPP.

Just the 3 in the photo & the paths.

This is Libby Morgan so far. 1 more row. The borders will be 4 to 6" making it a nice lap quilt.

Happy Stitching,

Yesterday was the first Friday Night with Friends for 2021. Cheryll, our lovely hostess, is hosting us again this year.

I finished off the little Christmas stitchery i'd started earlier in the week

It only needed the stars & french knots & it was done.

 I'd started this BOM last year from Fig 'n' Berry but put it aside to work on other things. Thought i'd at least try & get this first block finished. :)

I had the bird & the little girl to finish. Now to start on all the satin stitch. I really hate satin stitch. :) :).

Pop over here to find the links to who joined in & what projects they worked on.

a tiny dent in the ufo's

 After a delay of 2 days due to a migraine i was able to get back to sewing yesterday. I completed the purple top from my previous post. Although not quilted yet i will count it is a little finish. Last night i added the running stitch that went around the inside of the big blocks.

I didn't think i'd get this one done at all let lone completed even though it's a small hanging. I had to go out for a while & then sitting stirred up my osteo arthritis. :(.

Pattern by Fig 'n' berry. It's not crooked it's just the way i took the photo.

2 down umpty more to go. lol.

Happy Stitching,
