FNwF July

Last night Wendy hosted us for FNwF & I was able to join in.

Earlier in the afternoon I traced the 3rd block for Love and Hugs from Australia Christmas designs.  Night time i added the "flower" to the centre on block number 2.

Then started stitching block number 3.

Pop over to Wendy's blog to see who joined in & the projects they worked on.

FNwF July

Last night I joined in FNwF hosted by our lovely Cheryll

My project of choice was the first little Christmas stitchery that the lovely ladies of Love and Hugs from Australia on Facebook have given us to stitch. They are offering this one free too.
They are only small so quick to stitch up. 4" finished. I chose to stitch mine using Mistletoe by Cottage Garden Threads.

Last night i joined in FNSI for June hosted by lovely Wendy . Oh dear, how is it June already & already half gone. 😔.

My poor little stitchery met with an accident. I'd started it earlier in the week & would've been finished but I came down with a migraine.  About lunchtime i thought I'd get a start on FNSI but discovered marks on my stitchery. What on earth I wondered.  I realised the cat with nose problems had been sitting on my chair & sneezed on my stitchery leaving blood spots on most of it.

Hmm what to do, will it washout & if it did that would mean my pen would wash out. Dilemmas for sure. So I thought try washing it out & retracing & if that failed I'd just have to start again. When I left it all the vines & most of the berries had been done. Luckily for me the blood washed out & I could retrace my pattern.

 I finished the berries, traced the birds, chain stitched the tops of the banners, got 1 banner stitched & started the 2nd. Doesn't look like I'll have the next one finished before Mondays stitchery is sent to me. 😔.

Christmas BOM

I've been busy stitching the mystery Christmas BOM from Fig n Berry. I didn't start straight away as I was stitching the patterns from Love & Hugs from Australia. I stopped stitching those as there are 23 stitcheries in the Christmas BOM & I knew if I didn't get busy it wouldn't be done for Christmas. I was nearly caught up. Hoping to have the next 2 done before the next pattern is sent to me on Monday.

This is how the layout will look. I don't know about borders yet as we'll find out after we get block 23. There is 4 rows to the quilt.

The place I bought my jigsaw from got some more in so I bought another 2.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF #2

Despite almost forgetting it was Friday I did sit & do a little stitching for FNwF hosted by Cheryll.

Life has a way of throwing a curve ball at you & my mind just wasn't on stitching at all.
I'd started stitching the green Wednesday night at my Mum's. Got that finished last night & started the red before I gave up & went to bed.
