FNSI August

Last night i joined our lovely hostess Wendy for FNSI.

I started out stitching on block 6 of my Christmas BOM. I finished the 's' in presents then stitched 6 & a, went to re-thread my needle only to discover i'd picked up the wrong cottage garden thread when stitching 6 & a. Darn had to unpick them  to restitch with the correct colour thread. I shouldn't have 2 stitchery projects near each other using cottage garden threads. :) Despite that little set back i did get all the letters finished, the stars done & started on the bird.

Pop over to Wendy's blog to discover who joined in last night & what projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

Happy Stitching,

FNwF August.

How did it get to be August already? Anyway yesterday i joined in with our lovely hostess Cheryll & lots of other ladies for Friday Night with Friends

I needed to bind a quilt that i'd received back from Fiona last month so i started the day by making the binding & then attaching it by machine. As always Fiona has weaved her magic & the quilting is beautiful.

This is Ice Cream Soda. It was an EPP bom from Tales Of Cloth in 2017. All the flowers came from my scrap basket & the borders from my stash. The only thing i bought for it was the backing. The top was completed in January 2018 & it has been patiently waiting it's turn to be quilted.
The afternoon/evening was spent hand stitching the binding down whilst watching a series on Netflix.

After i machined the binding down i ironed on the transfer for block 6 of my Christmas BOM.
Now i'd better get busy stitching. :)

After i'd put the last stitch in the binding i added a few stitches to this little stitchery.
I managed to get the bird done on the bottom half before bed called me.

Pop over to visit Cheryll to find the links to the ladies who joined in & see what projects they all worked on.

Happy Stitching,

I was given a bag of home grown oranges by my daughter & was wondering what I should make. With an abundance of eggs from my chooks cooking was in order.

First up was whole orange cake

Next I made the little white chocolate & cranberry loaves.

I need to work on my drizzle skills. 😊.

Happy stitching/cooking
