FNwF December

Last night i joined in the final Friday night sew in for 2018. Goodness hard to believe another year has flown on by & we'll soon be in 2019. Thankyou to our hostess Cheryll. I sewed along with 13 other lovely ladies.

First thing i did was to trim & turn back the 1/4" seam ready to applique.

Next i made binding

I had hoped to cut out a felt project but had to lie down for a while due to back issues. :(

Last night i did the applique
All the blocks for Send My Love bom are completed. Just in time for Gail Pan's new bom for 2019 which will be all about Christmas. Can't wait to start that one.

Last week this quilt arrived back from Fiona & i managed to get the binding sewn completely down last night. Thankyou Fiona for the wonderful quilting you've done.
Pattern was from joypatches many years ago. I started the blocks & it was put aside. Then a year or so ago i got stuck into it, finished the blocks & made the top up.  I'm so happy it's finally made it to the finish line.

Pop over to Cheryll's to see who all joined in last night & the projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

Snow Happy Hearts.

I didn't get Novembers done as time just seem to race by. Yesterday i prepped both November & December blocks & stitched them last night. So happy i managed to mostly keep up & now they are all done.



Now to figure out how i want to put it together.

Happy Stitching,

Christmas decorating

Yesterday was the designated decorating day. In my house it's the first Saturday after my birthday or the 1st of December, whichever comes first & yesterday they both happened to be the same day. :)

Found some space along the hallway today to hang 2 more decorations. :)

I wish i had room to hang all my decorations. :) I don't usually do the hall but this year i did so my bigger hangings could be on display. Sadly my 2 real big ones still can't be hung as i've not a large enough wall space.

Happy Stitching,

Fat 1/4 birthday swap.

I joined Cheryll again this year in the fat 1/4 birthday swap & received very lovely red fat 1/4's which was my request this year. I'm hoping to make a red & white quilt sometime in the future.
Thankyou Julie, Anthea, Asta, Ilene, Cheryll & Sue for my lovely fat 1/4's & goodies. I'll be eating those jelly beans later on. :)

Happy Stitching,

A few more finishes

Yesterday morning i got to work on the Christmas stocking for my GD. I'd already cut it out on Sunday & just needed to cut the lining & wadding. That done I was ready to sew it together.
Both sides look the same.

Next up was cutting out the oval shape of my ornament stitcheries, then the wadding & backing for those. That done it was time to complete the binding of my Teddy Bear quilt
The beautiful quilting was done by Fiona. The quilting sets the embroidery blocks off perfectly.

That done it was time to make those ornaments up
1 is for a friend & the others for me. :)

Happy Stitching,
