FNSI & a finish.

I started my FNSI off early. I prepared the fabrics for Goodnight Irene. A sew a long run by Terry.
Fortunately for me a lot of the 2-1/2" squares had been already cut out. :) Next up was choosing fabrics for Gail's new BOM A Merry Christmas Garden. I had a hard time choosing some of the fabrics. I walked away for a few hours thinking on them & decided that they would work. Means using stash fabric rather than buying any which make me happy.
By night time i was ready to quietly sit & stitch,
I did the embroidery on these from Michele's BOM Fellowship Of The Flowers. They need to have beads & sparkly wool added yet. I'm trying to find sparkly wool similar to what Michele has used . Lastly i moved onto block 6 of Tail Feathers, a BOM put out a few years back by Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches.
& my finish
To sew what the other ladies got up to pop over here  & visit our lovely host.

Happy Stitching,
