2 posts in one day, it's a miracle 😊

1 last finish for April
After I finished i traced this Christmas stitchery
And retraced the 4th stitchery from the previous posts collection

Happy Stitching,

More Stitching

Some time back i was inspired to trace out a quilt i'd wanted to do for ages but as with all things it was partially started then pushed aside. Last week i finally got back to it. The stitcheries are from a quilt called Fields Of Lavender by Red Brolly. It was in a Homespun back in 2004.
I went to start the 3rd block & discovered i'd traced it onto the wrong side of the fabric. So glad i wasn't half way through stitching it as that would have been a disaster.  So i started the 4th block instead.

Happy Stitching,

I've finally finished the stitcheries for In My Garden. Still haven't chosen fabrics for the rest of the quilt. Be a job for this week.

As i want to make the bag on the front cover i've started to stitch the panel that goes on the bag.
A little finish i had during the week for the kitten mini swap i'm in
I thought the design was so cute. I'm planning on making the whole quilt for myself. The design was free from Jodie.

Happy stitching,

FNSI April

Still working on my In My Garden stitcheries. This is the last of the big ones. Right from the start i've been contemplating what fabrics to use to finish this quilt. Still none the wiser now the stitcheries have nearly been finished.

It would appear, fingers crossed, that i've fixed the problem mentioned in my previous post. No help from Blogger, lot of help from li'l ole me, that made my brain ache, & a little help from my friend Shez.

Happy Stitching,

My stitching week

I've been trying to get my ufo's under control & also stitcheries that have been traced out for some time. That's the handwork. Slowly succeeding. No if i could only summon the enthusiasm to sit at the machine & completely finish them.
Free stitchery from Lynette. That done i finally got back to stitching blocks from In My Garden by Natalie Bird.

Started the 2nd to last big block last night
There are 6 small ones left after that.

Now there seems to be an issue with Blogger & i've complained but have received no reply. Seems that for some blogs i comment on the blog owner isn't getting notifications so they have no idea i've commented unless they check the comment part of their blogs. I've tired changing my email attached to my blog account & it made no difference. I'm not the only one this is happening to. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Happy Stitching,

Friday Night With Friends - April.

I've had this stitchery traced for quite a while. It was  free pattern from Sue. Last night was the perfect time to get it out & start it.

Pop over to our lovely hostess Cheryll to find links to who all joined in last night.

Happy Stitching


 I started FNSI making bias strips. I had several pieces left from when i made the blocks that were long enough to use so i counted how many...
