My Sewing Week

I finished the borders to Fields of Lavender
Very hard to get a good photo of them. :(.

 Then during the week i forced myself into the sewing are & have 3 finishes. I was asked is my mojo back. No it isn't i'm just making myself do it there isn't any enthusiasm for sewing/quilting yet. I work on projects at night because sewing whilst watching tv is easier than reading & watching tv. :)

On my sewing table was another little project from the Gail Pan tutor weekend which needed some work done to it. I'd finished 2 little baskets at the tutor weekend & the 3rd cut out when time ran out.
Wednesday night i finished the 3rd basket & added the embroidery. Now to decide whether to do the other 6 baskets from the pattern or just make a small project with these 3.

 After that i decided it's time to work on my Trip Around the World again. Thursday afternoon i spent cutting out the needed squares for another 5 rows.
& have started adding them.

Happy Stitching,

FNSI May & lost mojo

Last night i joined our lovely hostess Wendy for Friday Night Sew In. As i seem to have post my mojo all that was done was finish the stitching on a little stitchery i started Thursday night.
Not sure what i'll make it into yet.

Pop over to Wendy's blog for links to see what everyone else got up to last night.

Happy Stitching

Just a little stitching.

Not a lot happening in the way of sewing here. I've been stitching the Christmas stitchery on & off for the past week. Flare up of excruciating pain doesn't allow me to do a lot.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF's May

I'd forgotten when i signed up for FNwF's that i'd be out most of Friday & wasn't sure what time in the evening i'd be getting home & if i'd get any stitching done at all. Luckily I arrived back just in time for Better Homes & Garden followed by Grantchester. All i had left on the final block for Fields Of Lavender was half of 1 flower, the border, stems & french knots.
I noticed after i took a photo the flowers look like little faces. Unfortunately for me for some reason back when i traced the blocks out i didn't cut & trace the borders. Now i have to see if i've any of the background fabric left. I can't even go to the shop i bought it from as they are having a closing down sale & all the tone on tones are gone. :(. As i really liked this print i'm sure there is another big piece in the bottom of the cupboard.

Pop over to visit our lovely hostess Cheryll to find the links to see what everyone got up to 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...
