Slow going EPP

I'm still growing my EPP project. Last night i added the other half of the last row.
I then prepared the pieces for the next row
I'm not officially out of white pieces but there isn't enough left to do anything with. I was going to leave it there, add a border & maybe use it as a table runner but then i'd have a pile of green & pink shapes over. So i will go to Spotlight & my LQS & see if i can find a white homespun. I should have enough of the floral white for 2 maybe 3 rows more if i can find the white homespun. After that i think i need to do some embroidery or applique whilst i wait for my 2 new EPP projects to arrive though i do have another new one ready to start along with working on Lucy Boston. Time to work out a program to follow so it's jusy not all EPP. :)

Happy Stitching,

FNSI February

Nothing exciting happened with my FNSI. I'm still working on my EPP project. I'm really trying to finish a project before starting anything new. I normally wouldn't sew a project this way but when you don't exactly have a pattern & no idea what was cut out by the lady i bought it from i have to wing it.
I managed to prepare all those little squares & sew on the row above them. I've figured i've enough to make it this size plus 1 more row on the bottom. Then i'm out of the white fabric & very little left of the white print. But i'll have heaps of the pink & green shapes left over. Maybe i could do a few more rows around using different white fabrics. I'll have to see as not very big even if i add a border or.

My latest project.

The EPP i started working on last week is slowly growing.
No much this week as i was out with a migraine for several days. I'm not sure how big this will be as i bought it in a destash. Partly started & the shapes all cut. I'm hoping it will be lap size at least. Thinking about it last night i'll have to see if i can find a similar white fabric to fill in the triangle shapes or just some border fabric to applique it down to.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF February

I had plans, lots of plans. Why i make plans i don't know as they never work out. I knew nothing was happening in the morning as i would be out but i'd planned on tracing out some embroidery in the afternoon. Due to the heat i ended up with a headache & then spent the time asleep.  So what did i do for FNwF you ask? Well i worked on Colonial Garden.
I'm a bit over it now. I almost had the last little side bits added when bed called me & i discovered i'd miscounted the green triangles & i'm short one. All i've left to do is in the bottom left corner before it's off to the sewing machine for the borders. Just 4 little pieces left. Hooray.  Now to see what other ufo's need to be finished into tops.

Colonial Garden update

Last night i finally got row 6 added.
It's the last row on the right hand side. The quilt won't be very big, only lap size. I prepared all the filler bits last night & made a start down one side. After that i've to add a border.

Happy Stitching,


 I had planned to sew for FNSI but i really lack any enthusiasm to sit & sew. I pottered around for a while then dragged out the Lucy bo...
