FNSI February

 I joined in FNSI yesterday & I had hoped to sit at the machine but it was still way to hot to do a thing. Roll on winter please.

 Late in the evening i got my 3 stitcheries ready to applique to the backgrounds.

That done i finished appliqueing the last 4 triangles(right side) to this strip. So now i can get that ufo finished off.
The yellows really aren't that bright. They are a very muted colour.

Then i thought "what to do?" more Coffins, Libby hexies or just what i didn't know. I had to fix up the mess Bella made beside my chair when she knocked several things down & i found what i was going to do.  I was going to start a new project. lol
I started sewing together my little EPP thimbles. I'm not sure how big this will be. I've 200 to begin with & as they are only about 1" across the top & 2" across the bottom. Length is just under 2 " so it will take a while to make a big quilt. :).

Pop over & visit our lovely hostess Wendy & to find the links to everyone who joined i & what projects they worked on.

Happy stitching,

Ohh Ive seen a few thimble quilts, they are very tempting! Alas I didnt stitch last night, but looks like you had a productive time!

It's very hard to get motivated when it's so hot.
It's great getting some stitcheries ready and a bit of EPP sewn.
A table runner would be nice out of the tiny thimbles?
