FNSI August.

I started my FNSI by cutting & then sewing the binding on a quilt recently quilted by Fabulous Fiona. I started cutting out the plaid pieces when i lived up north early 2000's then put away until recent years. I cut the gold pieces & both borders & voila!!! a quilt top was done. Now it is a fully completed quilt. :)

My next little project hit a bump in the road when i realised the bias was the wrong width. I guess when i was buying it online i was too busy making sure i wasn't buying way more metres then needed that i forgot to check width. :( Hopefully the new bias arrives Tuesday. I trimmed the stitcheries back, added wadding & the backing to baby "C's" banner.

3rd project was a Christmas hanging from earlier this year. All it needed was  the wadding, backing & a little quilting.
Another cute one from Fig n Berry.

The last thing i did in my sewing room before a marathon binding session was to prep this months Snowman.

Thankyou Wendy for hosting us for FNSI. Pop over to Wendy's blog to find links to who joined in & what projects they worked on.

FNwF August

I signed up to FNwF eagerly with plans to finish a few ufo's & hopefully put my Round We Go bom together until i realised that once again my daughter's orthodontist appointment fell on sewing Friday. :( :(. By the time i do the trip in & back home it leaves me tired & little time to sew. I really need to talk to the receptionist & tell her no appointments on sewing Friday.

Sew what to do? My Grandson asked me what i was doing when they called in for a few minutes & i told him i was contemplating what i would do with my evening. Whether to do the outline stitching of my cross stitch, some EPP or find some patterns to trace out. Tracing some stitcheries won out.

I traced one of Gail Pan's designs & it won the "which will i stitch first" decision.

The other one ready to stitch is from Fig N Berry.

Such a cute little Christmas design.

Pop on over to visit with our lovely hostess Cheryll to see who joined in & what projects they worked on.

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...
