Last night i joined in FNSI for June hosted by lovely Wendy . Oh dear, how is it June already & already half gone. 😔.

My poor little stitchery met with an accident. I'd started it earlier in the week & would've been finished but I came down with a migraine.  About lunchtime i thought I'd get a start on FNSI but discovered marks on my stitchery. What on earth I wondered.  I realised the cat with nose problems had been sitting on my chair & sneezed on my stitchery leaving blood spots on most of it.

Hmm what to do, will it washout & if it did that would mean my pen would wash out. Dilemmas for sure. So I thought try washing it out & retracing & if that failed I'd just have to start again. When I left it all the vines & most of the berries had been done. Luckily for me the blood washed out & I could retrace my pattern.

 I finished the berries, traced the birds, chain stitched the tops of the banners, got 1 banner stitched & started the 2nd. Doesn't look like I'll have the next one finished before Mondays stitchery is sent to me. 😔.

Pop over to visit Wendy to see who joined in & what lovely projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

Christmas BOM

I've been busy stitching the mystery Christmas BOM from Fig n Berry. I didn't start straight away as I was stitching the patterns from Love & Hugs from Australia. I stopped stitching those as there are 23 stitcheries in the Christmas BOM & I knew if I didn't get busy it wouldn't be done for Christmas. I was nearly caught up. Hoping to have the next 2 done before the next pattern is sent to me on Monday.

This is how the layout will look. I don't know about borders yet as we'll find out after we get block 23. There is 4 rows to the quilt.

The place I bought my jigsaw from got some more in so I bought another 2.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF #2

Despite almost forgetting it was Friday I did sit & do a little stitching for FNwF hosted by Cheryll.

Life has a way of throwing a curve ball at you & my mind just wasn't on stitching at all.
I'd started stitching the green Wednesday night at my Mum's. Got that finished last night & started the red before I gave up & went to bed.

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...
