Zoom Zoom

 Yesterday i joined in the Zoom group that Chookyblue had set up. Thankyou Chookyblue.  It was a very lovely day & so nice to have a wonderful group of ladies to sit & sew with. I really miss having sewing days & i really hope we can do it again sometime soon. :)

I picked my neglected Libby Morgan quilt to work on & i managed to get 4 flowers surrounded whilst chatting & the other flowers whilst watching the football last night. Sadly my team lost & won't be in the grand final next week.

I counted about 80 flowers so i'll work on an 8 by 10 row quilt with borders. Hopefully it will be around a single size.

Happy Stitching

FNSI October

Yesterday was FNSI hosted by Wendy. After some farnakling around with more of my SIL's stash i settled down in the evening to do a little crafting.

First up was to prep these last few paths for my Libby Morgan quilt. I'd done a heap on Thursday night & just needed to finish off these.

Not sure how many path hexies i need but i've enough to make a good start on the quilt.

Next up is one of my SIL's projects. Everything is cut out & there are 3 put together but as i was making up the hexagon centres i realised not enough had been cut out. I have no idea if there is any more of the fabrics used or where i'd find it if there was. I've decided to go with a plain centre to match the diamonds that go along with these pieces.

This is what they look like finished but i will have to take out the centres of the already made ones & replace with the cream fabric.



Pop over to visit Wendy to see who joined in & what projects they worked on. Thanks to Wendy for hosting us again.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF October

 Holy heck how did it get to be October already. First time ever I think that I can say I'm glad the year is nearly over. Hoping 2021 is a heck of a lot better than 2020.

Anyway yesterday was time for FNwF hosted by lovely Cheryll. I sometimes think I'll just give up on doing anything on the Friday sewing days as my plans seem to go out the window. My fault yesterday for dithering around. Ah well.

I decided to sit down in the afternoon & drag out my long neglected Libby Morgan quilt. The hexies had been made ages back & all I needed to do was to choose fabric for the centres & then sew them altogether. I surprised myself & made more up than I thought I would. 😊😊.

I  think I need to draw myself up a plan to dedicate some evenings to EPP,  some to stitcheries & some to applique instead of just embroidering all the time. I need to get my ufos done & dusted though a lot of them just need me to sit at the machine to finish them off. After seeing what my SIL left unfinished as we've been sorting through her craft stuff to sell off it really made me sad & the realisation that I need to get my stuff sorted out.

Pop over to visit Cheryll to see who joined in last night & what their choice of lovely projects were worked on.

Happy Stitching,
