Well here we are at the last FNSI for 2021, 1 week away from Christmas & 2 weeks away from 2022.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting FNSI throughout the year.
For FNSI yesterday i finally got to sit & finish my GD's Christmas present.
Next was to make a 10 minute table runner. I bought this kit many years ago & in my cleaning & sorting i found it & decided to get it made this year.

Well here we are the final FWnF for 2021. Boy that time has just flown by. Thankyou to Cheryll for hosting us all again this year. I look forward to more sewing nights in 2022.
I had plans of what i wanted to sew but woke up not in the best of moods so i read most pf the day instead. In the evening i didn't feel like stitching any projects that i'm currently working on so what to do?
Oh i know i will start the project that just arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon. My son had asked me what i wanted for my birthday & i had told him i didn't want anything. Then a day or so later Marg Low Designs posted about her latest pattern/kit & i sent my son the link & said you can get me this. Instead he gave me the money to order it. :)
Getting the 6 little stitcheries traced out, 1 completed & the 2nd nearly done was how i spent my evening.

This is a long post so a cup of tea & some biscuits may be in order. Some of the photo's aren't the best. My camera is playing up.
I started decorating on Sunday, trees done by my daughter yesterday & i finished today by getting my 2 really big quilts hung.

I made this pattern many, many years ago from a Chook Shed pattern. I thought it was on my blog but as i couldn't find it maybe i made it before 2008 when i started blogging. Blogger seems to have changed things around making it harder to look.
Anyway i was never happy with the way it was put together from the pattern, just the backing & front, no wadding. So after quite a few years i carefully unpicked it & there is sat with promises to myself each year that i'd get it out & fix it up. A few days ago i made myself get it out & yesterday made a new backing, cut of a piece of wadding & set to finishing it off. Yay for me it is done & can go under the tree this year complete with photo bomber. :) ;).

Not a lot of sewing yesterday for FNSI. Thanks for hosting us again Wendy.
I cut out a small bag for my GD for Christmas. Sewed the front panel & added the applique. Then i set about looking where i put a pile of red fat 1/4's when i moved. I came across a pattern this week i really like. I had received them in a birthday swap & had them where i could see them if i found a pattern i liked. So they were packed away but i wasn't sure where i put them. I found them tucked away in a drawer with other red fabrics. Yay.
Then i decided to move crates around that just got shoved in the room when i moved. Probably wasn't a good idea as i moved the stack the cat uses to get up on the cupboard. She had to jump further when getting down.
Afternoon & time for Netflix & hand sewing. Stitched all the applique &embroidery
the pattern it comes from is actually a sewing set but i think it's ideal for little girls as a carry bag.
And a cat shape which i stitched the embroidery to & the applique heart. Needs to be sewn together & stuffed to pop inside the bag.

Yesterday i joined Friday Night with Friends hosted by Cheryll.
My day started with a little housekeeping, repairing a skirt. Not my favourite thing to do but if i want to wear the skirt i must repair it. :)
I'd recently finished an applique Christmas runner so i found wadding & backing for it. My daughter was coming over for help sewing some faux leather pencil cases & i nearly finished the quilt before she arrived. Unfortunately despite the test run working on faux leather scraps the actual cases didn't sew together well. I hope she figures out what to do as i think there was about 10 in the pile to make.
Back to quilting & binding after she left.
That done i started stitching a little "joy" banner from The Raspberry Rabbits.
That was my day. Thankyou for hosting us Cheryll.
