FNSI October

 Yesterday was FNSI hosted by our lovely Wendy. When Wendy told me earlier in the week it was time for FNSI on Friday i was a bit gobsmacked. Surely not i thought but when checking the calendar there was no getting around the fact that yes we are in the 3rd week of October & that this month is now nearly gone. Oh c__p that means in another month i'll have seen another year around the sun. :)

The first project i did some work on was this


I'd finished the stitchery & EPP a few days ago. All i needed to do was remove the papers, give it a good press & then stitch down. It's part of a quilt from Crabapple Hill & was going to get the whole pattern but after a good deal of thought decided on just the first block. Now to decide on how to finish it off.

Next i trimmed up the edges of my Halloween runner & cut some borders. 

I was going to finish the runner but my daughter asked me if i wanted to go over to the shopping centre & i said yes as i needed to get something at K-Mart. So back to runner today or tomorrow.

I'm having a love/hate relationship with the next project. I'd sewn 5 of the 6 EPP pieces Thursday night & despite marking the positions & careful pinning i couldn't get the 6th one to fit. Yesterday reverse sewing was in order. That done it was back to pinning & marking again with a small amount of fudging. I'm hoping once i'll be able to press it it will look better otherwise it maybe thrown in the corner & never finished. :)

Pop over here to see who joined in FNSI & the projects that were worked on.

Happy Stiching,

the weeks sure are flying.
Your epp projects look great even if one was being a little difficult.
Your halloween runner is going to look so great!

Your EPP project looks very good from where I am sitting. Far too pretty to end up in the corner as a UFO.

I said something similar on my blog post - October?? eek - let's skip November

Lots of projects there and I'm sure the reverse sewing and tweaking will solve the dilemma.

Where oh where has the year gone??????
Hope your EPPing works out for you.
The Halloween table runner will be great.

I agree Jeanette - the year seems to be going by incredibly fast!! I love all your projects & your Halloween runner will be wonderful. I hope you get the EPP project in your last pic sorted out. xx

I do hope you can make your project work. It would be a shame to be discarded. I love your table runner. Such fun.

Your projects are looking lovely. I'm falling out of love with EPP too. I may just take my latest one off the papers and see if I can sew on my machine. LOL
