Tuffet Pincushion

 Many years back after seeing one made i bought a Tuffet In A Tin by Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched. I didn't do a thing with it until earlier this year when i put together the hexagons for the top & bottom.

 As it is time to stop procrastinating & waiting for my sewjo to return i got it out of my "to be finished" basket & completed it today.

I  did have some troubles with sewing it together & on hindsight i would do the sewing together a little differently but i followed the pattern so i figured i didn't do to badly. :)

FNSI September

 Although it wasn't announced i still did some stitching as if it was FNSI. :)

I was feeling a bit bored with my hexie star quilt & i didn't want to work on my bom stitcheries so i started a new project. Lol.

Zoom time

 Yesterday Chooky invited us to join her again for a lovely Zoom day sewing along with ladies from all over the world. I did miss a couple of ladies from the northern hemisphere in the morning.

I sewed together 1 row of my star hexies & half of a 2nd row before my laptop chucked a fit & turned my screen pink. Sadly I had to leave the Zoom chat which was nice as always.

I kept sewing last night & finished the 2nd row.

And started adding a previously finished row to the top

I'll be glad when I get my new laptop this week. I really don't like using my tablet for doing posts & I can't comment on some blogs. :(.

Thankyou Chooky & all the ladies who joined in yesterday for a wonderful day.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF September

 My day started early for FNwF.

I'd finished this hexie flower off a while back but really didn't know what to do with it. The little box it came in just has photo's for ideas no actual pattern. I did think i would make a needlecase but as i was appliqueing i decided it will make a lovely label for one of my EPP quilts.

Next to do was fight with this top to get it quilted. Not sure what the problem was & some of the quilting looks like a dogs dinner. I did unpick a lot but i think my machine just didn't like the wadding. :(

I tried to take a photo this morning before i left for northern NSW but it was just to dark being overcast & this was what i ended up with.

A little photo bomber who thought the quilt was for her. lol

So when i got back sadly it was already dark & i tried again for photo's but didn't like any. Thinking maybe it's just my camera i tried taking a photo with my phone hoping it would be better.

I don't think it's much better. :(

Pop over to visit Cheryll to see who joined in.

Not letting the grass grow.......

 ....... since i made August's 8 churn dash blocks yesterday i figured i was on a roll & that as today was the 1st of September  i would just continue on & make the last 8 blocks. :)

Once those were done i laid them all out to see how they look together.

This is not the layout i just place them this way to see them all .Now to cut sashings & setting triangles ready to finish the top off. 

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...
