 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 box to prep some more blocks. Some yummy fabrics had arrived during the week that i wanted to add into the blocks.

I got this block done

Started this one when interrupted by my brother in his search for a new house (he doesn't have internet)

Then the day went down hill. The dog needed to see the vet & the news was not good.
Here we are waiting for my daughter to get to the vets from work to make the decision on what to do. Sadly it was decided to put Nymeria to sleep. She was 11 years old. :( :(.

So the above block was finished when i made it back home. I only had 6 blues to make.

I started 3rd block but the sad day caught up with me & i went to bed.

Pop over here to visit our lovely host Wendy to see who joined in.

Happy Stitching,

The Lucy blocks always look great Jeanette but gosh I am SO so sorry to read about the darling dog having to be put to sleep. That is very sad & I can well imagine how the day caught up with you. Take care Jeanette - sending big hugs x0x0 💙

Always sad to loose one of our fur babies but I’m sure you have many happy memories.
Pretty Lucy blocks.

So sorry to hear about your dog.


 I started FNSI making bias strips. I had several pieces left from when i made the blocks that were long enough to use so i counted how many...
