FNSI for Feb.

After cleaning up the Cave and I looked for a fun project to work on with Wendy and friends for FNSI...

Last year I joined in Fat Quarter's Quilt-Along. Each month we made 6 X 5 1/2" blocks for 12 mths  at $5 a mth.  Monies raised went to "Make A Wish Foundation"










Sew thought it was time for me to sew the blocks together


 Now  to find a suitable border...

Thank you sew much Wendy for an enjoyable night's sewing . Look forward to seeing what others did by going HERE over the next few days...

Happy stitching,

Hugz  Maria :)

Lost Mojo

I seam to have lost my mojo but I'm hoping to get back into some fun sewing on Friday by joining the lovely Wendy and friends for FNSI. You can also join in the fun by going HERE to sign up.

Today I need to tidy the Cave as everywhere I look there are bits of the Mystery "On Ringo Lake" by Bonnie Hunter...

I really what to make something quickly and fun as the Mystery never seams to end for me...

Oh it's nearly 7.30am  sew I've got to hurry and get ready for my morning dip.....

Happy Stitching

FnwFs

For Cheryll's FnwFs  I decided it was time to finally make the new curtains for the lounge...
I bought the material way before Christmas and planned to have them up when the family came BUT that didn't happen ....


















Managed to get the two pieces sewn together and the top sewn when I just couldn't be bothered doing any more. I really don't like sewing curtains... sew I sat and stitched the cross stitch...




Much more relaxing.....

Thank you Cheryll for organising us for FnwFs even though you'er on the high seas... Enjoy!!

Will be visiting others over the weekend HERE to see what folks have been doing...

Oh I see this is my 900th post.....

Happy Stitching

Catching up

When I tidied the cupboard I found a few projects I'd forgotten about...










(See the marks on the door?
They are the measurements of the Grandies each time they visited...)








Remember this one Ellyn?
It only needed to be sandwiched and quilted.  All done now.


Also a cross stitch I started some 15 years ago..









I love doing cross stitch but I'm sew slow...

Will leave it out and just do a little at a time...



Still working on Bonnie's "On Ringo Lake" ..   Have been joining the pieces into blocks but look what I did !!!


Some reverse sewing needed.. Grrr!!  The one on the left is the wrong way...

This is a Mystery Medallion I joined on FB  ( sorry Chooky )


We did the center the first month and the ribbon row was this months...

Must away now and shift the sprinkler....

Happy Stitching

Oh no.....

When I opened the cupboard in the Cave


this happened....



think it's time to take everything out and tidy the shelves..    Do you also shove things into the cupboard instead of stacking it nicely on the shelves ??????

Happy Stitching
