OPAM and FnwFs

I am pleased to have joined PEG and KRIS for OPAM even though I only have two finishes this month. Thanks heaps ladies......

The first is a Pouch I made for one of my bobbing friends who had a birthday.....


I'm not very good at putting in a zip but was happy with how this one turned out..
                                             (Ellyn do you recognise the fabric??? )

and the second one you can see in my previous post , a FQ SAL quilt...

As it's March 2nd on Friday  it's time to sign up for Cheryll for FnwFs ... I look forward to fun fun night sewing along with you....


Must away to do the dishes

Happy Stitching,

Out Among the Gum Trees...

Another week has flown by before I knew it but I have been keeping busy and finally sandwiched and quilted the flimsy from my previous post.....

I love to take my photos out on the block between the gum trees....
                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                                                 































I just cross hatched through all the blocks and straight lines around the border twice...

Love the backing fabric, great match @ $6 a mtr.....

A sweet quilt that will put a smile on a little ones face....




What have you been busy doing the past week ??  I'm busy working a secret quilt for a special birthday..  Shhhhhhhh !!!!

Happy Stitching

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
