FnwFs and Stay at Home Retreat.

I  was lucky enough on Friday evening to not only sew along with my virtual friends for FnwFs but also the ladies from Patch for our Stay at Home Retreat weekend.

Didn't work on any of the projects in the previous post but took along two different ones...

This one

a great pattern By "Cluck Cluck Sew".....

At the end of this month our Patch group is doing a "Mondo Bag " Workshop.
we needed to pre -cut 192 = 2 1/2 " squares and sew into 4 patches. I'm doing mine as a leader and ender while doing the blocks for the quilt.

Thanks to Cheryll for organising our little group for another fun night of stitching. I'll visit you all over the next few days HERE.

All the ladies have busy working on many different projects ....

Helen sewed the last of the binding on this amazing Table Runner.

Yvonne's working on a One Block wonder table cloth.

Avery is making a Splendid Sampler Block.

Jan's doing a quilt for her son...

Jenny's making a "Shaggy Quilt"

Linda's doing blocks for a Christmas Quilt'

Mary's blocks for a Japanese one

There are some ladies projects I didn't get to photograph but you can see how busy we are.
Hope to do another post on the retreat later..

Must away now and get ready for bed. Another day of sewing tomorrow.  😍

Happy Stitching.

Side Tracked and FnwFs sign up.

I went into the " Cave " this morning to sort out what to take to Patch today as well as organise something for FnwFs and we are also having a  " Stay at Home Retreat " this weekend but got sidetracked.

Don't know why but I started digging in the Scrap Box

 and got out the  " Pinata " UFO  blocks and the " Scrap Sheep " pattern by Toni  from The Red Boot Quilt Company

They were not what I intended to do... I have the binding to put onto " On Ringo Lake "

Love the swirly flower quilting Deb did....

and I'm trying to finish Lynette Anderson's Seaside Town this month........

Guess there's no shortage of projects for me to work on... Now which one first ?????

What will you be working on for  FnwFs... You can pop over HERE to sign up...

Must away to Patch and enjoy stitching with my friends.

Happy Stitching
