FNSI or should it be SNSI

 I didn't get to sew last night for FNWFs  as I'm spending time at my DDs in the big smoke. We had a lovely evening out instead of sewing , just the girls, my DD , GD and I . Then this morning we went for some brekky before  shopping .. Sew tonight we decided it was time to relax and sew along with Wendy for SNSI with the ladies from the Northern Hemisphere...

DD had a very long awaited UFO. Her scissors keep she started when we went to a Lynette Anderson workshop in Geraldton back in March 2017 sew I finished it for her ....
































Yah!!!!!! done .





DD worked on making a new quilo top to go with this book ....
















It always lovely to sew along with my DD and all my virtual friends too...

Thanks Wendy for organising us after your busy week....

Poof !!!!!

That's how I feel about this week...... It just disappeared ..... so before another week just goes must do a post.

Had fun making  "Kira" Koala's dungarees  ( my No 12 for the Sunday Stitchers UFO challenge)  and  took her out for a photoshoot in the gum tree...












Now No 12 is complete I'm looking forward to seeing what No will be draw next Sunday ?????








Also spent some time this week counting sheep , it's another one on my UFO list and it would be nice if  6 was drawn as I've made a start ??








The pattern is "Scrappy Sheep"  designed by Toni Alexander


Another one using my Scrap Box..
and then on Friday I realised that next Tuesday is our  Days for Girls  monthly meet and I had a pile of shields to sew .....


I will have them done . This is were I'm at tonight. The pile nearest the machine only need top stitching .... The others will have the ends sewn down, turned , ironed and then top stitched....

Well must away , have a shower and go to bed as it's nearly midnight......

Happy Stitching

OPAM for February.....

Well I finished my Pinata Quilt this morning, just in the nick of time to post for this month's OPAM with the lovely Kris........  Don't forget to post your finishes, update your side bar and email Kris....















This quilt was my No 8 UFO challenge for "Sunday Stitchers " is made out of my scrap box and I also joined lots of bits of bindings left over from other quilts to bind it....


Was delighted to have picked up  my Lynette Anderson's "Seaside Town " from the quilters sew on the binding and have it finished and hung on our wall this month....

there were a few 1 1/2" squares left and as it was one of swimmers birthday and who is also a Patch lady I made her these.


Back..........

and front. Small Pincushion and Needle Case to pop in her bag for hand sewing.


and the "PINK " quilt . It is not one of my favorite but I'm sure it will be loved by someone.......













Sunday Stitchers UFO challenge is
No 12 is" Kira the Koala "
She is now sewn together and stuffed




Must away now and get her clothes made.......

Where oh where

has another week gone ?????  it just disappeared again !!! Have been going for my dip with the girls each morning but haven't done much sewing....



thought I'd show you all our bags with our little buckets filled with water lined up on the beach....






we wash our feet before getting into our cars, that way we don't take home piles of sand....


I like the tracks in the dunes from the tiny crabs.....

 
NO 12 was the next number drawn for our "Sunday Stitchers " challenge sew I have it ready to work on today .......













Kira the Koala " 





Must away and get into the  Cave and sew...

Happy Stitching

What a fun filled weekend ..  DD arrived about 1pm on Friday sew we were able to sit and have a nice cuppa and chat before heading off to our retreat.....It was fabulous to join Wendy and my online friends for FNSI as well as my Patch ladies and DD...

after setting up in the hall I got to work sewing my No 8 Sunday Stitchers Challenge the   "Pinata"   blocks which took till Saturday morning ....



Next the Bloom Blocks organised by Cheryll for the Bloom Block Party......


as I had prepared the blocks ready for applique and had plenty of time I did four and joined them onto the top row.

Today with help of  DD and friends I got my  Pinata flimsy sandwiched and pinned ready to quilt...
as well as doing the second set of blocks for Threadology


One large and four small 9 Patch blocks..... I do hope there are no mistakes this week....
