FNSI

Last night I worked on two small projects.

003

the first was my BOM from Lynette Anderson. It seemed like a long time since I just sat and stitched.

005

Then I sewed the 3” Ohio Stars to go on top BUT they are too big. My turned out 31/2” so now I have to make another set. Grrrrrr!!

After making the Cotton Reel Wall Hanging a few weeks ago I decided to make mini a version. It is only 11” X 14”.

I love the border fabric.

Now I am off to post on Flickr and see what my other Aussie mates have been up to.

  2. You had a good night of sewing Maria. I was going to sign up for FNSI as we were actually home but then I sat and looked at blogs and did the washing! Next time!

  3. O Maria, I love your mini Cotton Reel Wall Hanging! That would certainly be lovely to have two of them to turn into pillows.Everybody would know that a fiber artist lives at your house - or - even smaller for potholders for the kitchen.WELLLLLLL - you are so talented -why not spread it around your house???? : )

    Of course the other piece is lovely too! Thank you so much for sharing-you are so gifted. : )

  4. awesome work! I think we should do a friday MORNING sew in, LOL I am so (sew) useless in the evenings. I guess I could do the FNSI in the morning since it would be evening where you are, right?

  17. Those lovely blocks are destined for greatness! Perhaps a little zipper bag? I LOVE that spools wall hanging, and the BOM gingerbread persons are wonderful. Well done, you!

  18. Your gingerbread block is very sweet. And I love your mini spool quilt - the border fabric is just right!

  19. Your gingerbread men block is really cute. And that fabric you used for the borders of your cotton reel wall hanging is great. Sounds like a productive FNSI to me.

  23. I love your block for the Christmas quilt, it is beautiful. And your cotton reel wall hanging is gorgeous, are the reels made up of strips of fabric? It is so effective!

  24. Nice work! Especially love your wall hanging!

  25. The mini spools hanging is lovely. Frustrating when blocks don't fit, isn't it. I had to do some unsewing on Friday night too. I think I was just tired after a long week. Love the colours/fabrics you are using in the BOM by the way.
