FNSI and a Great Giveaway…

I decided before I could do any sewing for  FNSI  I had to clean out at least ONE box of my fabrics…

002  That’s better….

009

First I made the 6th Block for The Beginner’s Quilt-A-Long..

004


Then completed this Miniature Spool Wall hanging.

006

It was for a gift but I don't know if I can part with it. I love doing the easy binding by wrapping the backing fabric to the front on small projects.

007


Also put together some Granny Squares and made them into a table runner. May join the ladies in the Northern Hemisphere tonight for FNSI to complete it.

 Abbe at Cooper Patch is having a great Giveaway to celebrate the open of her Retreat today.  Do pop over and have a look. You could win a free weekend away or a $100 fabric voucher...
