FNSI with WENDY

It was sooooooooooo cold last night ( 0 deg ) that it was nice to sit in the cave with heater on and sew…….
I found my AUSSIE Swap Blocks and decided to put them together.

Really like the way the flimsy looks hanging in the trees this morning. Love all the blocks but especially the one with the wave hand stitched by Ank . It was more luck than design that the wave is the right way. LOL.

I always have something under my machine as leaders and enders  so I also completed two “  Round the World Scrappy Blocks.”

Last night was the first  FNSI with WENDY who has kindly taken over for a few months while Heidi and Bobbi have a break. Thank you Wendy. I had a great night stitching along with my blogging friends.

  17. Lovely work Mum. It sounds like it was colder every where but where we were.
    I had planed to finish that last stitchery for the little birdie quilt on holiday's! Put it on the light box traced it put it in my bag.
    When I got it out there was nothing! I had used one of those fading pens noooooo.
    Love Sandra
