This and That.. Plus don't forget to sign up for FNSI

After being in the Perth for nearly two weeks it is nice to home again and trying to get back in the swing of things…

This time we left “Lacy” home sew I bought her a present for being a good girl while my friend Jean dog sat her….. oh we bought Jean a gift too… Not a doggy jacket though..LOL

Lacy June 2014 (1)

I think she likes her new coat. Can you see her smile. LOL

Sweet Anthea organises us each month for “Christmas through the Year”. As I was busy with other things I missed her post for May to see who the winner was so it was a lovely surprise for me when I come home and receive a nice squishy for being the winner..


thank you Anthea. I have a project in mind to make with this fabric and buttons….

In the previous post I showed you some secret sewing .  Melanie was my swap partner for the " Embroidered Mini Swap" run by the lovely Cheryll.

Melanie's Mini 2014

As Melanie has received it I can now show you what I made…I used one of Jenny's Patterns but just changed it a little…. I am sure Jenny won’t mind.

Don’t forget to pop over to Wendy's Blog to sign up for FNSI… I am going to get a project organised sew I am ready to start nice and early.. Look forward to sewing along with you all.

What would we do without all these great ladies that organise us all for these great things we do online… Big Thanks to All.
