FNSI

It is always nice to sew along with Wendy and the ladies for FNSI.
I decided I just needed to put my “Charming Stars” under the machine and go…

Managed to finish quilting around the stars and a small star in the centre of each.

Nearly did all the shadow quilting along the sashing when the bobbin run out . Sew called it a night.

Thought I would join the Northern Hemisphere ladies last night but just couldn’t get motivated.

Thank you Wendy for another lovely night sewing with you all…


Off for my walk, brekky at the cafe and a dip . Will visit the others to see what you all did for FNSI later today..

  10. Since you did such a fine job with your quilting, can I send my 2 over for you to quilt?? I'm on a little vaca, so not getting anything done. Loving the ocean and some warm weather though! And I got some brown pelican pics for you today.

  11. Doesn't. That annoy you when the bobbin runs out. I find that I am generally just in my stride when that happens. Bigger bobbins are called for I say. Great start on your quilting.
