Double FnwFs ….

Last night I got all the essentials organised early ready to stitch along with Cheryll and others for FnwFs…..


P1000918



First I wanted to make the block for my  partner in the  Aussie Block Swap.  She chose a “Texas Star”….  I didn't realise it would take all night….Lots of reverse sewing and No 1 going in the bin. I finished one BUT I am still not happy..

Sew tonight I decided to join the ladies in the Northern Hemisphere and just do some hand sewing….

Have completed my first block for May in Chooky’s  SAL.   Sew relaxing and there was a soppy movie on too “Dear John”….


Thank you Cheryll and I will be seeing what others have sewn for FnwFs soon..

  6. It's the unsewing that is always such a time eater. Both blocks looks great to me, Maria.

    The block looks fine, I'm sure your recipient will love it...

  15. Your blocks look great - but would be tricky to make. I saw some of the movie too - probably would have continued watching if I had had something to knit too.

  20. It's so frustrating when for whatever reason the things we are sewing just don't want to cooperate. Glad you had a much better night when you joined us in the Northern Hemisphere for a second night of stitching.
