FNSI at Retreat

For this month's FNSI  I was at  Patch's " Christmas in July" retreat sew I was able to stitch along with Wendy  and lots of lovely ladies...

On Friday afternoon and evening I put together the Factory Block for "My Small World"


and appliqued Block 6 for "Gnomes on Holidays"



Thank You Wendy  for another enjoyable FNSI















Saturday I decided to work on " Soul Searching "...
Boy spent sew much time reverse sewing. GRRR!


but did get 2 1/2 blocks made..

Our lovely workshop co-coordinator did such a fabulous job of setting up the tables for our Christmas Dinner as well as all the extras we received  .....



















            Lots more decorations to go


Just looked amazing and we had a delicious traditional "Christmas Dinner" with homemade Plum pud and custard for sweets as well as cheesecake. Sorry no photos.....too busy enjoying the company and food...

Must away for an early night , will continue post on retreat later.

Happy Stitching.

  3. The Small World block looks great as does the Gnome block. Your gray background on Soul Searching looks fabulous. That pattern remains one of my favorite finishes.
