FnwFs 2

Over this time of isolation Cheryll has kindly organised us for two nights a month of FnwFs to keep us busy and to sew along with our virtual friends , was great thanks Cheryll . From next July ( really) it will be back to once a month again.

Before I could start on any fun sewing last night I needed to make a new cover for my dryer which lives outside. When we had the dust storm the other week the old cover was destroyed.....

I set up the overlocker and was happily sewing away when the thread broke, GRRRRR !!!!
Had to be the No 4 which is a doozie to thread.......

Took about an hour of "CALM" words before it was all ready to go again....

Finally finished the cover and had a cuppa and then onto to getting out my fun sewing ... It's going to be a quilt for me and I started HERE then worked on some more HERE sew I've decided it will be a great WOOFA  project that is another great SAL Cheryll organises.....

First I needed to re- stitch a few flying geese to fit the centre block....


Then I stitched the circles on the corner blocks before deciding on the next small border....

I chose to cut the four different strips ..
Managed to join one before going to bed.... Happy with my progress....

Must away and have some late lunch.

Happy stitching and stay safe.

Hugs  Maria  ❤


  1. your quilt is going to be lovely...working from a pattern, or your head?

  2. Love your quilt. Very pretty. Hugs, xx

  3. That's looking like an interesting project

  4. I love the bright colors. And I love how you put those corner blocks in....they actually draw the eye to your flying geese!

  5. Sorry your thread broke--that is one thing I think we all hate--esp when it takes so long to get it right again so you could continue--
    love how bright and cheery you new quilt is--
    great job--
    luv, di

  6. Overlockers are just wonderful... except when threads break!!! well done with getting a new cover done and I just love how your quilt for you is coming together....

  7. Your overlocker gave you a bit of grief didn't it!! Good you had the calm time 😁😁
    I love your quilt, very colourful, love the owls.

  8. Love your border of flying geese and the circle corner blocks, looks fantastic. Those overlockers are not fun when you need to rethread are they?

  9. I LoVe it... it's so bright & cheerful.
    Such a nuisance when thread breaks on an overlocker, but ending with new cover is worth all the trouble I'm sure.
    Thanks for joining in FnWf again too.
    The new header is really nice too...xox

  10. So pleased to hear you kept your words calm
    Looks like another nice quilt in the making and nice to make one for yourself

  11. Very pretty quilt. Sorry about the threading challenges.

  12. What a bright and happy quilt.

  13. Hi Maria glad you got your new dryer cover done,it is a buggar when you have to fully thread the o/ locker,I love your colourful blocks ,well done my friend xx

  14. Your quilt is looking gorgeous Maria. xx

  15. Your owls and flowers are so pretty. YOu chose great borders for it!

  16. Don't you love that No 4 thread? It's always the one that causes the most trouble. Your owl quilt is looking so terrific - great border fabric.

  17. I have the same problem. I also spend more time on threading no 4 than I care to remember. Out with the DVD, you-tube and written notes every time. Your fun sewing looks great.

  18. What a cute quilt! I know nothing about overlockers, so I'll take your word for it. Just keep on stitching. We've accomplished a lot during quarantine, but I'm sure ready for the next step.....
