Friday Night Sew In for Aug 2020

 REALLY  the third Friday of Aug already ?????  Where oh where have the days gone but one nice thing is it's time to sit and stitch with the lovely Wendy for FNSI . 

First I sewed the backing for the Trail Mix together and then I decided to start on my next scrappy project " Fabric Fusion"...







I've cut and saved the blocks for a longgggg time and as you can see counted as I went along until I finally had all the bits required...








First I cut the 1" strips ready to sew onto the 2" X 3 1/2" pieces 










after pressing I  pinned the 5 1/2" X 3 1/2" together ready to sew.


Then it was time to make a cuppa and get some hand sewing out as one of my favorite movies was on "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"

I sat and stitched one of the free Christmas blocks from " Love and Hugs " on Facebook.

Thank you Wendy  for another lovely evening of sewing along with your and the ladies...
 
Must away and get ready to have lunch with my friend in town.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe weekend.

Hugs  Maria ❤

  6. I'm excited to see what your new scrappy project will look like! I've seen the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel a couple of times and will watch it again when it is on TV. Wonderful actors! Hand stitching or knitting go so well with TV.

  18. Backing done? You will have Trail Mix on the complete finish list in no time. I am slowly quilting mine.

    I guess you may as well do more than one scrappy project at once. I am anxious to see how the new one turns out!
