FNSI and OPAM plus WOOFA for November 2020

 I had an early start for FNSI with the lovely Wendy yesterday and finished the Spiky Rows that I have now joined together for "Urban Owls"  which is my WOOFA with Cheryll

Then after dinner I quilted the table runner that Anorina kindly shared on her BLOG for free and I have made as a gift for a friend that doesn't read my blog so I can show you.  


I will definitely be making some more of these as they are sew quick and easy to make...

As it was still early enough to do some more sewing I did some more secret stuff.

This is the only finish I can show you this month for OPAM with the wonderful KRIS who has keep me on track to make sure there is at least one finish each month.....  Thanks Kris..

A little quilt made for the PICU..  Do hope to get a boy one made soon to sent along with this one.

Must away as it's time to bring in the washing.....

Take care and stay safe..

It's been a strange week....

 Weather wise it's been crazy, some days nice enough to go for my morning dip but yesterday it rained and again this morning so the sea was to rough to go in... Hopefully tomorrow...

Sewing wise I have completed my Secret Sewing and popped it into the post ( will show you after the reveal )  . Then it was time to make some Shields for "Days for Girls"   

After sewing 30 Shields   


By sewing through  five layers , one being a hospital grade plastic,  it was time to service the machine and put in  new needle.

but I got sidetracked and started cleaning out my draws


I managed to do two 

but this one can wait....

Now I've cleaned the machine and filled some bobbins ready to start a new project....

Hope you are all keeping well and have some time to sew over the weekend...

Must away as it's time to go for a coffee...

Hugs Maria❤

FnwFs for Novermber and more.....

It's the first Friday of November ( already ) so it's lovely to join Cheryll and the ladies for a evening of stitching.....

I worked on some secret sewing after joining Marion and Steph from the "Quilter's Angel" for a Christmas Swap so can only show you a sneak peek....

Last weekend our Patch Group had a Stay at Home Retreat and while many of the ladies did a workshop for a Huge Tote 

All the happy ladies with their finished project....

I enjoyed finally putting together "Anderson's Farm " by Lynette Anderson...

It was one of my UFO challenges for Sunday Stitchers  and now I have done all on my list.

Will take it to be custom quilted...

One of the Patch ladies brought along the Dress up Doll walling hanging she made for her little GD. she has many outfits including her Princess dress . All have shoes and matching hair decorations.

Love her Christmas dress with the wombat's on and nice red shoes.

Her bathers ... and PJs plus many more,

fabulous Christmas gift, 
her little granddaughter will have so much fun dressing he dolly....

Must away as the washing machine is beeping at me,

Stay well everyone and enjoy some stitching ,

Hugs  Maria ❤
