Finishes for February and Prepping for Retreat.

Made a new beach bag ready for next year.

 My DD1 asked if I could make some new Mug Rugs for her and her hubby,


always fun to make a few smaller projects.

Was good to have a binding fabric in my stash to finish the RSC quilt from 2022 blocks.

Got the HST borders on the Laundry Basket quilt and delivered it to the longarm quilter.

I've also spent a lot of time getting projects ready to take to retreat this weekend.

Cutting the blocks for FQS Sewcialites 2 SAL

cutting, visoflexing and ironing blocks for Toni Alexander's " Who's at the Zoo".

and preped some EPP blocks for "La Passacaglia "
You can never have enough projects when going to retreat so I'll also put the long-term "Wedding Ring Quilt" in.


Must away now and publish this post before it's March.......

Happy Stitching

FNSI for February

Firstly I would like to apologise to all the lovely ladies who commented on my last post that I didn't answer. For some reason Blogger didn't send the comments through to my email. 😢 Hope it is fixed now.

Again the weeks have flown by and it is time to join Wendy for FNSI..... 


I did the quilting on one of last years RSC 

Because I started early I got it completely quilted even though I changed threads for each colour.

You can see the quilting better at the back...

Thank you Wendy for once again organising us for FNSI . 
Will enjoy catching up with others over the weekend to see what they made HERE

Must away and find a binding to suit the quilt.

HUGS  Maria ❤

FnwFs for Feb...

After a quick trip to the big smoke on Thursday we returned home at 7pm yesterday and it was HOT. 44 deg cel
First thing we did was crank up the Air Con and when it cooled down enough I joined Cheryll and friends for FnwFs.

Only managed to stitch the chimmey before I was too tired and went to bed.

So this morning after my dip I made this month's Aussie Hero Blocks 

Thanks Cheryll for once again organising us for FnwFs and you can see what others did HERE

Must away now and put on the kettle.

Hugs  Maria ❤

What's been happening at my Place.... and FnwFs Sign Up.

We've been having lots of very hot days so I'm enjoying my morning bob with my friends.

The water is just beautiful and a great way to start my day.

It was one of our bobbing friends BD so I was pleased to still have enough of this fabric left to pop on a tea towel for her gift.

More slow stitching has been happening since I left of HERE a month ago.

So many thread changes.

Now I remember why I have put this aside several times. 

and I did get all the HSTs done for all four borders .  

Also don't forget to pop over to Cheryll's Blog to sign up for FnwFs ...

Must away and pin on some borders..

Happy Stitching 

Hugs  Maria ❤
