I got an early start on our second FNSI and sewed sleeves onto a few quilts ready for our Quilt Hanging    

and later I cut and put together four more Minecraft Blocks
Thank you Wendy for an fun FNSI  .  Look forward to catching up with others to see what they did.

Must away as I'm running late for croquet...

Happy Stitching 

Hugs Maria  ❤

FNSI for July ( the 1st )

It's lovely to have two FNSI's this month with Wendy. and friends.. I had a fun time sewing some more "Minecraft " blocks for my GGS's quilt... 


They are easy to put together but I find it takes longer to decide on the fabrics and cut them....

Later in the evening I worked on some more of the slow applique stitching on the Laundry Basket border, last one. 
No pic as I'm sure you're tired of seeing it. 

As soon as all the hand sewing is done I'll be able to cut into my gorgeous FQ bundle of  the lasted range of Tilda fabrics I purchased from "Kitty Rose Cottage" FNSI's generous sponsor.

Maybe I'll be able to work on them for second FNSI  next week?

I must away now as it's time to find something for dinner.

Happy Stitching

Must away and make some more circles 

Happy Stitching

RSC for July , Catching Up.... and sign up for FnwFs.

I had promised myself I wouldn't do anything else until I'd finished quilting "Who's at the Zoo" BUT I got side tracked . Angela had posted that RED was the colour for July's RSC and as I'd put some reds aside I decided to make the blocks..... 

My "I Spy" Block and the 

6 = 3 1/2" X 5 1/2" ones

then I made a couple of beachy coasters 

and bowl cosies for a friend

After a long chat with my DD1 I was pleased to find out her GS1 ( my GGS ) loves Minecraft so what's an Oma to do but find a pattern and make a block or four.........Okay more for another day..

and in between I've been busy cutting and gluing more circles and leaves for the Laundry Basket.  

I have a little more sewing to do on the third border and then onto the last one. It's a slow process but I'm enjoying it......

So now I will finish "Who's at the Zoo" so I can join in with Cheryll and friends for FnwFs and maybe start on a new project???? do pop over HERE to join in.

Must away now and get dressed , I was having a PJ day, but need something at the shop.....

Happy Stitching
