It was a special FNSI as I was able to spend some time doing hand sewing while also joining Chooky for a ZOOM meeting.....  in the afternoon.

I did some hand sewing and completed one of the La Passacagila Blocks..

Later in the evening I worked on Franken batting  that.

I needed to get two quilts ready to take to the quilter ... 

Thanks  Wendy  and  Chooky  for a fun Friday afternoon and evening...

Must away and put on the kettle for a nice Milo...

Happy Stitching

FnwFs and RSC for August

Even though Cheryll away on holidays she still gets us together for FnwFs and I decided to go through my stash and get out some yellows for Angela's RSC . 

My "I Spy" Block.....

Not happy with the colour of the photo. I took lots, even waited to do the post till this morning so I could take some photos outside. Still not the right colour yellow. Will have to do.

Also made the smaller 3 1/2" X 5 1/2" blocks .

Must away and organise some things to go into my project box for retreat.

Happy Stitching 

Hugs  Maria ❤

It's Done!

Finally my Mystery Laundry Basket quilt is done .. I stared cutting and piecing all the blocks in 2022 and got the top made and ready to be delivered to Sandy to be quilted .
I decided to do the hand applique on the borders after it was quilted as the fabric seemed to fray a lot.
First I had to make the vines, leaves, big and small circles before I could start stitching ... Many hours of sewing it is now FINISHED.

So happy to have this quilted finished in plenty of time to hang at our Patch Groups Quilt Hanging in September.

Must away now to organise something to sew on Friday for FnwFs with Cheryll and friends.

Happy Stitching 

Hugs  Maria ❤
