FNSI for October and retreat

I’m hoping this post works as I’ve been without internet , apparently my Modem is too old so waiting for a new one. Just hotspotting on my phone…..

Had a great time away in Perth visiting family before going to retreat. On Friday night I enjoyed sewing along with Wendy and ladies for FNSI and made two pillow cases for “ Kids in Oncology “ 

For the rest of the weekend I completed a table runner from the left overs of “Chain Links” 

Put my “I Spy “ RSC blocks together .
Sorry forgot to take photo. 

And also completely put together this cute Baby Quilt .

And since I got home I’ve finally made my “Aussie Hero” blocks for October.

Okay Must away now and press publish fingers crossed 🤞.

Happy Stitching ,

Hugs. Maria 💖

week has flown by and I've been busy sorting projects to take to retreat next week.

but I did sit and do some hand sewing in the evenings and got another La Passacaglia block done.
and in the middle of the mess on the table I got another block ready to pop in the retreat box as well as cut out four pillowcases for    "Pillowcases for Oncology Kids" 

Today I FINALLY threaded the overlocker to finish off these four boys ones . Now to cut out some for girls...

Must away now and have a cuppa.

Happy stitching ,

Hugs Maria ❤

FnwFs for October 2023

I enjoy my FnwFs as I always get organised and get things done.   After our Quilt Hanging  I put together a Churn Dash Lap quilt which I've made for a friend's special "0" BD and took it to my longarm quilter . It was delivered to me on Thursday so yesterday I prepared the bindings for it and also for a baby quilt,


then I quilted the simple fence and rail baby quilt by cross hatching in a serpintine stitch.

After dinner I sewed the binding on the "Churn Dash" 


and the Baby Quilt

A big thank you to Cheryll for getting us together as I had a great afternoon and evening sewing along with my virtual friend. Don't forget to pop over HERE to see what others have done....

Must away now and get ready for croquet...

Happy stitching 

Hugs  Maria ❤
