April FNSI

My computer is at the doctors sew I have pulled out my old laptop to post what I did for FNSI with Wendy and 22 other ladies.....

Do you remember when I visited my DD in the Big Smoke a few weeks ago I rescued a bag of lovely scraps !

Well apart from the Scrappy Quilt I am putting together I found these Quilts of Love she had started.
Sew last night I finished making these...





Such tiny little Quilts for very special little ones...

Thank you Wendy for another great night of stitching.. Look forward to seeing what others have made HERE over the next few days...

Happy Stitching

FnwFs for April....

Even though the lovely Cheryll is away sailing the seas she is still nice enough to put up a Linky for us to sew-a-long with our blogging friends...Thanks Cheryll I hope you are having a great time....

I got an early start working on my Scrappy Quilt and framing the SS Blocks...


Doing lots of " cutting"

























"chain piecing"


"ironing"
























and pinning ready to sew.


I am making some progress but thought I'd be further along



Seven SS Blocks Framed three more to go and then sewn together..                         


First row of Scrappy Quilt...



I'll sew-a-long tonight with my friends from the Northern Hemisphere and hope to get a lot more done..

Look forward to seeing what everyone has been doing over the next few days..

Happy Stitching

Nice Mail and Shopping....

I was delighted this week to receive my lovely fabrics I had ordered in the mail.....


Now I need to decide which one of Toni's lovely patterns from the The Red Boot Quilt Company I want to make first.....
















Hubby and I had a few days in the Big Smoke and I had fun going fabric shopping with my DD...
















Some great backings and the sashing for my SS Blocks at a bargain price....


While there DD was going to throw out these scraps sew I rescued them...


















My DD told me I was only allowed to take them home if I used them straight away. Sew this is what I've been doing  ( the bigger pieces I have put aside for later)



Still need to cut more to have enough for the quilt but I'm sure I have plenty of scraps to use....LOL.


















What have you been making this week?

Happy Stitching

FNSI + Saturday

For FNSI with Wendy  I managed to get the binding done on my Layered Cake quilt





















and finish the stitchery on the front of the Scissors keep



as well as the inside and sew the two pieces together.

















Then today I fitted the zipper, that's something I am not good at or enjoy.


but it's done..

































and I am happy with my flash Lynette Anderson's Scissors Keep....











Thanks Wendy for another weekend of sewing along with you and the other ladies.. Will enjoy visiting others HERE over the next few days...

Happy Stitching
