FNSI

We have finally got some rain here and it was a nice cool evening to spend in the "Cave" with Wendy  and friends to work on my projects...


Toni's Foxes have been sandwiched and sew I worked on stitching around them all
  


and when my hands and shoulders needed a rest I traced Toni's next project onto Vliesofix 























and cut them out....




Thank you Wendy for organising another lovely FNSIs . I look forward to seeing what the other ladies worked on by going over HERE..

Happy Stitching

Lots of Photos and FNSI..

Where have the past 12 days gone ???? Each day I plan to sit down and write a post but it just doesn't happen . Sew I'll show some of the things that have keep me busy....

Making "pinwheels" for the Foxy quilt by Toni from Red Boot Company



I've been painting the a small section of the green eves most days....


slowly getting done !! Then I need to attack the yellow....




Went to town last Thursday to have my car serviced and into Spotlight to buy a zip for a secret project..





Don't know how that fabric got into my bag, could have something to do with it being on special. :)  The spot only $4 a miter, Dinosaurs $2 and the Polar Fleece 40% of normal price....



also bought a new bucket to use when I wash

















            "Charlie"




Saturday  the Geraldton Patchwork Ladies invited clubs from surrounding areas for their annual "Mother's Luncheon" ... Was a lovely afternoon with lots of food chatting and show and tell..



Was great to see the groups quilt display and the finished " La Province quilts...." by Bonnie Hunter hanging together.

Monday was a trip to the Vets as poor Lacy ripped her claw chasing the ball...














It's all better now and shes running again but we'er not throwing the ball for awhile.... (too expensive)



I managed to finish the pinwheels and sew them onto the quilt and then I discovered I didn't have enough backing ... Oh No! not another 170 km round trip to Geraldton  so I asked DH would he drive me in. I did buy him a nice coffee and cake.  :)

Foxy Backing.....

Ah!!!!!












Well they were $4 a mtr......




on way home I went to the post office there was a parcel from Craft Depot....


Love stripes for binding and thought the top one will be perfect for my Foxy Quilt and I needed the cotton and pen....

Now if you stayed long enough to read to here don't forget to sign up for our fun night sewing with lovely  Wendy  ...................I'm sure I can find something to sew along with you all....

Happy Stitching

and then started a NEW project.....
