Great weekend with Mum FEb2016

Had a wonderful extended weekend with Mum. Friday to Monday, with sewing, chatting & shopping all rolled into one visite.
Mum came on Friday just in time to sit & sew together for FnwFs in my craft room.

Not a lot of sewing got done, I was on a mission hunting for missing blinding, which in turn meant cleaning up my stash of fabric. Mission was completed, binding found ready to complete next UFO project. It was worth all the cleaning to find it!

Next day off we went to Pinjarra to catch up with quilting friends. Great day to stay inside and stitch as the heat wave scorched very thing out side. We are now in our 4th day over 40degC!!

Saturday I got some great news that a friend had given birth to a baby girl. Finally a pink one after 4 tries.....brave lady. So Mum & I decided that she would need a new PINK quilt! No blue aloud.

After finding some very pink fabric from the stash & a pattern I hadn't tried we were off to find fabrics to complete the quilt. Love shopping on a Sunday! 

Thanks to Mum for helping pick the colours, calculating quanities & arranging the beautiful quilt.

I think it will be call Pink Baby Bunting. What do you think so far?

Bye for now, Hugz Sandra

2016 FNSI

Thanks to all the lovely ladies for joining in the first FNSI for 2016.
I was away down south visiting an old friend & had disconnected my self from my iPad for the weekend. Such a nice thing to do once & a while. 
As we sat side by side on her couch chatting I still got a little stitching done on my ongoing Scandivain Chirstmas stitchery.

Hope you all are having a good start to the year.

December FNSI

Thanks to Wendy and all the ladies that joined in on the last FNSI for the year.
I found it a little hard to find my way into the craft room last night! 
Already feels like time to sit and relax.
With some last minute Christmas finishes I finally found my in & put the binding on a table running which is for my Christmas table. 
Just need to sit and do the hand sewing.
A couple of weeks ago Mum was here and put together another one of my blocks for my Scandinavian Christmas wall hanging. I also did a little stitching on that. 
I wish all the blogging ladies a wonderfull Christmas & I will look forward to seeing all the beautiful things people make in the New Year.

Sweet treat for a Little one

Last Friday night I started a little project for a friends baby girl.
Once I had got my colours sorted & purchased it went together quite easily.

The pattern by Elizabeth Hartman - Charm Squares Baby Quilt finished size 33"x40".
The quilt colours were based on the linen bicycle & poco dot fabric (found in stash) then added the soft pink linen which was hand quilted, with the orange bunting fabric. Odd but just fitted so well!
Also the pink tone on tone, purple tone on tone & the purple/pink birds which I found in my stash.
Turned out a good little stash quilt!
Then for a finishing touch I rounded the corners & hand made label.
Turned out sweet! 

Have some left overs I think I will turn into a quilt of love. Started
Enjoy the weekend.

November FNSI

Surprise did you think you would get Maria's Blog "Life on the Block".
Try the next one down on Wendy's list.

This is Sandra WA "Playing Tiddleywinks" LOL

Welcome to all that enjoyed FNSI. 
For the first time I had planned to come into the craft room and just potter. 
Clean up, quilt a UFO what ever tickled my fancy.
Then on Tuesday there was an unexpected arrival of a baby girl into the world for a old friend. 
Due in Dec.
So I ended up going through my stash and finding something to make a quilt for the little one.

I have had this great linen fabric with bicycles on it tucked away for just this occasion.
Started laying out fabrics & found there was not enough to finish off, will need to go shopping No!!
So then I moved onto my Scandie Christmas wall hanging.
Getting there, boarders next.
Thanks to Wendy for getting us together & working on projects all around the world.
Enjoy your sewing. Sandra

Dancing out the Door

After many months of speculation, deliberation, procrastination (very good at this one) & frustration.
The 2015 Jazz dance costume are finished. All 15 of them!!
Last night I took the costumes to practice & the girls had there final fitting. With only a few small alternations today my house can be free of bright pink Lycra. YES!!
There may still be some hair piece decorations to do. Theses are easy as they do not have to fit different body shapes & sizes.
Can't wait to see them on stage in December.
