FNSI September

Wow time is ticking away fast with dance costumes on the table.
Thanks to all the ladies for joining in & sewing around the world.

I spent most of the weekend cutting out costumes.

Found sometime to work on my Nailbinding socks. Only need to finish above the ankle.

Hope you had a nice Friday Night

FNSI August

Where does time go in my house!!
Here we are for FNSI August. Hope you enjoyed your evening all.

I am up to my eye balls with pink Lycra & pattern making....don't like this part of making costumes!
Getting the sizing right for each girl is tricky. Here is the progress so far.
To avoid the Lycra I tend to do other projects......always one or two on the go in the craft room.
So I finished off the backing on the scrappy quilt. Ready to be sandwich.

The worked on some Nailbinding. This is a dark age knitting/crocheting style done with a single needle.
Making some socks for myself. That is a rare thing!

FNSI August

Hi Ladies,
Hope you had a productive FNSI. Thanks to all for joining in. 
Sorry for my late post as I as away this weekend at a Medieval weekend South of Perth in A little town called Balingup.

Other than finishing off some hand sewing on my veil not much was achieved on Friday Night.
Bad selfie!!
When I returned home on Sunday I spent some time working on latest scrappy quilt, to relax! 
It is a nice cot size quilt. 
No rest for the is now dance costume season!! That's right Mum I did it again.
This will be my 10th year making costumes for my daughters dance class. Thank goodness there are only 15 girls this year.
That is a nice deep pink.
Watch this place hugs Sandra

FnWF August

Thanks to all joining in on FnWF.

At the beginning of the night I continued to put some little 2.5" blocks together.
The material is the scrap from my last quilt, the herringbone block on brown back ground.
There was just so many pieces left I had to do some thing with it.

It will turn into a little baby quilt I think.
After that a couple of friends popped over for a cuppa and some needle work.

Hope you all had a good evening. 
Hugs Sandra

Finishes & Gifts

With the binding done, quilt washed and given to the Birthday girl, another quilt done.
Here is the end product! 

Quilt made using "Oh Deer" fabric range from Moda. 
Enjoyed doing the herring bone block. First time using this block.
This was an old technic used by the vikings in there weaving, as this was going to an reanactment friend it was really appropriate.

I would like to say a big thank you to Cheryll from Gone Stitchen for my lovely prize as the winner of FnWF. 

Off for a walk with the kids before they head back to school tomorrow.
Hugs Sandra


Last night after going out for dinner with Squid1 & friends. A very nice evening.
It was time to do some sewing for FNSI. Thanks to all the ladies joining in.

Frist I finished heming new curtains for Squid1 room.
Then it was onto another hated job.....pinning a quilt!! The quilt has been sandwiched on the floor for the past week. My knees have talked me out of getting it done each day. 
So DH came up with a solution for crawling around on the hard floor to get it pinned & done.

Today I had the time to get into the quilting......only one more step to go.

Hope you all had a great night.
