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.

Thanks Mum for a great day.

This is the progress so far. 
Happy sewing Hugs Sandra

Winter Solstice Time

Well at this time of the year one must renounce all other crafts and get on with some costuming!
Or be truthful and say it is only a week and a half until Mid Winters Banquet and I don't have a dress to wear....Opps to much quilting he he.
Finished one wall hanging.
And all blocks for X & + finished.

Here is the beginning of my dress, with an old one being sacrificed to make a pattern.
I had planned to hand sew this whole dress! That is not going to happen as this dress will have hand made fabric buttons and button holes!! Also need to start/finish a dress for Squid1. 

Squid1 dress started fitting tonight.
Off to pick kids up from school.

FnWF June

Thanks to Cheryl and all the ladies sewing on Friday night.

Just pottered around my craft room doing some finishers.
First I finished off another piñata block. Time for a new iron after it spat dirty water all over it.

Then some quilting & binding to finish off the wall hanging. Didn't quite get that finished.

Then I went back to my X &+ quilt & finished two of my blocks which I sorted out on FnWF in Apirl.
Time flies when you have craft to do!

Hope you all had a great night sewing, will pop over now & have a look.
Hugz Sandra
