Getting back into it!

Hi all long time again between posts.
All sorts of fun was had in the holidays, now it is time to get organizised.

The house is now in order with squids at school & myself back at work Nooooo!
It means thought has to be put into what needs to be done & what time is left to do what I would like to do. Sew, stitch and creat.

Over the holidays I worked on getting UFO's finished and also starting new projects like this one?

This is my first Disappearing 9 patch. It looks good so far.
All the colours were pick out from the patch with the flags on. Something nice and bright I think. What you think bloggy land?

Off to get ready for Bruce Springsteen concert.

December 2013 FNSI

Hotel Sandra in full swing for the holidays
Having 7 different visitors in 10 days
With visitors from down south in the house,
I didn't think that I would get much done this FNSI!
That was before starting Southern Friends Christmas present.

Many months ago when Southern Friend visited she hinted that place mats 
would be something she would like.

Forgetting this until last Thursday
Rushed off & brought some nice fabric and started the job
Nothing like a dead line to get something done!!

We both enjoy each others company and good food.
After dinner and home made pavlova (made by Squid 1 and her BFF )
Boys loaded the dishwasher and 
We retired to the craft room  to drinking wine, chat while I created.
This is what I finished last night.
4 - Place Mats 12" x 18"

Very bright & she loved them.
Wasn't allowed to wrap them no point going home straight on the table.

What do you think?

Merry Christmas
Wishing All a great time.

FNSI 18th October

Wow FNSI again!
It always comes around when I really need to sit down and get stuck
into something I need to finish.
This time the dead line for those dance costumes is fast approching.
Well this is what I have done so far.
Cut out the 18 leotards, sew the bodies togehter and work on the trim that goes around the neck line.

I will be happy when all 18 look like I need to work out how the skirt is going to look!

Off to do some fun sewing (quilting) and work on some blocks. Will sew with the Northen Hemispare ladies for little while :-)

Bye for now Sandra
