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!

Hugs Sandra

LOL! There's no lack of projects at your house! I admire anyone who makes garments or costumes. I would run screaming if anyone asked me to do that. Have fun!!

Oh my - I ADORE your scrappy quilt top! I love MoMo - I spy some 'Oh Deer!'! Wait - have you used Oh Deer! for the entire quilt top? Or are there other fabrics in there as well?
