                       Well I'm back to report on my FNWF sewing.

 Yes I can hear you ask..... why on earth has she put a photo of a blank wall with hooks in it.......its in anticipation of the "Fernhill" button BOM quilt by Lynette Anderson that is ear marked for this spot. I should have been stitching it when it began last year but of course that didn't happen and my "Tis the Season" Christmas quilt stayed there all of 2012 so this year I have removed it and I'm leaving the space empty as I know it will annoy me and keep me motivated to finish.



                                        Here is the first block in readiness for FNWF.



My other project is another  Lynette Anderson "Crazy Christmas" that I bought a long time ago..... no I'm not saying how long trust me thought it was a long long time, I will have this finished for this Christmas.



This is the progress I made on Friday night, doesn't look much really but that's all I got done.


As you can see here ..... no progress was made on this one at all...... why you ask ?
Well I decided to use a few different colour threads than the ones used in the pattern so I always take longer to choose fabrics and thread colours so that took about 1 1/2 hrs and got me no where so I gave that away and got on with the above stitchery.


I was a bit disappointed with my nights work but some work is better than none I guess.

I have been checking out the other blogs to see how others went on the night and there is some great crafting going on, well done girls.

Helen - I love the idea of the blank wall just waiting - that is great motivation - as you say.

I always say a bit is better than nothing and it will grow each night.

A little bit of stitching is better than no stitching at all!

Theresa said...

What you did get done looks great!

I do like your Santa progress. Very cute. It does take so much time matching threads and fabrics, but if you achieved some of that it is still progress.

Love Santa's sleigh, and you've really cheered me up because it takes me ages too.

I'm still scratching my bonce and thinking about things when everyone else has just about finished.
