FNSI

   
Chocolate at the ready for my nights stitching..... did I get as much done as I thought I would 

........no...... but what else is new.


 I began here with this mess and hoped I might get  heaps done..... dreamer.....


 I managed to cut some fabric for piecing and do the last of the heart applique so that was good.


                                 Still got a mess to work on though.


I also put this table runner together but naturally I stuffed that up and you can probably see where, I was shown a longgggggg time ago how to do this and get the pattern matching properly but I have forgotten exactly what to do so this will just have to do for now, its for my table on the patio so if I put enough Christmas decorations on it then then my secret will be safe except for everyone who looks at my blog.


Of course the left over pieces don't match either but you must promise you won't tell anyone.......


Well that's my lot for the FNSI so I'm off now to check how all the other ladies went with their sewing.

       Thanks again to Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts for organising this fun night.

Always plenty of mess to clean up here too Helen, you are not alone.
I didn't get much done either although you got much more than me finished. Hugs.....

It's amazing how long it takes to sort out things to set to work... I had a hard look to find where you stuffed up but I couldn't find it! They look fantastic

Your runners look great - we are our own worst critics. You can always say its artistic interpretation!
or - as you say - cover it!

The quilt is looking great, I'm wish I had done this one. Love the runner anyway.

Love the table runner, I always overestimate what I can get done by at least 3 or 4 times!
