FNSI .... A Secret Project .....

For FNSI (hosted by Bobbie and Heidi) I worked on my OASS (Once A Season Swap)

- shhhhh... it's a secret....

the one I am making has lots of different things in it....

some writing

 some stitchery

 some applique...

some wool felt 

some piecing

some matching points

some quilting

some binding

a label...... (sorry a piece of sticky label fell on it)

It's not quite finished so I can't show you what it is!!!

I really don't like to swear... I had to do a bit of the 'M' word  .....

Hubz asked me in the nicest of way to fix his trousers for him.....

after which I needed a snack.... just to keep up my energy.........  coffee and walnut cake... my all time favourite 

.... I used this recipe....

Righto, Gotto Go.... some binding to finish off.... then I want to go visiting blogs and see what else was made...


  1. Can't wait to see what it is that you are creating for the swap and by the looks of a very successful FNSI. hugs

  10. Lovely sneak peeks. The cake looks so yummy. Hugs,

  11. I had an M job too last week, funny how we can sew buttons on owls and such . but it is bothersome to sew a button on a shirt.
    I will await the secret sewing with anticipation.

  12. Darn those sticky labels, they just get on everything, don't they? *G* That project looks amazing, sweetie, can't wait to see it! Oh ugh the "M" word....*shudder*

  13. Interesting.. oh I hate secrets, you are such a the way too much walnut cake will make you fat so I see it as my duty to take some off you :) Hugs

  14. Hello Fiona,

    You are like a politician showing us something but not really telling us the whole story.Enjoy that cake.

    Happy days.

  15. Looking forward to the unveiling of your mystery stitching .... clever you to be able to incorporate all your wonderful talents in one project ...

    hmmmm ... I may even pop in for some of your scrumptious cake ... and one of your wonderful coffee's .... (my car has been broken for awhile now .. but is all fixed now ... ) ...

  26. I know you can't show but it's so unfair not to be able to see all the wonderful things you've done. All except that yummy cake, of course!

  27. Secret stitching is the most fun type of stitching! The 'm' word is a swear word at my house too, what does he mean I love using my sewing machine? - not on that sort of sewing!!

  28. Talk about sneaky... I'm so tired just looking at all your little teasing photos... there's so much in it!!! Looks amazing.. love your snack too... he he..
