FNSI

 well... ADSI (All Day Sew In) to be honest!

Some more work done on this little quilting project.... thought I would show you this picture against the inches on the tape measure to get an idea of the scale... I think it takes longer doing the mini than a big quilt...


I just love, love, love doing it... get completely lost for hours.... 

I made up some more bottles of my lovely Magic Cleaner....  it's important to write clear labels.... don't want beloved drinking magic cleaner!!  It is so economical and works so well and smells nice (if you like eucalyptus smell!)




I had a lovely day doing my mini quilting and was already for FNSI when I got an impromptu invitation to supper at a pub... as if I'm going to refuse a free feed!!! - especially since I was so lost in my quilting I hadn't eaten all day!

So once my belly was nice and full ......

(I had chicken breast filled with pesto and camembert on a bed of mashed sweet potato - I thought you might be interested......) 

...... I sorted out some blues for the remaining blocks of my North Pole quilt....


I just love this one which I had a long thing piece of for the top of the quilt ... just perfect for Santa flying over...


... then I put on my funky slippers and flannel pj's and sat to watch the cricket with my redwork stitching


I got the birds tail done!

Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm going to prepare the North Pole blocks ....
