August FNSI......

Thank you Cheryl for hosting FNWF....


....where heaps of us gather in our PJ's, with our chocolate and stitching ....

... I didn't turn up....

...... well, you see we got invited out and I ate eye fillet and passionfruit eton mess instead .....

..... and when I got home I was tired and went to bed....

but earlier this week I made these two pieced butterflies (these are 6" blocks)


they are for a community quilt which will have a bunch of these in it.... they are pretty cute but I don't think I want to make too many of them.... fiddle, fiddle....

I did sew on Friday.... with Kris ... but during the day (I wonder if that counts?)


... these are for the August SAL project....

... for those not doing it they are 2 1/2" squares.....

..... pretty cute....

..... more fiddle, fiddle.....

..... I think I will do more of these ....

Righto, Gotto Go..... we have the weekend to enjoy.....
