FNSI October....

Thanks again to Wendy for hosting FNSI .... all 49 of us.... good party....

The Friday evening group was meeting again so I went along to that.... a smaller group, some familiar faces and some new ones... it's a lovely time to gently chat and hear about each others lives and what is going on....

... and eat cake.... on pretty plates...with pretty forks...


I was doing some hand sewing on a secret project .....


... this is another side of the mouse pincushion... little hexagons.... 

Christine and I were making them together... sort of... pop over HERE and see hers which she made 2/3rds smaller... it's ultra cute and ultra pretty...

 

My pincushion sides are together now but it needs stuffing to be recognisable.... 

... and my blankie is finished.....


... it's soft, and light, and pretty .....


This is a native tree flowering in my garden at the moment... it is only about 2 metres tall and covered in blossom...


... close up of the bunches of flowers...


Righto, Gotto Go..... the weekend has caught up with me.... and that mouse pincushion needs stuffing...

Congratulations on the lovely blankie finish. Love the fussy cut hexagons. Can't wait to see that pincushion finished. So go on and stuff that thing! ;^)

The blanket is just in time for summer weather - perfect! I am sorry but I cannot "see" the mouse, so looking forward to seeing him stuffed!

That cake looks so yum....I want some...but I probably couldn't taste it anyway [I have a cold]. Can't wait to see the pincushion stuffed, love the little hexies. And that blanket - so pretty, Fiona, what a lovely creation. Pretty flowers on that tree - only 6 months to go here before we see that again!
