FNSI and more.....


Thank you Wendy for hosting FNSI last night....  I took out Flowerville to work on.....

Here it is at the start....


… and this is how I ended the evening.... (I'm a slow stitcher… this was a few hours work)


… well not quite as I wanted to quickly finish this postcard.... I just had one long side of border to stitch....


This is my first stitchery for this years No Fuss Stitchalong 


During the week I take 'smoko' breaks from my quilting work and usually spend it sewing for me....

I had some help from my animal friends to glue down ric-rac onto my stitchery.... 


…. and another day I sewed it all together.....

… my new peg bag/apron....


 Made with a dishtowel folded up and then added on the  black webbing....


This is the sad bag it is replacing..... 


…. it wasn't always sad... I found a picture of it when it was brand new and happy....


Righto, Gotto Go..... I want to arrange my Granny Squares this weekend.... so that I can have them in nice piles to add sashing next week....

… but first I will be off HERE to see what the other FNSI'ers got up to....

Lucky to have those cute little animal friends to help.
Gosh, that peg bag had a very hard working life.
Now the pretty young one takes over.

Susan said...

Lots of happy sewing!!!

Maria said...

I'm a slow stitchers too sew you did well. Great to have your first Postcard done....
How cute are your animal clips and they did a good job of holding the ric rac.
The new Peg Apron is pretty and I think the old Peg Bag deserves to be retired......

Jennifer said...

Great job on the new peg bag apron.......you will be the smartest person at the clothesline! Very cute little clips, where did you get them? Your Friday night stitching is very pretty and it coming along nicely, even if not quite as speedily as you had hoped.

Your PEG bag has given great service! Love the apron. Great first postcard!! Flowerville is going to be beautiful with that thread....slow stitching is very nice xxx

Jeanette said...

Love your apron. The little animal clips are so cute. Hugs, xx

Janice said...

You’ve done well with your multi tasking. Good progress on all. I can’t believe how the sun has faded the old peg bag. Definitely time for a refresh.

Jane Galley said...

Such teeny, tiny stitches! I'm sure your pegs will appreciate their new home :)

You got a lot of stitchery done. Your new peg bag is great. I like the animals.

You got quite a bit of stitching done. So much more than the couple of letters I stitched! I love your peg bag.

Your pegs will love their new "home".

Karen S said...

Lovely stitching all round and a great finish to your peg bag.
Great comparison photos of the old one. Amazing how much it can fade.

Chrissie said...

What cute little animal pegs, whilst your old peg bag certainly had seen some service, your new one looks really smart and I love the stitchery. I also love the varigated colours on your Flowerville. Hope you got the chance to arrange your granny squares xcx

Narelle said...

I'd say you made great progress :)
Your peg bag is lovely and very clever ... your old one deserves a rest in the shade.

First of all - oh my goodness - when you showed your old peg bag the other day, I thought it was a vintage styled one - wouldn't have believed that it was that colourful! Well done on the new one - it's lovely. Good stitching done too.....those postcard blocks are cute and I love your FLowerville :-)

Happy Stitching

Wow - that sad bag had really changed over the years. I guess I stitch slow too, it would take me several hours to complete the same amount. Love the granny square quilt - it's just perfect.
