FNSI results.....

Sometimes plans don't actually happen... and that was my story last evening... but I still sewed... but not what I planned...

I did carry on with the preparation for the next set of Nature's Journey blocks by sewing 1 1/2 inch squares together....

All the blocks are all ready now for the hand sewing.... I'll get some done this weekend....


Sweetpea quilt was whispering for attention so I put corners on the snowball patch blocks that are stitched with bears.....


... I just couldn't throw the corners away so I sewed two lots of seams and now have the snippets to play with....


... trimmed they make lovely little 1 1/2" HST's.... 

(I predict a mini quilt in my future)


I even sewed some blocks together and pinned these onto my flannel sheet....

...  loving the look....


I will HAVE to shop when this part is done... I think it will definitely benefit from borders.....

Hubz was out of town so I had a marathon catch up of Miss Fisher's Murder Misteries and these alphabet blocks were finished....

U for Umbrella..... and Understanding the need to stitch....


and P for Pansy... and Perfume.... and Perfectly fun....


Righto, Gotto Go... no sewing tonight.....


A friend has asked me to go with her to this..... I have no idea about Country Rock but I'm sure I will have a lot of fun... they look like fun blokes......

you have been busy, love that quilt, it's coming together nicely

Jennifer said...

They do look like fun blokes indeed! Yes, your sweet pea quilt will look gorgeous with a border, it need a frame. I made a quilt once from my leftover sewn-together triangles......it's probably the prettiest quilt I have ever made.

Oh I am soooo jealous ... love the Wolfe Brothers!
Your fabrics in the tiny squares are gorgeous and those little HST will make a lovely mini :)

marina said...

love those little blocks with the circles and your alphabet stitcheries look amazing in that setting.
Great to see the 'big picture'. Those little hst's will make a very pretty mini. I kept mine from my basket blocks.
Just couldn't waste those pretty little scraps.
enjoy your night out

lots of beautiful stitches happening there Fiona. The Wolfe Brothers were the runners-up on Australia's Got Talent in 2012 - they were a very popular act on the show, as I recall. I'd love to know what you thought of them

Love the colours used in the circles-- are they French General?. The bear stitcheries are cute and so neat.

Sewing friends are wonderful! I don't have any here in the small town where I live, so I connect virtually with quilters through my blog and Instagram. It's great to have so many like-minded friends, even if I've never actually met any of them!

Hey Fiona,
I drug my feet the first half of the month on the Nature's Journey blocks but I'm happy to say I'm in the home stretch...I need to do as you do and work on something else occasionally as I get rather bored with the one project. Still loving the Alphabet Bears.
Mama Bear

Susan said...

your alphabet bears look wonderful with the purples & greens.
