FNSI for November
Thank you once again Wendy for hosting a great evenings sewing.
I started in the afternoon with work on this little Amigurumi fish.
I am not enjoying doing these at all and will be glad when this one is finished!
My next pleasurable activity of the day was making my mincemeat ready for Christmas. A simple task of weighing and mixing with the delicious smells of spice and brandy.
Here it is ready for it's overnight soak - I put it all into jars this morning.
And so on to the evenings sewing and I was working on my Autumn crazy block.
Specifically I was adding the blackberries, leaves and flowers.
Not far to go on this one now and I am starting to think about sashing fabric to hold the blocks together.
You may have noticed a new button up there on the left of my blog. It is for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project for 2015 and I have committed to making an 8" crazy block a month next year! Well I do need a project to keep me focused. At the moment my plan is to base each block on a different colour or colour scheme for instance my first one will be black/grey/white. Other themes I am thinking of are pink and orange, purple with a hint of yellow and turquoise. Nothing to do with being my favourite colours of course!
Hope you all had a good evenings sewing.
