FNwF November get together





Many thanks to Cheryll for organising our get together again - visit Cheryll's blog here to see what everyone was working on.

I started the afternoon with these two stitcheries that have been awaiting attention for a while now.


By the end of the afternoon (with some garden work in between!) I had these two mini flimsies.



They have both now been layered up and are waiting to be quilted.

In the evening, by the fire, I finished off these two swap flowers





and then I started to play with some knitting. I have long wanted to try some Domino knitting and recently came across a small project that I thought would be great for experimenting. Barbara of The Flashing Scissors showed some lovely Domino mittens on her blog - do go and have a look - and very kindly sent me the pattern. I did not get very far but I think I now have the hang of it. Anyway, here is my progress so far.





Well that was my Friday - I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else was working on. Have a great weekend.

Hi Lin... wow the knitting looks interesting; I don't knit at all, but I do find it so fun to watch what others create.
And the stitcheries are very sweet... the border fabric in the reds is just beautiful!

Love your stitcheries. I rather like Gail's designs. That knitting has me intrigued so I shall pop over to that link and see what it is all about.

Hi Lin I love both stitcheries, I myself am working on Jessie Chorley's Friendship quilt which is a stitcherie but I am not very good at them so it is a challenge. X:)

BEAUTIFUL stitching, Lin, and I love your book you made, that is just too pretty for words! I long to take up knitting again - was never very good at it but I'd love to try.
