FNSI for August


Many thanks Wendy for inviting us to join you again for a stitchy evening - see what everyone was working on here

Friday was a cooler day for us and so much of my time was spent in the garden. But I found an hour in the afternoon to start basting some shapes for my new applique project.


Fiddly small pieces! This project deserves a post of it's own so watch this space.

After an early fish and chip supper sitting outside a local bar we came home to watch another exciting T20 Blast match. Of course I had some sewing on the go too. I have started work on a new crazy block and this is how it looked at the beginning of the evening.


And here it is after I had added some silk and organza ribbon embellishments.


Lots more to do as I plan to pack this with embroidery, but I am enjoying this very much.

Enjoy your weekend.

I'm loving the looks of your applique, probably because I've been needing to start a new one myself! Your crazy quilting block really looks gorgeous too.

Your crazy quilt embroidery is always so inspiring! Lovely colors and stitch combinations. That looks quite peaceful, and it must be fun to watch it transform as you add the embellishments.

Happy stitching,
