FNSI October

 Many thanks to Wendy for organising our Friday get together again. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else was working on.

I started in the afternoon working on some secret stitching - here is a little glimpse. Ready now to move onto the next stage.


Then in the evening I worked on the quilting of my Red Manor House. The first section of this border is finished and I have now moved the hoop on to the next section. Here is the first section with is markings removed.


In other news I have completed my swap hexies for the month and they are somewhere in the postal system. Otherwise, the secret stitching has taken up most of my time this week.


We are having a few nice sunny days at the moment and it is good to get outside to rake a few leaves or just enjoy wandering round. I picked up lots of walnuts last weekend but had to throw at least half away as they had been infested or were just dried out or mouldy inside. The pomegranates are looking good though.


Have a good week.

Your hexie secret sewing is so pretty. It is always a joy to see a hexie or two. Your Red Manor House quilting is coming along nicely, too. Make the most of your days spent outside.

I love your secret stitching, it looks very pretty!
Terrible news about the walnuts! We haven’t been anywhere to find walnuts this year. There is one tree close by which didn’t have any walnuts beneath it but we thought it was just that others had picked them up, but thinking now there was no sign of shells either! Very worrying!
Nice to see the pomegranates, I’d never seen them growing before either!
Hugs,
