FNSI February

 Friday was a lovely day here, if a tad windy! But at least it was dry and it has been good to have some warm sun around again this week.

I started my Friday afternoon with an hour working in my sketchbooks - sorry, no photos - and then went off walking with friends for the rest afternoon.

However, come the evening I got our my Red Manor House with the intention of finishing the quilting of this butterfly block.


But, a good film came on TV and in the end I had little to show for my evening. However this afternoon, two hours and one football match later, I have a completed block.

Many thanks to Wendy for organising our get together yesterday - pop over to Wendy's blog to see who else joined in and to see what they got up to.

In other news this week the centre Dresden for Wings and Pretty Things is now appliqued in place and has it's corona of dots applied too.


I am now on a hunt for some more of the fabric I have used as a background as it works perfectly with the pretty Rue 1800 fabrics.


If anyone has any tucked away in their stash then I would love to hear from you!

Right, I need to catch up with what everyone was doing yesterday - have a good week.

I love your butterfly block. It is very pretty and your quilting is exquisite but that Dresden plate block steals the show. Wow! It's gorgeous! Good luck in locating more of the fabric you need. ;^)

I love your appliques. I am thinking I might have to come up with an applique project so I can have a handwork project. Thanks for sharing photos. What method do you use for your applique, i.e. needle turn, etc.?

I've been doing crochet while we watch the T-10 cricket, but like you, if I was enjoying a film, I would probably stop stitching and not get much done!
