FNSI and RSC!

First of all Friday Night Sew In and many thanks to Wendy for getting us together again, good to sew along with friends. You can see what everyone was working on here.

I felt it time to get my RSC dark blues finished up and made six crumb blocks to add to my collection along with my little dresdens and a couple of scraptherapy blocks. So this month this


turned into this.


I am linking up with Angela here for Scrap Happy Saturday.

The rest of my Friday was spent quilting my tablecloth - the cooler weather has been a bonus as far as quilting is concerned but now that the weather is warming up again I suspect that I shall be working on my Field Journal hexagons.

In other news, this week I finished my watercolour still life.


I really am not happy with the background but it is my second attempt and the paper will not take any more fidling I am sure, so it it is as it is. Very happy with everything else though.

Many thanks to Wendy and Angela.


Have a good week.

  4. Your painting is lovely. I like the way you have finished the table surface, it must have taken a lot of patience.
    Lovely blue blocks too.

  5. I think your watercolour has turned out well. Can you analyse what makes you unhappy about the background (sometimes I can't, with my own)? You might also find that you can do more to the background if you use watercolour pencils or watercolour crayon..

  7. Lin, it’s great to see your small scrap pile turned into little blocks and wonderful hexies! Ha, I know about working the paper to death. You might not like the background, but everything in front of it is stealing the show anyway. I can’t even imagine painting lace let alone it coming out looking like lace. Your lace is painting is awesome. Everything in your painting is done quite well.
