FNSI - Show and tell

FNSI came around so quickly again ;-)

I had a lunch date with a friend in the City today - our usual place Cafe Amore, but I think we had a new waiter, as when I asked for a glass of Hugo, Unwooded Chardonnay, he came to the table with a glass of red!  Then, as he was clearing the plates away, I asked for another glass of wine .... 15 minutes later he came back and asked if I still wanted the wine ........ I had to say no, as my friend had to go back to work ;-(

Anyway, I just missed the rain on the way home and could spend the afternoon in the sewing room.

I made up a pinwheel block for Susan, for Block Swap Adventure

Pinwheel Block

Susan's colour preferences were Aqua, red, pink, white and whilst she provided several block choices, I chose the Pinwheel block as I had never made this particular block before. I must say, I enjoyed the way it came together, very quick and easy ;-)

I managed to finish off two more HST BOM blocks.  I am using Sassy by Sandy Gervais and am very pleased with how it is turning out.

Block #3

HST BOM Block 4
Block #4

Block #5

Block #6

I even made up a few more loyalty card holders - have fine tuned the pattern I have used previously ;-)  but I can't show you just yet, coz they are for pressies ;-)

Time was spent sorting Christmas fabrics ready for my usual monthly block swap and for the Christmas in July Mug Rug Swap - hopefully I will get some more sewing done over the weekend.

Glad to have been able to cross off a few more things on the To Do List ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.

  1. I love the fabric you used in the pinwheel, what is that one called - its certainly my style

  2. Shame about your glass of wine... but still a good time spent with a friend!
    NiCe block too! :)

  3. Wonderful blocks Cathy. Beautiful fabrics in the pinwheel block. Also love how changing what colours you put in the second block how different it looks.

  4. Wow your piecing is so accurate, that pinwheel block is just lovely.

  5. Love all those blocks Cathy....they look amazing!!! Must've been the waiter's first day???....or if not, maybe his last!!!!
