FNSI show and tell and .....

............ scream!

I was so looking forward to my FNSI - I had several tasks in mind ;-)

However, I only completed one ;-(

I spent a large part of my time picking fabric and cutting ready for my Block Swap Adventure partner's block - the Lattice Square

you know what's coming don't you .......... measure twice, cut once!


first lot of fabrics, I realised half way that I didn't have enough for what I wanted to do, then I don't know what happened, but I mucked up and cut all of the squares 1/4" smaller than needed!


I eventually finished the block with my third choices of fabric ;-(

Something did make me happy though  ................ 
I received some more goodies for my Santa Sack from Fiona
 

This morning we have had a new television delivered, so I am currently on 'apprentice' duty with the husband  setting up the stand and putting it on the lowline entertainment unit - glad I had my Weetbix for breakfast.
EDITED:  See post HERE for update on what happened with the television :(


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
