FNSI Show and tell

FNSI - Mr Fixit was happy to watch the cricket, and I was happy to let him :)

I got a lot done :)
Double Wedding Ring-3
completed another 1 1/2 rings for my double wedding ring quilt - I am thinking this will make a really nice table runner on the extendible dining table  ............... not sure I am that motivated to make a queen-size quilt out of these :(

While I was merrily congratulating myself on finishing my January swaps in good time, see my post HERE .................. I completely forgot about my CraftMad Family Quilt and the do.Good Stitches Bee

Buckeye Beauty
So I got to work on my two blocks for CraftMad Family Quilt - this year we are going to swap blocks in Christmas fabrics :)

I started cutting out my do.Good Stitches Bee blocks, but realised halfway that I need some white solid, not white tone on tone, so back to the drawing board I go :(

I also spent some time tidying up during the week when it was really hot - I didn't want to do anything too strenuous, and I was bored with sitting watching the TV, so I just faffed around going inbetween the craft room and the sewing room - sorting this and that - eventually, I hope to get everything in some form of order :)

In my tidying up, I came across these - they are my very, very first attempt at making up log cabin blocks - back in 2010 - I didn't even have a quilting ruler or rotary cutter then .......... these were cut with scissors using my normal ruler as a guide.
My very first log cabins
They were all different measurements and quite crooked - so I added the pink outer border and cut them 'wonky'.  I think they are big enough to make a small doll blanket ............ need to think about this one a bit more - another thing to add to the UFO list.  Any suggestions?  What do you think it would be good for?

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.


  1. Great stitching. Your double wedding ring is brilliant

  2. Love the fabrics our Craftmad blocks...can't wait to see which one arrives in my mailbox. :-) Love those circles...brilliant.

  3. Great blocks - not sure I'm quite ready to tackle circles yet..

  4. Well done Cathy. I don't think my double wedding ring will become a large quilt. At the moment it may become a lap quilt.

  5. Oh wow... you kept yourself busy... on wonderful projects! Well done Cathy! ")

  6. Very productive at your place. Lots of lovely projects on the go.
