FNSI | show and tell

It was FNSI again .............. that came around rather quickly, didn't it?

Once gain for me, it was Mr Fixit Rostered Day Off (RDO), however, the cricket was on, so I had the afternoon and evening to myself.

In the afternoon, I did some catching up on posting photos to my blogs (see my previous post), and then in the early evening I got to spend some time in the sewing room :)

I worked on completing a block for my CraftMad family quilt - this block is for Merry (tease photo only)  I will do the big reveal later, when the block arrives.

Double Aster for Merry
This is the second Double Aster I have made, and whilst this one is a bit better size wise, it is till a tad larger than 12 1/2" - this block is quite addictive in that I want to make another one as the sizing is a challenge and I don't want it to defeat me, but I really do not enjoy working with so many bias edges :(  

I also worked on a block for my Farmer's Wife ................ only one block, but I had several attempts at it
1st attempt - birds are too big

2nd attempt - better sizes, but not going together well, and block is still a bit big
Back to the drawing board :)
