catching up, crossing off lists ....

Where has the year gone?  Once again, I have let things slide a bit :(

I have been busy, but have not blogged about things as much - I want that to change next year, and be more active with my blogging and general creativeness :)

Anyway, here are a few pics of adventures in my sewing room.

Time to start farming again :)

I was tidying up the sewing room, and decided to put up my Farmers Wife quilt on the 'design wall' in the hope it will motivate me to commence 'farming' again :)

This was my last 'progress shot' from 2016.


We are looking at buying a new bed in the very near future, and have decided to upgrade to a 'king size' bed, so I will have to make this quilt a little bit wider now :)

let the farming begin!

Denise nominated this lovely pink hearts block - I know it doesn't look like much like this

FNSI - progress report

It was another FNSI - they come around so quickly ;)

I did a mix of designing, calculating (blahhh, I hate numbers!) and cutting and this morning I did some sewing :)

I have been hanging onto these Actil sheets remnants for years, and I managed to come across some more via Facebook Marketplace.  Right place at the right time me thinks!

FNSI | first real sewing for the year!

YAY - I got to spend some time in the sewing room along with some FNSI friends :)

Friday night, I was able to take some time and sort through a few fabrics, and do some cutting in preparation for some quilt blocks for CHERISH do. Good Stitches charity bee.

Our first block for the year, is a 'skateboard' block for Jackie ............ I had to sort through quite a bit of my fabric stash, as the colour selections were a mix of blues &/or greens for an older boy ...... my stash is decidedly girly, and most certainly very few greens that weren't leaves (I realise my stash is quite heavy on the florals LOL)

Any way, after taking forever to decide what fabrics to use, after the cutting, I decided leave it to the weekend to finish sewing.


I was also happy to spend some 'cyber' time with my quilty friends as part of Cynthia's Ark Project Uninterrupted 

must go now, time for tea!  Hope you all had a great weekend, I know I did!
