Busy week

I needed to make a little gift for a friend so i whipped up a stitchery from Michelle's country alphabet to go on it.
Next i caught up with my 100 days of hexies, 84 to 92. We must be finished now so i'd better do the last 8 up.
I made a pile more hexies for Libby Morgan
I've spent several days now turning them into flowers
Every year for a number of years i've been buying myself a Jim Shore Christmas ornament. Sometimes 1 sometimes 2. This is my choice for this year.
I love the Woodland series.

Happy Stitching,

My week

I finished the half blocks for Icecream Soda then laid all the blocks out to see what they looked liked together.
This isn't my final layout. When i get the joining pieces prepped I'll figure it out then. The joiners should arrive next week.

After that i started on Month 4 of Round We Go
All ready to sew &
finished the last one last night. I wasn't keen on this block as there isn't any intructions on how to sew any of the blocks together. I accidently cut the long angled rectangles the wrong way so wasted fabric there but i got them sewn together in the end.
 3 more sets of hexies for my Libby Morgan quilt.

Happy Stitching

FNwF November.....

.... was a fail for me. I had 3 quilts ready to put binding on even though i couldn't find one of the bindings but i woke with a migraine & that was that.

This is what i did during the week
More hexies for my Libby Morgan quilt.
This isn't a mess its little piles of the 4 full blocks, 8 half blocks, side & corner pieces for month 9 of Icecream Soda.
I should've taken this photo after I'd finished all the gluing. 😊😊.
I had these 3 done by Thursday night. As I felt better last night (Saturday) & i decided to sit & sew while watching Alias Grace on Netflix & i managed to catch up on 100 hexies in 100 days,
these are 69 to 83 & 
The last full block, 2 half blocks 
started a 3rd before i went to bed.

Pop over to our lovely hostess Cheryll to find links to see everyones projects.

Happy Stitcing

Catching up.

The week before i added more flowers to my Libby Morgan quilt.
I took a break then & last week stitched merrily away at Ruth's Dream quilt

The last 2 nights i've been making up more hexies for LibbyMorgan
Today i really must get into month 9 of Icecream Soda & then start month 4 of Round We Go. plus i need to drag all my purples out again as i've decided Purplicious Mischief needs another row & slightly wider borders to fir my bed.

Happy Stitching,

FNSI October

I was going to bind my quilt but then i remembered my daughter was booked in for dental surgery so that blew that plan out of the water. So it was just handwork for me last night
The light shining on the number 60 to 68 hexies for 100 days of hexies has made them look a terrible colour. I think i should give up taking photo's. I looked at them on the camera & they seemed a nice photo but when i loaded them onto the computer they looked wrong.

After that i did a repair job for a small boy.
He had asked me if i'd sew his pillow back together. The seam had come undone & i don't know if he'd lost some stuffing or not as it was only about 3/4 full. I pushed that down & added more stuffing so the pillow is nice & comfy now.

Next to do was to finish off this stitchery
All that was left after working on it during the week was the round berries & the border. Glad it's done. Now i can work on my Ruth's quilt stitcheries.

Pop over & visit our very lovely hostess Wendy to find links to who joined in FNSI last night to see what was worked on.
