FNSI For October

Yay it's the weekend!

It's been a lovely Friday... Dropped mr14 off at school then went for the little drive out to my Patchwork group for the duration of the school day... The ladies are great company as always & we
get talking about the most interesting & varied subjects...

I worked on finishing a stitchery piece that's been on the pile for months... now it's ready to be made up into a mini-quilt... it's the same stitchery I used earlier in the year for a swap.

I also made up the binding for the table topper & sewed it on, ready for turning over & stitching into place... oh my, does this mean I'll have a CTTY item ready ahead of time?!

Thank you Wendy for having us again for Friday Night Sew-In... you've had a lot going on in your life lately, so we all appreciate you hosting us xo

Remember the Christmas calendars/wall hangings I made up a few weeks ago, for selling in the shop at Patch group? I'm pleased to report that one of them has sold, woo hoo! Now I need the other one to sell...

No border fabric was to be found for my jewel-y brights Scrappy Trip Around The World, so I decided to just make the quilt bigger... it's going to end up 6 x 6 blocks, with no border...more blocks need to be made, so they will be something to potter with in the coming weeks. Strange thing with this quilt is that I found a fabric that's great for the backing, but I don't like it as a border... 
or is it me that's strange, LOL 

~ I Hope You Have A Great Weekend & Get To Do Something You Love ~
