A Very Satisfying FNSI

Wonderful Wendy has done it again... had us all to her place for our Sew In...
The bikkies were yum Wendy, you clever cook!

As happens most Fridays, I went to my Patchwork & Quilting group... I was a lady on a sewing mission, not to be deterred from achieving my goal for the day.
I cut out the pieces for these bags in September last year, & incredibly it was only this week that I finally got sick of moving them around in my tiny Sewing Space. Just sew them up for goodness sake!
So I have done just that, & now they're almost done - finishing touches will happen on the weekend.
Nothing like getting a bee in your sewing bonnet, huh?!

While I was sewing away, I was surrounded by some very lively conversation going on with the ladies... nothing like a Committee decision that doesn't make sense, to get people hot under the collar... so I sewed & listened & talked. Happy me.

You can see the list of everyone who joined in for FNSI by clicking here.

~♥~ I Hope You Have A Safe & Enjoyable Weekend~♥~
* Thanks For Dropping By *

Cute little bags! I know what you mean about moving the projects around when it would be so much easier to just finish them! It's only Friday morning here, and I hope to get some sewing done today/tonight.

Cute bags there. Group politics can be so frustrating. I am in 3 patchwork groups and they all operate differently, some better than others. Head down, needle up and mouth zipped hehehe.

Great bags Anthea - isn't it silly how some things sit around for ages and then when you finally get on with it, it doesn't take very long at all. xx

Beautiful bags Anthea! I do the same thing, move things around and then one day say right just get on with it and then wonder why I didn't do it sooner when it didn't take very long!!Lol!!

Those little bags are super cute Anthea. Can't imagine why you didn't sew them together sooner ;o) Any chance you could send me that bee you had in your bonnet if you're finished with it. Well... it worked for you! Hugs xxx

shez said...

Hi Anthea your bags are lovley and great fabrics you used xx

Jeneta said...

These are lovely little bags Anthea. I am terrible for moving projects around. I am grateful that every so often I get a burst of "I feel like sewing that up now" (otherwise I think I'd be buried underneath them all!).
