FNSI Report

Wonderful Wendy has hosted us again for Friday Night Sew In...
I've not tried anything Chai yet, so next time I'm out, I just might have to, given the look of the yummy treat pictured on Wendy's blog!

In the next 6 months or so, I'm going to be working on a couple of very special personal projects, which I have decided not to share here for the time being... there won't even be sneaky-peaks... Well, except for this, just to prove that I did actually do something for my FNSI!

The fabrics are Kate Spain's range 'Horizon'; I love her fabrics & I know that I'm going to really love sewing with them. I even kept the selvedges, for a bit of a play later too!

The Site Manager clearly didn't think I needed supervision, & went for a few hours 'sunbaking' in his favourite sunny cooler-months spot - nice life, huh?!

It's lovely to know that while me & my rotary blade were busy, so many other ladies who love to sew & stitch were busy with their projects too... thanks again Wendy... here's the list of everyone who joined in.

*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
On the weekend of Friday 24th, I'm off to my very first quilting/sewing Retreat!! Woo Hoo!
My Patch group friends assure me that I'm in for a wonderful time... there is no set project or Challenge happening, so I'll have to think about what to take...
Don't you love her cotton-reel necklace?!
Thanks for popping by & I hope you have a great weekend

Sounds like you have some major projects planned Anthea. Love the site manager sunning himself lol my two are doing it as well now that it is finally cold here. Enjoy your retreat next weekend! They always look like fun from what I have read on various blogs.

Jeneta said...

Haha - I love the caricature (self portrait perhaps?). I wonder if she gets a bit of a hair cut every time she moves her head! Friday's not far away now. I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your selvedges. I have been collecting mine for a while, but haven't done anything with them (oh, except for a mug rug that ended up looking quite awful!). Those trimmings show that you have been very busy indeed!

Allie said...

Kate said...

Glad to read that you had a productive night; if the supervisor approved, it must have gone ok :-) Exciting to be off to retreat, we have one soon too and I have no idea what to take!!
