FNSI for May... The Calm Before The Storm

Yes, literally!

Our weather on Friday was just beautiful... the sun was shinin' & the birds were chirpin'...
Fast forward to late evening & boy how different... massive winds, heavy rains, small hail... it howled all night & continues this morning. Forecast to continue all weekend, oh dear!

I braved it to take this pic at 8.40am:
 
But, a committed stitcher doesn't let anything get in her way... I spent yesterday in the company of my patchwork friends... started stitching another little Christmas design... no stitching in the evening for me, so I was happy to get some done during the day instead. I guess you call tell what it's going to be?!

Wendy is our generous host for this sew-in, do pop over here & see what everyone else got up to for their FNSI... thank you Wendy xx
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

The Perth Craft & Quilt Fair in on at the moment... a combination of factors means I won't be going this year... We had a long-standing invitation for an event today, which we're now not going to because of the treacherous weather.
I'm sorry to miss an opportunity to catch up with a few blogging friends... Will definitely have to organise something in the next couple of months, it's been way too long since we've done it.

After much searching & financial planning, I finally have some furniture purchased & ready for collection for my sewing room... woo hoo... not long now!!

Thank you everyone for your wonderful ideas & tips regarding my recent post about stitchery fabric... gave me a good deal to think on & try out... you're all so thoughtful. xx

Yes, you'll have to arrange another time to meet up Anthea. Best to stay out of the terrible weather if you can. I'm looking forward to see your new sewing room! xx

Gosh some really dark weather still! I must say I would be unlikely to head out either :) Sweet cross stitching :) Great to have furniture set for your room, really makes it all more exciting :)

Justine said...

Another cute stitch! Can't wait to see the furniture you have chosen. Stay safe in that dreadful weather.

Renee said...

I am so sorry the weather has interfered with meeting up with your blogging friends at the quilt show. Sending safe wishes your way! Your stitching is just too cute!

Hello Anthea,

It certainly has been good weather for ducks. More to come Tuesday. Plenty of stitching done on your cross stitch.

Happy days.
Bev.

Deb R said...

Love your cross stitching, stay safe in the bad weather!

Yvonne W said...

In weather like that it is best to stay indoors and what better than to sew. Your sewing room will be all ready before you know it-- how exciting.

Susan said...

Oh no - a double whammy!! Oh well - furniture and sewing room is all coming along..

I'm looking forward to see your sewing space! It's a good thing you had your cross stitch in that bad weather.

Lin said...

Seems we are having the same weather! We had a very warm day yesterday and then storms in the evening and today it has been raining all day. Looking forward to seeing your new furniture and your studio complete! xx

Maria said...

We had the winds and heavy rain yesterday but managed to get to Patch for a day of sewing between a downpours......
Your cross stitch is growing nicely.

Leanne said...

Hello Anthea, we had a horrible weather to over the weekend. Like you I stayed in and got some sewing done, I can't wait to see your sewing room.

That sky definitely looks menacing! The stitching, though, is wonderful!
