FNwF for October & More Scrap Sewing

Thank you Cheryll for hosting us again... a lovely cyber-party of happy stitchers!

On Friday I put the last stitches to the Elf at the top of this darling pre-printed design from The Birdhouse (Natalie Bird), called Making Spirits Bright. It's good to have this one finished, I've been dithering along with it for far too long.
I look forward to skipping around blogland & seeing the work of the other FNwF ladies!

During the week, I completed the scrappy sewing that was started at a workshop in late August.
While the result is very nice & I enjoyed the sewing, I'm not sure I'd be in a hurry to sew it again.
It currently measures about 54" x 70", so with a border it will come up to a nice snuggly size.

Clearly, I don't have enough EPP projects either in progress or on the planning board... recently I joined a group I found on Facebook & now have another reason to play with paper shapes!
The "Hexie Flower Mystery Sew Along" has a theme each month & members make a hexy flower in accordance with their understanding of the theme... as literal or as obscure as the maker thinks... there's also a mid-month theme for those who want to make that too.
I really wanted to share my favourite make so far, on the September theme of 'A Novel Idea'. I hope you can enlarge the image & see my Novel Idea on ways to hide your fabric!

Thanks for reading & have a great day!
