Finally FNSI Friday Follow-Up

I didn't forget FNSI.  I had a fabulous time playing with these....


Yeh.... it's been a long time since I showed you some hexie blooms.  That's because it's been a long time since I made any.   I'd almost forgotten the simple pleasure of snuggling in my recliner with a glass of vino and the TV stitching hexies for all I'm worth.

Right now I can't stop watching animal rescue programmes.  Animal Cops Houston...  Animal Precinct and Animal Cops Phoenix.   The more upset I got at seeing animal cruelty cases the faster I stitched.  I got loads done and the animals all had a happy ending (most of them anyway.. we won't go into the ones that didn't).

I've been having quite a busy time of it lately (for me anyway).   It's been really frustrating not having enough time to catch up with my favourite blogs or find any new favourites for that matter.   I'm hoping once this week is by I'll get back to normal (ha).

There's been no time for these....


Notice the postman brought me some templates all the way from Australia.  Sue Daley ones for tiny tumblers and itty bitty Klosjes.   I think I have a masochistic streak a mile wide!   Haven't had time to play with them yet.  Or read the magazine for that matter. 

Sally came over today to work on her twin baby quilts....

One on the table....

And one on the back of the chair.

The twins are due any day now so Sally has really got to get her skates on.   This is the first time she's quilted anything and she's terrified.   She doesn't believe that's normal either!   While she quilted I acted as general dogsbody labourer finishing ends and guess what.... unpicking!  Sally sure knows where to find an expert unpicker when she needs one.

I've got one final FNSI photo to show you.....


Do you think they are just a little spoiled?   NAH!!

Hope you are all having a great time whatever you are up to

See ya soon..
Josie

what pretty flowers! Lovely baby quilts.I find those animal rescue shows a little depressing. Terrible what people do to their animals. Speaking of animal cruelty, Love those mistreated moggies in front of the fire on their shabby pillows.
