It might as well be Saturday because I haven't a clue what happened to the weekend or to Monday for that matter.
So... in my world it's Saturday and here I am reporting in with my FNSI progress! I do remember I was there on Friday night
sewing unpicking along for all I was worth. The unpicking didn't start right away. In the beginning I was going great guns.
While I was leisurely contemplating what to work on for the sew in I suddenly realised I hadn't even looked at the August block for Natures Journey. Now I won't admit to panicing but after a slap from Kitty and a cup of hot sweet tea I girded my loins and got down to the business of piecing the first border.....
And here I am in action....... attaching the border....
Sorry I didn't have time to look up and as for smiling.... hard to do with clenched teeth.
I really should have opened a bottle of wine (darned diet) and loosened up a little before I sewed that border..... it looked like a dogs back leg when I'd finished with it. Out came the seam ripper... again and again and......
Things got a lot better after that.
I did manage to piece and attach all four borders to the centre block therefore I am declaring my FNSI a resounding success! I hope all you fellow FNSI'ers had a successful sew in too. I'll be around to visit all of you to find out.
Thanks Wendy for hosting another lovely Friday Night Sew In. Lang may yer lum reek! (as we say in Scotland)
Click here to see what everyone else got up to on Friday.
I did do more sewing over the weekend but to be honest it was all a bit of a blur. That had nothing to do with the gin either.... honest.
I prepared squares ready to applique to NJ. All 46 of them.....
This is how it looks tonight......
Eight blocks appliqued..... only 38 to go! I won't panic.... I won't!
That's about it for now. I just have time to share a bit of chicken with Maisie before I'm due in the Bat Cave.
Tomorrow (weather permitting) Mac wants me to help him fix the Septic Tank! Talk about a a
shi nasty job. Never mind....I'm sure it'll be fine as long as I don't inhale.
Onwards and upwards...
Have a wonderful week ....
See you all soon
Oh, your NJ looks great so far!
NJ looks good. Don't panic i haven't even started mine. :) Hugs,xx
Wow you made such good progress!!! Looks lovely, I forgot about the border lol, will have to get cracking was concentrating on the appliqué for the centre lol
Your quilt is looking beautiful
looks like the gin worked a treat...........NJ is looking great........
Good job getting the borders on Josie.
OMG!!! I hope you survived the septic cleaning session!! Your quilt is looking amazing so far despite the unsewing you did well, thank heavens for Kitty (and the gin!!)
Great progress! Loved reading through your post tonight.:)
had to chuckle at your blog today, seems you are enjoying yourself and the applique is coming along a treat, rather you than me for the septic tank you will need a few gins after that job
NJ is looking beautiful. Muck for Luck I say.x
Your quilt is looking awesome girl! Drat that reverse sewing. I am always doing it. Now I have been unpulling my attempt at crochet several times so I am grrrrrring with you. I am currently sipping a G&T lol. Good luck with the septic tank..put a peg on your nose but don't sneeze.
So funny...I love your borders, they're looking great. I hate it when you think everything is going fine only to find a few gathers or not so square bits! Better to unpick; you know you can't ignore them...
You are doing well with your NJ...
fantastic post Josie,
love the look on Kitty's face and you look so industrious at your machine!
Your NJ block looks amazing
Helping with the septic? sounds like a real bonding activity.
Not inhaling? Yeah that worked for Bill Clinton when at uni.
You are a cracker!
So glad you sorted out your border woes. It's looking great, I love the appliqued squares. I'm pretty sure you have another appointment tomorrow!
Such a cute quilt! I absolutely love the border.
You always make me laugh! Love the way your quilt is coming along, despite the reverse sewing.
what a delightful post, certainly brought many smiles..love the progress
Thanks for bringing a smile to my face! Yes, definitely wine before you start! xx
wonderful Nature's Journey progress, love your center piece.
Great post to read, made me smile all the way through.
Looks like you were in fine form Josie :-) You are making great progress on your NJ - I hadn't realised that border was done with appliqued squares - interesting. (I have the pattern but haven't started tackling it yet.) How nice of you to offer to help Mac with the septic tank, hope it didn't take too long and you were able to get back to your stitching quickly.
wow for someone who hadn't even opened the package you've zoomed along...your centre looks fabulous...
Hi Josie! Your NJ is looking fabulous! I thought it interesting that those squares are appliquéd. I hope all goes well with the septic tank, we worked on the wood stove yesterday. So much fun! lol
How lovely! :)
Your progress is great even with the multiples of border sewing ;) That's a lot of ittle squares to applique :)
Well done your natures journey is coming along nicely.
I was clueless for the FNSI and laughed a bit when discover it in the latter part of your post.
