For me..... it never happened!!
I did sign up in good time and I'd even picked out a project and fabric. For once I was ahead of the game. Here's what I was going to do....
I planned to start the one with the applique vase in the centre. It's a Lori Smith design that I think is really cute. All the quilts on this pattern finish at 12" square. I love the idea of quilts in a frame.... mounted just like 'real' art.
So... what went wrong!
My shoulder started hurting again and my neck stiffened in sympathy! Friday... I looked like a hybrid cross of the Bride of Frankenstein and Queen Victoria...... stiff as a board and not at all amused! I did manage to do the regular grocery run but by the time I got home.... cold and wet.... I was capable of nothing but grumping. And that I did....all day and to Olympic Gold Medal Standard.
On the 'up' side.... I did get time to sit and browse through this.....
It's full of cute stitcheries and lovely little projects. Of course all the instructions are in French (like the magazine in my last post) but like I said before... who cares! Where there's a will.... there's a way.
I haven't been lazy all weekend. I did manage to stitch one or two stems on my Vignette Flower border until I realised I was on a hiding to nothing and gave up. So I tried tidying up in here.....
not a bad effort at all.... for a one armed woman. It hasn't looked so clean in months. After that I caught up with a bit of 'clerical' work i.e. I sorted out patterns and magazines etc. It's good to feel organised... for a change.
So... that's that! All I can do is say 'sorry' to you if you've popped in to see what I did for FNSI. I'll do better next time.... promise.
OK.... I'm heading back to my reliner for a drugged up (painkillers) night in front of the TV.
Hope you all are full of beans and having fun....
See ya soon
Josie, even in pain you are hilarious. I am ashamed to say I had quite a giggle at your expense! But I do hope you feel better soon and manage to start on that adorable project.
Oh I do hope you are pain free soon as I can hear that new project calling your name from here :o)

Oh,sorry to be hearing that! Good luck with lots of pain killers. Love your sewingroom:-)
Poor you, I hope you are back to normal now. The new projects look beautiful and I love the cat photos. Take care, hugs Wendy.
Love the project you picked out to do--- you'll be organised for next FNSI now. Hope you're back up to speed again by now and not messing up that sewing room too much.... :-)
