I really enjoyed having the motivation of FNSI this week. 

Tonight I started with this...

I was pretty happy with that progress. 
Thanks Wendy for organising FNSI and getting me motivated.

Some Progress on a UFO

Finally starting to see some progress with one of my UFOs.  I can't even remember when I started this one so I will probably start a new page for any that weren't documented on my 2013 UFO page. Hopefully since I have only left a few projects out I might be a bit better at getting them finished ;0)

This is one of the hexagon sides to Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched  Home Sewn Sampler Bag. I know I started it with a couple of friends when we were doing some social sewing, life changed and I never got mine finished but after seeing one of the others finished bag, I was inspired to get to work on mine. Maybe I can get this side finished tomorrow!

It's Been a Long Time

I haven't been doing much lately but I am starting to feel the need to do creative work again now. I just signed up for the Meadow Mystery Quiltalong and I still have some UFO's I'm working on so that should keep me busy for a while. Anyone want to join me?

Finally finished

I have been working on this quilt for a while and all that was left to do on it was to put the binding on. I spent most of the day stitching it on, but at last it is finished. Tomorrow I will be able to get a hanger for it and drop it off to it's new owner. I hope they love it as much as I do.

It was a pattern by Nancy Halvorson from her Curiosities & Mischief book which I adjusted a little to suit the purpose of hanging in a preschool classroom.

Now I am off to sew on some duck wings, beaks and eyes to finish off some more little ducks.

Linking up to Kathy's Quilts Slow Stitching Sunday Don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to today too!

September OPAM

I'm a bit late posting this (but not as late as last month!!! LOL) 

Here is what I finished in September,

The "Sewing Makes Me Happy Thread Keeper" by Gail Pan

It is on display at the shop now!

Mother Duck from Melly and Me's "Five Little Ducks" Pattern

I still have five little ducks to make, They are also going on display at the shop for a while!

Then I finally finished the Unicorn a friend asked me to make from a "Funky Friends Factory" Pattern

And last but not least I finished the "Barn Owl Doll" by Paloma Rocha  which was also for my friend. They wanted it in pink and purple so I had fun trying out colour combinations with this one!

Then I had fun taking photos of the doll and the Unicorn together

I have been working on other stuff as well but none of them have reached the finished stage.

August OPAM

Oops just realised I hadn't done a post for August.

I finished the Croc which I posted about in my last entry

I also finished this quilt by finally putting the binding on it!

My sewing friends encouraged me to do some hexagons (Even though I despise them!!!) so I also finished this little project
I am leaving my mug rug at my favourite craft shop in the classroom for when we are sewing. I might finish the other one one day....

I also finished the Summer Fun BOM finally (But I forgot to take a photo before it went on display at the shop so I will have to post it later)
