FNSI

Well I did get half a dozen stitches done last night and nibble some Maltesers and M&M's which qualifies as a FNSI...
It took a lot of hard work to get this little person into this state.
And I can assure you 100% I worked off every minisucle of those treats. Gorgeous little girl all the same.
Thankfully her big brother was a much happier customer.
On the way out yesterday I found the new issue of Country Threads in my mail box and I am in good company with some friends you may know this issue.
You can read a lovely profile on our Jenny of Elefantz and there are lovely projects from Fiona from Designs by Fee and Cath Walker. Can you spy my little Angel tote bag there on the cover too.
I think she turned out rather sweet and is perfect for all those retail therapy days to the quilt shop.
I bought her gorgeous fabric from Homepatch in Bathurst last year from Anni Downs and just loved it.
I hope everyone had fun stitching at FNSI and you enjoy your weekend.
I am looking forward to coming to visit to see what you all got up to last night.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. Hi Michelle,
    Oh yes, those little sweethearts are hard to get to sleep some nights, I have never forgotten!!! Every little stitch you get to do, gets you closer to the finish of a project.
    Cheers, Anita.
