FNSI

Thanks to Wendy over at Sugarlane Quilts there was lots of stitching and sewing and knitting etc. happening last night.
I started in the afternoon with a catch up on my Splendid Sampler blocks. I must be getting better as I got both blocks donein one afternoon!
Block 17 Family Stars designed by Kimberly Jolly. I chose to have all my stars  completed in their own fabric...just a little different from the original.
Block 18 Lina's Gift designed by Pat Sloan. Such a pretty little basket.
For some reason the deep coral spot I have been using seems to photograph red!
Early in the evening I did some prep work....some cutting out.
I finished off working on my secret project which very boringly I can't show you!
Yesterday was also a red letter day because I became a Great Aunt again. A dear little boy born to my Nephew and his wife....a baby brother for my Great  Niece.
Isn't he adorable! Such a cute little cherub.
If you joined in with us "Friday-nighters " I hope you had fun too.
Happy weekend folks.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
