Bits and Pieces for FNSI

Last night I settled in for a bit of stitching with other bloggy friends over at Wendys from Sugarlane Quilts. Nice to know you are stitching along with others from all over.
My efforts were bitsy. I sewed the binding down on this little cot blankie panel for my new great nephew...who won't need it if I don’t hurry.
 I also whizzed up a couple of burp towels to go with it. So finally his giftie is ready for wrapping....just loved those little leggings and pullover too.
I then wanted to make sure the next Blessings block was under way so some prep work done for the next circle.
I finally finished off with my little furry girl Beatrix. Her little face was starting to come to life in the hoop the night before.
I stayed up quite late stitching (sleeping isn't my friend these days ) and got a good bit done. I think she is very sweet.
Well we all think our children are the make believe ones are too lol!
Thank you  Wendy for having us at your place again. Also Happy birthday month xx
I am off to the shops as yesterday I managed to loose a bag with lovely cards, gift wrap papers, ribbons and other doings for a little party....quite a haul for someone! Don't even know where I  lost them. I tell you this aging caper is not for the faint hearted!
Enjoy your day,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  21. Some lovely things for your great nephew. Loving your EPP and your teddy is so sweet. I have my teacup teddies proudly displayed on my dining table at the moment. Hmm, insomnia is my constant companion that I can do without. I can't get much done because I can't focus. I think I had 14 hours sleep over 3 nights and that is actually a lot for me. I hope you get past it soon.
