FNSI - Results

The start to my FNSI was a little slow to start as I had to make 4 batches of scones just before 5pm for Miss Keegan to take back to school for the School Fair.  Her class was running a cafe and Devon shire Tea's were on the menu ... yum yum.

When we did eventually get back home I got to settle in for the night.

I started off by finishing off a Softie that has been sitting around way to long!

Then put the last stitches in my secret project for the Friends with Benefits Swap

I then set up to start working on the Hand Quilting for my Swoon.
I am not really sure where I will go with the hand quilting so I am just going to start off by doing 1/4" inside the seams  for every block.

I am already thinking that I might like to do something inside the centre star so I will be keeping my eye out for inspiration.

Wrestling this beast, all 80" square of it, meant that one was enough for one night
so on to the next thing then bed.

I managed to finish of another Rose Star for my garden.

Rose Star No. 4

So overall a very productive FNSI.

 It is Miss Lily's birthday party tomorrow so I have some catering to organise today,
oh and that cake to decorate!

Enjoy your weekend.
