FNSI Report

I didn't accomplish quite as much as I had  hoped for FNSI but any progress is good. First off I made some more pinwheels and have the rest ready to assemble so the end is near ;-0
The pinwheel in the far upper right corner is a completed one and it is  there so I keep things in the correct order , it is amazing how I can turn those babies around . Here is a peak at what this will eventually look like, I have sewn pinwheels on one side ,and guess what, I was able to remove the spacer as it was not needed and would have posed more of a problem than a solution , go figure , guess I am not that good at figuring lol!
It was then time to do a little handwork, in the evenings I prefer to sit and sew by hand in my comfortable chair. First off was to do the limbs on the tree for the BOM wool project with Melody , you really should check it out it is adorable . Once that was done I started attaching all those tiny leaves , I have placed a spot of glue on each one just to save me a little time and also so I could see where they were needed .I have some of them sewn down but not all but it is really looking great I think. I used a variety of greens  and hopefully that adds a little interest.

 So that was my evening a successful FNSI, thank so much Bobbi and Heidi  .Thanks for the visit , hope the sun is shining where ever you are , it is a lovely sunny day here and a little chilly but a lovely winter day .
 hugs Sheila

  8. Both of your projects are beautiful, Sheila...can't wait to see them finished!

    It is COLD here, today. We had our first winter storm last night and although we didn't get any snow, everything is covered in 1 inch of ice!

    Enjoy your day, my friend!

    XOXO,

    Cyndi
