FNSI Report

It is Saturday here now and since I live on the east coast of Canada I get to stitch with friends on Thursday and Friday night as those on the other side of the world are happily stitching on what for me is Thursday,  does that make sense . Anyway on Thursday evening I was stitching on my wool project from last year , a BOM with Darlene from  Needle Pulling Thread quilt shop.
 
I have all but the fence done so I think i made great progress . It was so hot that evening I really must have had a screw loose to be working with wool .
 Now last night I didn't start until later in the evening as we were experiencing a thunder storm but once that passed I decided I would add a border to this runner I sewed together on Thursday or maybe it was Wednesday . 
 Two of these blocks were in a bag I purchased from the  estate of a fellow guild member . Carol was a wonderfully creative person and it was such a difficult job to sell off her lovely fabrics and works in progress . I was able to find enough fabric in the bag to make an extra block and had to use her blocks as reference to make a pattern as I went along . I think they are suppose to be apples , anyway I love the colours and really like the green for a border.  I will machine quilt this I think . 
During the time that I wasn't able to use the machine I also cut strips to make more pillows , oh I know what am I thinking . I just wanted to use up that denim and get rid of the rest of it.  Here are the two pillows I created , having just finished the surf one a few minutes ago .


 This was the first one , can't have a beach without sand 😉
And let's face it when we go to the beach we like to watch the surf of the waves 😊
 So thanks for stopping by and thanks to Wendy for hosting us for FNSI , to see what others were up to head on over here http://www.sugarlane-designs.com/2017/07/dry-july-fnsi-sign-ups-open-now.html

  4. Sand and surf are wonderful companions for 'beach'! I keep a clock here set to Toronto time because our son and DIL live there, it's now 7 P.M. Saturday night in Toronto and 9 A.M. Sunday here. You are an hour ahead of Toronto, so it would be 8 P.M. Saturday where you are.

  9. I love your surf and sand pillows! Such a creative idea. Isn't it sad when our quilting friends pass on - but lovely to have some of their unfinished projects to remember them by.

  10. Your Owl block is really cute! And all your work with the denim is fabulous!! So many ideas and designs - good old Pinterest, isn't it great for a bit of inspiration?! The runner also looks lovely - so good that you were able to use your late friend's work and finish it for her.
