FNSI, CTTY and 1 Xmas Item

Seems a lot for one small dish cloth to live up to but I finished it off on Friday night and it's going in the gift draw ready for Christmas ... which scarily is getting very close.

Thank you Wendy and Anthea for keeping the fun and friendship in crafting.  Pop over to 1 Xmas Item A Month after the 25th to see more lovely projects.

My next dishcloth is going to be in green ... just like our lawn at the moment after some lovely rain and also this little friend who was busy having dinner on the outside of my kitchen window.

No Power, No Sew

Friday night sewing just didn't happen for me :(  Once I was ready to sit and stitch, a storm was almost upon us and by the time I'd gone around the house checking windows ... packing towels under the back door ... the power went out! Nothing left to do but go to bed and listen to the rain on the roof and watch the light show outside.

I think we received about an inch of rain Friday night ... missed out last night and it's already steaming up for today ... more storms forecast. Head the warnings, be prepared and stay safe.

I haven't been able to access my bloglovin for a few weeks now so I finally gave up yesterday and have started again from scratch ... giving Feedly a go.

November Finishes?

Just maybe there is a chance that these little projects will make it over the finish line ... I don't have a good track record for finishes this year.

First is my day 2 stitchery from SDDO ... completed and all cut out ready for the sewing machine.

While I was cutting, these 2 stitcheries from Day 1 had all their bits and pieces cut out ready for the machine too.

Someone thinks she's a bit of a clever clogs...standing on mum's lunch.

Now for some Sunday sewing.

OPAM October

I have 2 small finishes to add to my OPAM page ... YaY!

Spring Flowers Dishcloth

Santa Dish Cloth - just couldn't get the red to photograph :(

Last night I cast on ready to start another dishcloth.  Seems all I can manage at the moment are small "not much thinking needed" projects. Mind you the not much thinking part can lead to original designs sometimes :)

FNSI ... I Made IT

Yes, not only did I sign up at the beginning of the week ... I managed to Sew In on Friday Night! Thank you Wendy for hosting ... always a pleasure to join in :)

It all began with a Lap War, as it does most evenings when I finally get to sit down on the lounge.

Not really a war as Fleur (feline) always curls up beside me and Millie (canine) ... well you can see for yourself.

Oh and of course my first hour of FNSI was knitting. Happy to say that this time round with smaller needles and a different pattern, the red wool is so much more cooperative.

Time for a little stitching then before wrapping up for the evening. My second project from October weekend away at SDDO.

Finished off the second outline on the 'E' and 'A' last night and a few more rows of knitting.

Happy Weekend    >^..^<

FNSI Sign Ups

To say I am amazed is an understatement. Here it is only Monday and I have already signed up for FNSI with Wendy ... considering I think I've missed the last couple and more often than not, I'm scraping in by the last inch of thread.

Pop over and sign up ... oh gosh ... can I be this organised with a project for Friday night?

Time to Touch Base

Another week flown by...hard to believe it's already been 5 weeks since the wedding and 4 weeks since attending the Stitchers Dream Day Out.

Last weekend was spent with this adorable little man ... perfect weather to break out the sand pit.

Friday morning the Equine Stork delivered this little girl ... like mother, like daughter.

Last night I stitched the last flower in my sweet bunnies from Day 1 at SDDO ... now to make them up before Spring is over.

I realized I never got back to sharing my Day 2 where I shared a double table (the naughty table) with a group of lovely friends old and new. Another amazing day spent stitching, chatting, yummy food and coffee ... all too soon it was time to make the 4 hour drive home :(

This was the example of my lovely project the second day, so now I can pick it up where I left off. Love working with the purples.

Wishing you a stitchy week     >^..^<
