FNSI and Finishes

 This is my little corner of the lounge room at present ... I finished the hand stitching on the last little fabric pouch, then moved onto some knitting. It's a bit hard to photograph on the round needles but it is growing ... this will be one half.

Here is a photoshoot this morning of the 4 pouches in action ... lighting indoors isn't great so I went outdoors in the lovely sunshine as well.

Thank you Wendy for bringing us together. The wind is howling outside so I'm off to the craftavan where it's snug and warm for some EPP.

Don't you just LOVE the sound of rain on the roof?  ... it's pitter pattering as I type ... a lovely Friday night for some knit or crochet with friends.

FNWF and A Sewing Weekend

Crochet won the day, or night, and a few more rows added to my rug while keeping my knees warm. It's always nicer knowing that friends are crafting away at the same time ... thank you Cheryll for hosting us.

Saturday dawned cold and wet so I ZOOMED out to my craftavan to catch up with friends from all over for some chatting, sewing and sharing ... thank you ladies.

I managed to complete 7 neck scarves and also a couple more rows to the crochet rug.

Sunday I made up the June block for MMQ and now I'm planning on 4 fabric hold-alls ... one for each gorgeous grandson. 

After some lovely rain it was nice to have the sun out today and get all the washing done, dried, folded and put away. My weekend is a wrap.

June Wrap

End of another month and a financial year...gosh!  A little bit of WOOFA progress and 1XMAS but sadly no OPAM. This is my crochet rug growing nicely.

Looks like we're in for a wet few days so fingers crossed for some serious sewing. Thanks Cheryll.

This month I've been crocheting along, a couple of rows most nights and my rug is slowly growing. I found a plastic tub makes a great storage for the balls of wool and the rugs sits on top.

Then almost a fortnight a go, I finally made a start on my Daughter's wedding quilt. Currently sewing all the pieces into rows. I will have to take an update photo tomorrow.

Thank you Cheryll for keeping us on track xx

FNSI Crochet

After a busy weekend I'm here to report progress on my crochet rug. A few more rows and so it grows ... this is my main focus for evenings in front of the TV.

Previously ... MMQ block is complete and tucked away with the others ... a  fun fishy block.

This next project has been on my to do list for 6 years. The pattern and materials waiting patiently untill now so last Monday I got busy sewing and cutting.

Thank you Wendy for bringing everyone together and I look forward to June FNSI. I'll be blog hopping this week to visit and checkout what others have to share.

At Last It Grows and FNWF

 I'm not daring to look back at the year of starting this crochet rug, I'll just concentrate on the finish as I'm really glad I could pick up (and remember how!) where I had left off. Friday night I managed to full rows of colour, each colour is 2 rows. A total of 6.75 rows since picking it up again last Monday.


It's sets of 3 treble crochet with 1 chain between each ... in the 1st row of a colour, the middle one of each set hooks down to the previous row. I was given the  pattern from mum and she called it 'Cat's Tail' ... it may have other names like 'Houndstooth'.

This coming week will reveal the next block of my Murder Mystery Quilt. So far this year I've been completing the blocks before the end of each month ... last year I'd be rushing to get them done as the next one was being released ... so here is April's block (2 blocks of applique).

This quilt will be my 3rd mystery quilt and my favourite.

Thank you Cheryll for another lovely Friday Night.
