Goodness, end of another month and I actually have more finishes to share.  The first was a table runner top made last year ... but more likely the year before. 

Then in keeping with going through my stash of projects to finish or make, these handtowels turned into kitchen handtowels with a little machine embroidery (I'm just learning) and some sewing. These will be little extra gifts at Christmas.

Next up ... 2 more table centres. The fabric was only purchased last month and didn't even make it to the stash ... bit of a record in that. Tops were quick ... now to finish off.

FNWF Results, OPAM and More

Thread and hoop in hand, I started stitching this fellow Friday night. Slow and steady ... I need better lighting.  Thank you to Cheryll for hosting and friends for keeping company.


I've spent some time lately in my sewing room (should read - spare bedroom), going through piles of stuff and trying to sort out some things. I decided it was time to use some fabrics that I'd purchased ??? with certain projects in mind. First up were some pillow cases for the grandsons and niece. Next some sock savers for DDIL with more cut out ready to sew.


A UFO runner is next on the list followed by a bag that's been in the waiting for ??? a few years.

I also have 2 .... yes 2! ... finished quilt tops to share.  The first is the Murder Mystery Quilt 2021.

My 2nd top is a very belated quilt for my DD ... pattern and fabrics chosen by her. Now for the quilting.

Mum is coming to visit for a few days and we're off to my local patchwork group tomorrow. Looking forward to catching up with the ladies as I haven't made it in this year.

I'm off for a quick visit myself around some blogs to see what others were doing Friday night.

 Finally made it!  Not only did I remember but I have the time and the project ... I think :)

Just have to make a cuppa, grab a snack and find an embroidery thread.  I think I know what I'm going to work on tonight along with all the Friday Night Friends.  Then I'm going to have to come back tomorrow with a big catch up on what I achieved for March.

Happy stitching xx
