FNWF update ...

Was supposed to post this yesterday but was a tad excited about signing up for the new BOM lol Friday I joined ladies from across the globe for Friday Night's with Friends. i worked on my hexis and was about to quilt them then decided maybe to chain stitch around them

Have decide to ditch that idea as it looks, as a friend said 'a little weird' I decided to cut out the first month of Sarah Fielkes BOM. I'm not into bright fabric so I pulled out my trusty French general fabrics for this one...continued again last night as it was a boys free night here, so the little girls and I watched 'into the woods" for the hundredth time lol
I decided to hand stitch Sarah's quilt lol lets see how I go at keeping up!

Gossip in the garden

I pulled out my Gossip inthe garden for the first sewing day of 2016 with girlfriends. Not too much sewing was done, lots of chatting and chatting lol 
We all started this quilt together so only seems right for it to be my project to finish this year on our group days. Everyone is at various stages of this quilt, so it helps to keep the motivation going.

I made a few hexis too for one of the blocks, gotta love em they are in every quilt I make lately!
