FNSI March 2012
Here is my FNSI for March 2012. All I managed was the lettering on the left hand side and the hand of the angel on the right hand side. This was my Christmas present from Claire and is destined to be the piece I take on trips and to our quilting group over the next few months to work on. The pattern is Hope Love and Friendship by Rosalie Quinlan - with a donation for each pattern going to support breast cancer sufferers.
And here is how the finished article should look like. :) Photo taken from Rosalie's blog
On Saturday I went to the local scrapbooking crop for six hours (organised by me). I have lost my scrapbooking mojo as my photo printer is playing up and I haven't got around to uploading some photos to snapfish and ordering some prints. That is a priority job for this week or when I get to the Gogogetaway at the end of the month I'll have nothing to work on. I also need to order two prints from the local newspaper. As well as taking my scrapbooking stuff, I also took a jelly roll and yardage to cut my pieces for the Hopscotch quiltalong. Hopscotch is a pattern by Camille Roskelly and I am using her Ruby range, some Moda red dotty and a white on white with a small star for the quilt.
Although I got all of the pieces cut on Saturday, I only sewed a few pieces yesterday as I concentrated on quilting a quilt for a customer and then later in the day we spent two hours helping take down the needlework section of the Eisteddfod. With Nick, Matthew and Lizzie also helping, it went quite quickly and all but two of the 600+ entries were returned to their owners.
It is Mother's Day in the UK today and I have been spoilt with a card, semi circle rulers for my quilting machine and my car has been cleaned and waxed. My car is now filled with the Eisteddfod entries for Caesarea Quilters which will be displayed at our meeting this evening and members will vote for their favourites and the Chez Soi entries will be returned at our meeting on Wednesday after they have been made into a display for our annual photograph.
