FNSI success October

Well I didn't make the ipad case but I did finish this week's Christmas SAL block from Sewhappyme. I've kept up to date with this one and there's only two more blocks to do. Again I was able to print the stitchery direct onto the starched fabric.

October crop catch up

Whilst everyone revisited colour blocking and shaped templates, I tried to tidy up the unfinished kits and class layouts with some small success. The layouts made with the templates were all first class and showed that unloved doesn't mean dated or unusable.

October FNSI

September FNSI didn't happen for me, but I have high hopes for this month. Lizzie is going with four friends to have some professional photos taken and then they're coming back to ours for homemade pizza before going to JACY. Oops, better get a new oven before Friday then.

Look at what arrived in yesterday's post

One of these pink bags of goodies from the Urban Stitches retreat in Australia ordered from Under The Mulberry Tree Sold out now unfortunately.

Contents including the necessary fabric and threads for each project:
Melly & Me Sketch & Stitch (now finished)
Leanne's House Sew Laugh Love
Rosalie Quinlan Dance of the Hearts
Charm pack of Lecien squares of Old New Fabrics 30s
Two FQs of Lecien fabric

Here is a photo or two of the finished Melly & Me project. My quickest ever finish and just in time for OPAM for September. The kit contained a busy green floral which I swapped for some Bonnie & Camille turquoise Bliss. The kit contained hanky linen which is used often in Australian stitcheries and I was surprised how open weaved it is.

I have also downloaded week 2 of the Christmas Stitch Along The first pattern which I've finished is up for two weeks and each subsequent pattern is up for one week. So don't delay. I have printed the pattern straight on to the fabric as I hate the tracing. Another reason why I love the Urban Stitches kit as the patterns are preprinted onto the linen.
