Another successful FNSI has come and gone!
My night didn't start out well - I'll admit. I had a little clear plastic bag that was filled with some "notions" (ric rac etc) that I had planned to work with. I had come home on Thursday - plopped it on the kitchen counter and then dumped some mail on top of it. WELL - I think my husband tossed it in the trash. Of course - he has no recollection of this. But really - it's the only explanation cuz Lord know the kids don't clean - it's just him (once a month or so) and me. So, after about 30 minutes of searching every possible spot.. I gave up. $6 worth of goodies.. gone! But I picked myself up.. and moved on to project #2.
I had plans to get this section of my quilt top completely together.. but I only got about half way there.
I still plan to add another couple borders to the quilt. The first will be all white... then I'm doing a HST (half square triangle) border.. then another white.
So I starting marking all my HST's.
tutorial I told you are about recently - because I am working with a charm pack and didn't want my HST's to be that small. But to speed up the process, I will be doing some chain piecing. Do you chain piece? I love chain piecing!
I'm hoping to have them all sewn and ready for laying out before the weekend is over. It's been rainy.. so my chances for success are good if it stays like this.
ALSO - I've decided to draw 2 lucky winners this month. So make sure you get your pictures posted today!
The first lucky winner will get this...
The book is from me and Bobbi - and the charm packs are from Barb and Mary of Me & My Sister Designs.
Did you make progress last night? Or did you get derailed?.. it happens to the best of us sometimes!
