FNSI

 Last night I joined Wendy and the girls for a night of stitching
I didnt get quite as much done as I would have liked because I had an unexpected visit from my ex SIL
I appliqued these pansies for a future project
 Sewed the binding on my latest "Lorraine's Flowers runner and that's about it
 This one is for me I usually make them for special people in my life.

And I received my gifts for Christmas In July swap
Looking forward to opening these

Congrats, you got a lot more done then l did. Good intentions and all. Wet, cold, weather and driving lessons, taxi service etc. Both your projects are awesome.

Beautiful pansies. They really are such sweet flowers. Lovely runner too. It will be hard to leave those pressies in tact.

I'm with Maria! you did make the runner for someone special! It is lovely!

I think I'm living with Maddy :-) same scenario in my house! except for the cold, it's warm here with drizzly rain but in for cold temps next week apparently. Maddy obviously has a teenager in her life too!

Happy Sewing!

Jules: Hi Illene, so sorry not to have visited your blog for ages. Comps and life in general... But I have not forgotten you and your family and your wonderful garden and sewing work. How lovely to then find Pansies ( for thought ) when I just took a quick peek. Had to find time to say that I do still think of you and others I used to visit on-line. Very best wishes. Jules.
