March FNSI Zipper Crazy

Since my friend showed me how to put a zipper in I have gone a bit crazy
Last Night when I joined Wendy and friends for our monthly sew in I whipped up two bags
The first one is passable but my second is much better
Last weekend I had a wonderful time in Melbourne for the annual LGS weekend
I have not been able to make it for the last three years so it was wonderful to be part of it this year
We dressed up for
the Games night which had an Alice in Wonderland theme
Visited Lucello's and had loads of fun
More photos to share but will leave them for another post

ANother Month Done and Dusted

Friday night saw some of us join Cheryll for another night of stitching
I have started making a dinosaur quilt
Sat down with my Baileys and did some hand stitching
The lovely Fee over at Craft With Fee has been giving us a new project every Monday in a year of gifts
I made this card and box which holds a block of chocolate
Wish someone would gift me something like this lol
I am very happy the way it turned out
If I was smarter on the computer I would have turned the photo but I think you get the idea

Some little finishes

A card for my Mums 91st birthday which was yesterday

A friend gave me a lesson in zips
Have had a phobia about zips for years and always avoided anything with a zip
The top one is  not as wonky as it looks in the photo
Iam happy now Hopefully mastered my fear of zips

I made a card box from a pattern from Craft with Fee Great tutorial and easy to follow Now to get to making the card to go in it which will hold a block of chocolate
Started a new quilt
Did this for the Friday night sew a long with Wendy and friends but my internet has been unreliable and couldn't post
This little bloke took his first steps last weekend
Growing so darn fast
I have HOPEFULLY fixed my comment notification so please leave me a comment so I can see if it is working again
Why it keeps going away baffles me
Thanks guys

January FNSI

Sewing with friends is always fun
Thanks to the lovely Wendy for hosting
I achieved quite a bit but cannot show as SHHH it's a secret
So I will show you my rose instead
I was gifted this rose on the passing of my daughter
I can honestly say it never stops blooming

My neighbour has been doing Diamond painting. which I have been admiring, however I do not want to start another hobby (no room in my craft room for anything else)
Yesterday I found this owl going really cheap at a Garage sale
I just had to have him
He is all glittery and sparkly
I love my bling

Such fun to make and my craft room smells divine
Thanks again Fee for sharing and I look forward to your next inspirational make
You are very generous

Jan 2010 FNWF

Wow What a scorcher of a day Got to over 40
Not a lover of the heat at the best of times
I Joined the girls in some stitching for our first FNWF for 2019
I spent the day under the air conditioner stitching
I am trying to use up some scraps

I did end up completing this stitchery
Nice to join in with Cheryll and friends once again
I looked after this little fellow for a couple of days over the New Year period
Such a delight and growing up way to fast
He is trying to put my thong on his foot They learn so quickly
He will be celebrating his first birthday on Jan 29th
