Delayed FNSI report but I have a reason....and a winner!




I'm sorry it's taken me so long this month....but my extended FNSI aka EWSI lasted a little longer than expected and the draw was placed (temporarily) on the back burner..

You see, my 21 and a half year old *little* boy had been talking about moving down south to Toowoomba to go to university and to find some work as there is very little here in the north and he made the decision to move this week!  All week he's been finalising first term study and assignments and  packing his gear up.
He packed the car this morning with all his worldly possessions and drove off for his 1300km trip this morning and I must add, I had a tear (or two) in my eye.  I know it's time for him to spread his wings and fly but boy, my heart's feeling it tenfold!

I'm praying his trip is safe and that he gets there safely, that's all.  I know he's equipped to get through the rest of his life, heaven knows we've been through some trials and tribulations, and he's come through those unscathed, but driving all that way on his own will be a challenge.  Ah well, I suppose now I have a new sewing room to set up! *cheeky smile*

So back to FNSI......I'm sorry too, I didn't get to visit much and plans I'd made didn't come to fruition. although I did get some stitching done and one finish!

My Easter bunny blessing was stitched and hooped and I'm really happy with him.  Didn't get to get it in my shop but that will be coming, so at least it will be something you can stitch for next year if you didn't receive it as a free gift for joining in on EWSI/FNSI this month!

I also managed to get a couple of blocks done in The Splendid Sampler....still a way behind but catching up slowly.

To see what everyone else got up to over their long weekend, pop back here to check out their links!


Now for the  moment you've been waiting for........

and if you look back to the links....that's this person......



congratulations 
SUE
If you get back to me with your address, I'll post your "Tassie Trip" inspired prize!

I hope you all enjoyed our extra long FNSI this month....can't wait to do it all again next month....and maybe I'll be doing it in my "new" sewing room! *wink* 

xox Sugary hugs :o)

Thank you Wendy..will be in touch!!! Thank you for hosting FNSI! I hope your son arrived safely and is settles in the big smoke. Is always hard to see them go even when we know it is their time. Both ours have flown the nest too, it is wonderful when we get to have a visit but a bit sad each time they go back to their homes too. Your Splendid Sampler blocks are looking wonderful.

Hey Wendy! Hope your 'little boy' has packed his winter woollies cos it gets pretty darn cold here on top of our 'hill'. :0) If you happen to toodle down this way to check up on him, let me know and we'll catch up for cuppas and stitching. :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS xx

Hard to let them go as a mother (and/or father) but so important to let them spread their wings. I wish him all the best at University. My eldest son and his wife live not far from there, in Roma - he is teaching there - and I miss them terribly.
