October's FNSI progress and ooh-la-la, a Winner

Sorry for the delay.....I should have posted this last night, but a sick husband required my undivided attention.   He's getting better thanks to an 'old' family doctor, one who knows the symptoms for things they don't see in the surgery much these days.   After three years of seeing doctors and specialists, it just goes to show, an old head is sometimes the wisest!

Anyhoo, back to business........


...we had twenty-two lovely ladies partying on into Friday night, and some into the early hours of Saturday morning!  I got a little bit done, getting closer and closer to a finish on my 'Girls' Day Out' quilt with quite a bit of the applique getting finished and the outer borders.




I've started working on the last individual rose appliques, but I'll leave that for another day!

So....a winner?   But first, what is this month's prize?  I've left it a secret until now....


....some gorgeous threads and matching FQs......French-inspired!  Oui oui, tres chic!  

If you haven't had a chance to see what our lovely ladies got up to on Friday night, you can pop back {here} and see.    And don't forget to block next month's FNSI date into your diaries......we'll party again on Friday 18th November, with Sign-ups starting Monday 14th on the blog.  Just for fun....it will be  a Christmas-inspired prize.


But for now......our winner for this month is.........


CONGRATULATIONS


I'll be getting that off in the mail to you pronto!  In the meantime, pop back during the week and I'll show you how I did my applique on the 'cheap'!
