FNSI and a weekend of stitchy bliss

Time is flying…again!  Where does it go…it seems only a day or so since I’d posted but there are real tell-tale signs that it’s been a tad longer than that!!!!  I have been busy, I promise!!!  I was even late to lock into the Friday Night Sew In, but….just in the nick of time, I was!

Well, Friday night saw me finish off the stitchery for block 10 of A Long Time Ago in Bethlehem…..I learnt I could take a panoramic photo with my Iphone so I tried it to show you the whoooooole block…it’s a biggie….…

I also managed to get some little girls prepared for stitching…

ok…hand up….who thought I was teaching kiddlywinks to stitch??? LOL   Not this time….. These ‘girls’ will have a job to do but I’ve a bit more to do to them before they’re ready to go to their new homes.

I’ve done a lot more over the weekend….but I can show you only a sneaky peeks…. done and dusted…..

Love those sheep and the girls are gorgeous. Birthday love stash - hmm. Still coming for this month - I have started things but none finished yet.
And then I can only show sneaky bits of them.
