My Friday night went a little green and gold!   I couldn’t find the Rolo chocolates in the rolls like they used to make…..has it been that long since I’ve eaten them?????    I did manage to find a bar of Rolo chocolate though…..phew!    And I experimented with the Mint Float…..all I can say is mm mmmmmmmmmmmm … yummo!!!!

I had my stitching all ready to go after dinner, and I really should have done some BEFORE I drank that float!!!!!   Yep, you guessed it…….there wasn’t a great deal of progress because for some reason, my glasses went foggy and I found it so difficult to push the thread through that teeny little hole in the needle!!!!!   And I was soooo tired!!!!!!!   Just can’t understand why!!!!???  Perhaps 1/4 cup of Creme de menthe is more than this little duck needs in one glass???  Perhaps!!!!

So I decided, like I do every FNSI, to continue my Friday on into the weekend and I wanted to begin this……

I haven’t done cross stitch for such a long time so I thought combining both quilting blocks and cross stitch might make a nice addition to my craft room wall.   If you haven’t seen it around, you can pop on over to Corey’s blog and the links to the Quilty Stitches Sampler Along are still available.

Little Miss Shabby

She’s up to block 5 so we’re not too far behind.

I decided I’d start with the borders before I go into block 1, which is the Swoon block!!!!  Can’t wait!!!!!!  They’re only 1 3/4 inch blocks too so it’s not going to take too long to catch up.

Well, I’m off to visit some of our 50+ FNSI-ers to see what they’ve been up to.  One of them will be winning this gorgeous kit, supplied by the equally gorgeous Fee.

The hexi craze was started again at the Melbourne Lets Get Stitched so I thought this might just be the most appropriate prize.  And as you know I’ve been stitching them up too.  They’re such a breeze to stitch up and they’re quick and fun……I’ve got a stack of them just waiting to be made into something!!!!!

Fee has lots of other goodies in her Shabby Shack ….I’d suggest you pop on over for a visit at some stage…some lubberly shabby goodies in there…hard to resist!!!!

Remember to post about your Friday night for your chance to be in the draw, which I will do tomorrow (Monday) night (my time).

I might try that fabulous green drink.

Then I continued on Saturday making scrappy blocks.

Your stitchery is lovely but I think the star of the night would have to be the Mint Float - oh the mind boggles just thinking what other liquery thingies could be added!!!
