A Heartfelt Freebie for FNSI-ers

A sneaky peek it is......
here is your freebie design I'll be sending you (as soon as I write the pattern this morning).

Inspired by all the horror happening in the world at the moment, I penned a sweet design called "Share the Love", featuring Natalie Bird's of the Birdhouse new fabric range - "Heart and Home"....suits it perfectly don't you think?
I'll be sending it out to all those who have linked up to join in with us for FNSI this evening.  

If you don't have a blog, that's ok, link up your Facebook page, or your Instagram so we can all come and join in on the fun.  It's always a blast!
Link up details are here, so pop back and join in....you'll enjoy it, I promise!
See you there,

Girls Day Out progress

I've been working on Libby Richardson's "Girls' Day Out" for a friend....I'd always wanted to do it, but never ever got around to it with all my grand plans and new starts.
So a friend of mine said she had started it but lost interest.....so what's a girl to do?  Of course, 
I offered my services!!!!
Here's the progress so far.....
Maree (my friend) had stitched most of this block already and I just had to finish the smaller things in the shelves, so thought I'd tackle this one first.
Then I went on to the Cafe and Florist blocks.....finished those two, and a few smaller blocks, and I'm very happy with the results....
Now I'm working on this one.....
....the teddy shop block.   Once that's done, I've got a few more smaller ones to do before I can start putting it all together.  
It's exciting, don't you think......watching something grow, from an idea, to a plan, to a finish?  

I'm usually not too good at the finish part *insert groan*   You see, I'm a Gemini, so I'm constantly on the lookout for new and exciting things, which includes new and exciting projects.....a dilemma I'm trying to get a grip on (you'd think I'd be better at it after 51 years!).

So this is my plan for Friday Night Sew In.....to get a bit more progress on the Girls' Day Out so I can see a completion before the year's out.  

What do you have planned for FNSI?  Have you signed up yet?  Link up your blog or FB page here to join in the fun and you'll receive a free new stitchery design from me.
I know I said the design would be a surprise and I wouldn't show it beforehand but I'm so excited to show you I thought I'd sneak a picture on my blog tomorrow...just so you know! (I'm a horror like that!)
have a wonderful hump day

July Signups for FNSI

What a crazy year this is......I still can't get my head around it being July already!

And I really haven't achieved anything significant so it almost seems wasted.  Time to reconnect and recollect my thoughts, plans and dreams for my blogging and designing and

First things first,....

Sincerest apologies for missing our date last Friday night....I knew FNSI was coming up but in my head we'd only just got together 'the other day' so I was SURE I had at least another week up my sleeve.  I hope you'll still consider joining with me this Friday night for our monthly virtual get together?

If you haven't joined us before, all the info is HERE but it's seriously simple......just link your blog below, share all about it with everyone and together on Friday night, we all stitch or sew in our own homes, in our comfy jammies, watching movies (or if you're like me...Better Homes and Gardens!) in front of the fire/heater/aircon (depending on where you are) with a nice comforting beverage and some very forgiving chocolate!   Enjoy everyone's 'virtual' company by sharing your progress over the weekend on your blog/FB page/Instagram with hashtag #FNSI , and feel the love and encouragement from all your fellow crafters.

I'm humbled to say, we've even encouraged some new and 're-newed' crafters  into their chosen therapy through sharing our FNSI......just gotta LOVE it!

And don't forget there's always a special prize for one lucky participant.....sometimes even for ALL participants!

This month all who sign up will receive a new, free Sugarlane stitchery design which you may like to stitch on Friday night for yourself, as a gift, a design for a bag, or a cushion .....possibilities are endless.  But it's a surprise!!!! So you won't know until you sign up.....then I'll reveal all!  I'm cheeky aren't I?

So, what are you waiting for.......see you Friday!
