FNSI fun and a November winner

Friday night came and went so quickly....as I've said, I have been soooo tired with work taking all of my time, so Friday night didn't see much happening....but I did get a little done for FNSI.....

I managed a little stitching for some Christmas gifts and finished some up over the weekend.

I'd bought the latest issue of Leanne Beasley's 'Vignette' from Janeene at Fabric Patch so I started the night by thumbing through it whilst I nibbled on some goodies and drank a lovely drop of.......decaf!

Janeene  tucked in this cute little Gail Pan design so I thought I'd stitch it up in a few of my favourite Cottage Garden Threads
I'll make these up into four cute little pincushions to pop in with some Christmas presents.  They're such fun to stitch.

Have you popped back to link to the other ladies that joined in on Friday night to see what they got up to?  There are some beautiful creations, I'm still visiting and plan to see them all this week.

Are you wondering who our winner is for November's FNSI?  The person who is going to win this pack of Big Love?
If you are one of the 30 who joined in on Friday night, you've got a good chance........
drumroll please.............

winner is..............

Val Spiers 

I love your "I love my Cat Quilt"......and I'm sure you'll be able to add the lovin' mice to the menagerie!  Send me your postal details in an email and I'll get it into the mail for you.

Thanks everyone for joining in this month.....next month is not that far away and FNSI for December is (obviously?!?) the last for 2016 so I'd love to see you join us.  Pop the date in your diaries so you don't forget........FNSI for December is on the 17th......one week and one day before the big man heads off on his V.I.Deliveries.  I think I'm on the nice list????? *fingers crossed*   Are you?

November FNSI sign ups

It's been a slack ol' time here in the Sugarlane household, sewing-wise this past month.....
My boss has been away having her knee reconstructed and I've had to step up and take the reins whilst she's recovering....this full-time work gig has passed it's prime, I tell you!

The money's ok, but I a-m  e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d by the time I get home, my back is sore, my feet are sore, my neck and shoulders feel like they're in a vice and my knee has swollen up and is throbbing by the end of the day.  Thank God it's only for a few weeks and I can retreat back to my 'normal' routine.....I'm just praying I'm not doing any permanent damage to MY knee in the meantime.....however, on the upside, with all the walking up and down the shop and back and forward to the bank every day, I am getting fitter! (not slimmer, just fitter!)  And unpacking all the Christmas stock IS fun.....

And I do have something to look forward to this week.....Friday Night Sew In!   I'm sooo looking forward to it.  I'll have to make sure I have everything set so I can start as soon as I get home after work......will you join me?
Sign ups are below, so just link up and share on your pages, linking back here so we can have a H-U-G-E night.   My favourite night of the month because I get to share it all with you (and hopefully get something finished!)

Come back tomorrow night and see what prize there is on offer this month.  One lucky person will be winning it, I wonder if it will be you?
