FNSI Results

Well, this week started out like last year.....where did it go????
Started Monday with work.....Tuesday I had to go and visit a new little great-neice...…
Welcome little Madelyn Rose to the world...here she is...24 hours old...isn't she gorgeous?
Such bright eyes, and a gorgeous shock of dark brown hair.....looks like she's been here before, doesn't it?  She was my Tuesday distraction!  Wednesday I had to run errands around town and Thursday, back to work again.  This afternoon I'm headed to the big smoke (Townsville) for a check up for Mr B's eye operation and seeing if they can do his other one.   He had a cataract removed and a lens inserted in his eye.....no pain whatsoever and it's been such an easy recovery for him, but I've had to play nurse with drops every day, 4 times a day and he's not allowed to do anything except rest. (When I die, I'm coming back as Mr B!)
Last Friday we had our first FNSI for the year and I promised I'd get organised with prizes and draws.  Before I show you, here is what I got up to.....

I was reorganising my sewing space to fit in my new toy......
never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd every own one but I saved and saved and saved and here she is, my sweety.
I added table risers to the legs of my cutting table so I could fit my shelves underneath and now it's at a more user-friendly height so that made me even more happy!  As you can tell though, I haven't had a chance to try her out but as Monday IS a public holiday, I might just have to give her a spin! 

I chose fabrics for my 'Bloom Sew a Long" with Cheryll .  We're following Lori Holt's original sew a long plan from 2016.....it's never too late and keeping true to form, I've picked my fabrics and got my templates but I haven't started yet (I WAS distracted a bit!) .   
Then we'll link up on Cheryll's blog the second and third Saturdays of the month sharing our progress.    I'll do catch up over the weekend!
I did get a little hand stitching done though.
I finished off the embroidery on this block, now to add the pieced blocks and then I'm up to the last one....getting close to finished. 
Now to the important part....our winners!  We had lots of fun with our Friday Night Virtual Stitchers and lots of  'work' was done.  You can see it all HERE.
I had Mr Linky randomly choose winners for November, December and January and here's how it went....
November winner 1:    Karen's Korner
November winner 2:  Rike@flickchensquilt
December winner :    Cheryll from Gone Stitchin'
January winner:         Nancy from Joy for Grace
  
Congratulations to all you wonderful ladies....thanks for joining in this month and beginning this year off with a bang! Send me your postal details and I'll get a little something off to you pronto.
Remember, lock the third Friday night of each month in for your FNSI fix.  You never know when your name will be drawn as a winner.  Regardless, we're all winners as we have so much fun stitching virtually with so many wonderful stitchers from around the globe...and we get more of our projects done!  Winner, winner!

congrats to your winners - what a sweet baby! you must be so excited - and what about that sweet machine - if I ever get something like that that is the kind I have thought about - one of my readers has one so I have been seeing hers for a couple years now. She loves her machine.

Your little Madelyne Rose is adorable!I'm waiting for the arrival for my first grandbaby in May. He's to be named Brodhi Charles - the Charles is my hubby's middle name so a nod to him.

I'm so happy to see you're joining us in the Bloomers SAL! It's been really fun so far, hope to keep up. You might be a slow started but sadly I'm a VERY slow finisher! Lol!

Congratulations to all the FNSI winners. You're right, Wendy, we're all winners because we get to have a dedicated evening once/month to sew with virtual friends! Thank you!!!!
