An earlier-than-normal FNSI sign up

Well hello!  and NO I did not wet the bed to be here this early for a sign up day!!! But yes, it is true, today I'm posting the sign ups for this month's Friday Night Sew In, one day ahead of schedule and unlike my form of late.
I AM trying to get myself better organised with things, but knowing me and my tendency to put my eggs in too many baskets (or maybe it's my Gemini tendencies....ooh look! another pretty thing!), I'm not thinking I will be very good at it....but I'll try!

I have been working on the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt-a-long and I'm up to block 7 which I'll do today as they are released each Sunday (here in Australia).
Here are my blocks so far...
I've been using a combination of French General 'Vive La France' and 'Aubade' by Janet Clare for Moda.
Why not join along?  All you need is the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book, which I got HERE, sign up to the facebook group and begin.  We do one block a week, which isn't too arduous, and it won't take too long to catch up...the blocks don't take that long (and I've been hand paper piecing them).
Hope you can join the meantime, let's get to those sign ups!
Can't wait to join you all this Friday night and see what you're all up to!

xox sugary hugs :o)


  1. I have had that book for a few years but have not had the right time to start it. I will watch you work on yours though and this will make me happy.

  2. I'm definitely in for this month's FNSI, got an Xmas quilt top which is nearly done

  3. I did 88 Slendid Sampler blocks awhile back Sew will give this one a miss. I'll enjoy watching your progress Wendy....
    Have lots of quilting to do so FNSI is very welcome....

  4. Enjoy "Farmers Wife" will keep you busy!

  5. Your Farmers Wife blocks are really pretty. I started that project with a quilt-a-long and fell off. Then I found another QAL, joined for a while again, and fell off. I really ought to finish this one up! I think I'm about halfway there! Lol!

    Looking forward to stitching with all on Friday! Thanks, Wendy, for hosting our party once more!

  6. You are off to a good start with your FW blocks. See you on Friday.

  7. Thanks Wendy. Great blocks. xx

  8. See you on Friday night Wendy - thank you!! Your blocks look great - I have the book but haven't sewn from it yet..!

  9. I forgot to sign up but I was with everyone in spirit, crocheting some clothes for a dress-up doll!

  10. Seeing your lovely FW blocks gave me the nudge I needed to join the fb group. It'll be fun!


Hi.....thanks for visiting and I'm glad you've stopped by to visit and leave me a comment. I'll try to reply each time, but if I don't, it's because I've been hijacked by the family.....know I've read it and it reeeeally warms my heart. *insert jiggly heart here*
sugary hugs :o)
