A New Year...let's F.N.S.I.

 Welcome to 2021, and to our (hopefully) new and improved F.N.S.I.

I've made a couple of changes, just so that we can share more readily, get to know each other better, and generally have more fun!  It's been on the backburner for quite a while, bubbling about in the brain cells, but I just wasn't sure how I wanted our little group to progress (or indeed if I wanted it to).

Well, I've bitten the bullet and we now have a new Facebook page where we can share, as well as our blogs.  I still love sitting with a cuppa,  reading through blogs leisurely without the annoying and ever-constant refreshing of Facebook posts however I still think I need to bring us up-with-the-times.   With our group consisting of stitchers from all across the globe, I think it's only fair that we can share instantly if we wish and then go and read more about it later on using the links you add when you sign up each month in this blog.

I have sent a few 'regulars' an invitation to join the Facebook group.  It's a private group so it can't be seen by anyone other than those in the group but it can be found by anyone (although they wont be able to see content) and will have to 'apply' to join.  If you don't get an invitation, the link to join is HERE and I encourage you all to as it will be immediate gratification for all of us, not to mention loads of fun!

The sign ups will still link to your blogs for the same reasons I mentioned above.  They're our 'homes' where we can relax and enjoy visiting others in our own good time.

I'm also reinstating the random prize of the month to one lucky participant.  It won't be anything flashy as it is coming out of my pocket....I don't have sponsors but hey, if anyone out there is interested..........?????........just putting it out there!    

 This month I have a beautiful notebook to jot special notes that inspire you, plan your FNSI's or perhaps even design some upcoming projects.  I love it's inspirational cover and I'm sure our winner this month will love it too.

So, without further ado, welcome to F.N.S.I. version 2021, link your blog up below, sign up to the FB page and let's plan to get this party started this Friday night!

xox big sugary new year hugs :o)

Happy New Year Wendy. I'm looking forward to another year of FNSI. Great idea with being able to do an instant post on facebook. xx

My word - getting all modern!!! LOL
And lovely of you to offer prizes...though I think most of us take advantage of this to make sure we do a post from time to time!

See ya Friday!

Is it really FNSI on Friday? Glad you've decided to keep it going and kept it on the blogs too

Hi Wendy, thanks for hosting again and for adding me so promptly to the FB group. I have just posted there and on my blog. Plus I am having a little giveaway, too. So, feel free to enter. ❤️ Kaye

P.S. Wendy, I found that a couple of the links above did not work for me - anyone else have that problem?

Susan said...

I will try to join on the blog more often this year, but I won't be doing FB, as I detest it. LOL I blog. That's it. Everyone I know who moves something over to FB winds up being there permanently and not anywhere else.

Have a great time tonight. I didn't see this soon enough - my fault, not anyone else's. =)

Thank you Wendy! I am in the states, so don't send any prizes to me. It will cost too much. I just want to join in the sewing part.
