At FNSI

which is hosted by Wendy... at Sugarlane Designs found over HeRe... 
I finished free motion quilting a Xmas project. 
I should have a finished project by mid week.

Days for Girls...
I pulled out small scraps in dark colours & made a few "pockets" for the shields.
In fact, I made 36 in total.

Then I used my overlocker to make ready a few carry bags for this project too.
I actually finished 2 but should have another 4 finished over the weekend.

RSC 2021 has started... & Angela from So Scrappy chose... Pink...
I started by making 1 Friendship Star block... 
repeated it 3 times... 
then framed all 4 blocks together...
I used a "different" squaring ruler to trim HST blocks & on first use I miss cut a few, hence some points are slightly OFF.

DuRinG the HoLiDaYs

I decided on my MaNTRa for 2021 & it's...
Doing It For The Kids...
I hope to make child friendly quilts for either the local hospital OR the various community Charites, Refuges or Organisations that need a helping hand.
I've already started working on one this month... 
& you'll see it below...

* * * * *
In my stitching cubbyhole...
I only grabbed small amounts of time - here & there -  
BuT I did manage to get a few things ✅ on my list...

In December I volunteered to make a charity quilt from a donated kit.
It's called My Garden by Homestead Selection & it definitely has a country feel.
I made a start & block #1 was quickly finished... 
On another day... block #2 was prepared & then blanket stitched...
During an afternoon visit...   the appliquΓ© on block #3 was fused in place...
* * * * *

I was excited last Tuesday when I won a prize in the Guild raffle... yippee...
Four gorgeous "dotty" fabric lengths... so I'm over the moon...😁
* * * * *

I also managed to put together another 3 rows of TriDazzle too...
I'm really happy with how it looks so far...
* * * * *

THeN... last night at FNwF... I worked on Snuggle Bears
It's my first 2021 project for "Doing It For The Kids" & it's also my WOOFA project.
I hope you enjoyed stitching along with me if you made it over to my place...
IF NoT... then enjoy the break & I'll see you next month... on Friday, Feb 5th.

WeLCoMe back WOOFA


WeLCoMe to 2021... & another year of WOOFA... but with an addition of "P's".

You can read all about WOOFA... HeRe... 
and you are most WeLCoMe to join in anytime too.
If you're interested in joining &/or
 you would like to receive encouragement or reminder emails... 
please leave a comment OR email me directly.
I would LoVe to have you inspire me each month too...

HeRe We Go...

I finished many of my UFO's in 2020 so decided to expand the WOOFA concept 
to include any Project ideas /Patterns / Publications OR  Problems... 
that I've stored, horded, collected... & hoped to make one day.
I like the fact that I will FiNaLLy use a few of these dust collectors collectables. 
Of course any UFO can still be included too.

My first choice is to use a Publication (book) I've owed for a few years... 
Happy Quilts by Antonie Alexander... 
which includes a really CuTe pattern for a child called...
Snuggle Bears.
This will be another charity quilt that I hope a little one will LoVe... 
BuT who knows where it will end up.

WOOFA's a WRaP

I would like to thank AND congratulate all the "woofers" who played in this challenge each month.
Without you, I personally wouldn't have as many "finishes" or improvements to projects without your involvement.
SO a huge THANK YOU is being sent your way...😍


FoR December...
I placed my "Flower Trellis" quilt on the design board 😡... 
& added a few more "flowers"...
After blanket stitching the newly added flowers to RoW 1... 
I cut ALL the sashing strips & then pieced them into lengths... joined the background pieces... then added the sashing & colour strip & assembled RoW 2...
Next I cut out leaves, flowers & bugs ready to be added after I attach the vine.
It's NoT a finish for the month BuT it IS an improvement... so I'm very HaPPy.


This will be our last WOOFA challenge link party for 2020... 
BuT I hope to see you all back again in 2021.

WOOFA will have a little "make-over" too.
