No CoLouR

I was working on another quilt at the recent Wyee & Bathurst retreats... just sewing blocks.
Well I've laid them all out now & as I'm happy with their placement... I will start to add the sashing.
Yippee... can't wait to see this one completed.

Added Blocks

I decided NOT to add any sashing to my FaNcY SnowBaLL quilt... so I needed to make additional blocks to get to the required size. Luckily I had some "Fancy" fabric left over... although not nearly enough... but I managed to buy fabric that matched the colours perfectly... so yesterday I cut, sewed & pressed little pieces of fabric together.
Today I have an additional 26 blocks... ie., 13 x 9 patch & 13 x snowballs... which equates to another 2 rows.
I will continue making blocks for 1 more row, then it's just the borders left to add.
Thanks Wendy... for inviting me to FNSI... & ... you can visit all the bloggers over HeRe.

TwO PRoJecTs...

PiN CuSHioN:
I needed a skinny pin cushion for the machine I usually take to retreats... so I made one with a mat attached. It sits very neatly but more importantly securely under the machine... ready to be used at any time.
No slipping or moving... so it's GReaT.

HoT PaD:
I finished off another HoT PaD too...
Same as the other one... matching in fact... so I'm all ready for Xmas cooking now.
If you would like to make 1 or 2... I've added the FREE PDF to my side bar... under CRaFTy...
or you can simply click HeRe.

Christmas Gift

At October's retreat in Bathurst I finished 1 bag... with just the button left to sew on... but then I decided to add the initial A to the front & yesterday was that day...
Initial A added... ... button on...

Now it really is FiNiSHeD.

The original pattern is by  "JoyPatch"... from 2012... & it's called "Colour-n-Carry".

This is my item for November.
Thanks Narelle for the encouragement to make gifts for Christmas.

As I have a new kitchen it goes without saying really that I would need a new HoT PaD.
I like to use a pad under any HoT trays, saucepans or casserole dishes to protect the stone bench top.
I made this one in black, greys & lights with a spoon & ladle... & as it looks great on my new bench, I think I will make another one ASAP . 💗

HOW did your FNwF go ? ...        Accomplish what you set out to do ?
I'll be around to your place over the weekend to see your endeavours...

I've also added this item to my "BMP Challenge" list too...
