FNSI and Saturday

I am very happy with my 'makings' from Friday Night Sew In.....
got the snacks organised...yum!!!!  Sugar overload here we come! Lol!!

Thursday night I free range quilted this fabric ready to make into a bag...

..but also did some secret sewing....this seam had to be unpicked THREE times!!!! AGHHHHH!!!!....

got the backing and fabric ready for the secret sewing, while avoiding the seam that will not match up....I am the best at procrastinating!! Tee hee!!

DH wandering through while watching the footie.....

third time unpicking......sob!!

but the good news is that I finished the bag, but the nougat is nearly gone.....

and I have pinned this seam again.....enough pins you reckon?????  Going to nail this sucker this time!!  And I am pleased to say it worked!! Phew!!! Finally!!!

And today I finally finished the free range quilting on the table runner and machine sewed the binding on...now for the hand sewing...maybe only in the day time as I find it hard to see the black cotton at night. Very happy to get this finished...now off for the next project!

Oh don't forget to zip over to Wendy's and see what the other FNSI people got up to.

Happy sewing!
