FNSI - August

Tonight DH, DD2 and DDBF (DD Boyfriend/Partner) went to the NRL footy - change of pace for DH as he is an AFL fan...but I digress..
So I had the whole night free - home early (so he could get to the match on time) and 
leftovers from last night for dinner.

Retreat is less than one week away (that would be 7 sleeps!!! YAY!!!) - I am still prepping projects - some are ready but I have one that I have been meaning to get off the list for ages - hopefully I will be successful and come home with a flimsy.

It's a a sashiko project - green ferns and plants.
I had to trim the blocks back to 15 1/2" and cut the sashings - isnt it scary cutting those first few blocks???...no spare blocks, no extra fabric - fortunately - after a lot of measuring and counting I got them done.   All packed.




I also had anther project to do some cutting for - its a bit of a secret so you will have to wait. And finally a bit of tracing ready for a new project that I will work on on Sunday.

I hope you all had a fun productive night.  Thanks to Wendy for keeping us motivated.

  5. Green is my favorite color. Trimming down large blocks (and cutting wide borders) is very scary for me too!

  6. Lovely to have a nice peaceful night - and sounds like you needed it, so that you could concentrate on your cutting! Lucky you, off to retreat - have a great time!! (And make sure you take plenty of projects, you wouldn't want to run out of things to do!)
