FNSI results......

I had a great time sewing last night and got quite a bit done although not as much as I thought I would. I don't know why I always think I will get lots done as I have learnt over time that if I hurry, I make mistakes and I really don't like to unpick, so slow and steady it is. Anyway I worked on my Aiming for Accuracy blocks. Way, way behind and have 6 blocks to make now to catch up.  I had 5 blocks cut out so managed to stitch all the pieces together and cut them apart ready to make up the blocks. The photos below show Block 3 ready to stitch together and just a few more blocks to cut to size and Block 4 will be ready for stitching too. The 3rd photo shows the next three blocks ready for trimming (my least favourite part ).



 I was a bit sick of trimming half square and quarter square triangles after a couple of hours so I decided to finish the night off by doing a bit of embroidery on one of my group's Friendship Quilt blocks, a red work stitchery.
Hope everyone else had a productive night. I enjoyed stitching with you all and am looking forward to checking out what everyone else was working on.
A big thank you to Wendy for hosting FNSI for another month.      
Till next time.........  Happy Stitching..........
