12"Mini Swap, FNSI, Sunday Stitchers Meet.

I can now show the 12" Mini I sent to O'faigh in the June swap. I received an email last week to say the parcel has been opened  so I can post some photos of what I sent.


The hanging with some chocolate and a  mini charm pack.

Thank you to Cheryl (our Swap Mumma) for providing us with a label to add to the back. I hand-stitched mine.
For FNSI, I worked on my Gossip block for this month. I'm afraid I did a lot of unpicking as I tried to make my Periwinkle blocks. This is the first time I have made these using the template pattern provided and I soon learnt that precision cutting and stitching is required to make sure they fit together nicely. I ended up getting three that I was happy with so these were joined together to make up the bottom row. I also finished off the stitching on the other blocks. Now only 13 more star blocks to go. Wish me luck.

A big THANK YOU to Wendy for again hosting FNSI.
Early on Sunday, I headed off to our Sunday Stitchers Group meet at Ormeau.
We had a few people unable to attend due to various reasons but it was still a great day. The noise level was definitely on a par with other days. It was Debbie's Birthday so here she is opening her Birthday Fat Quarters.



Of course, Birthday cake was the order of the day.


This is a little mini Cheryl brought for show and tell. It is made with a very small twister tool using a mini charm pack. It was so cute.
Thanks Maree for organizing another lovely day and thanks to everyone for your wonderful company.

Well must close now. This post has taken forever to do. My computer has been so slow tonight.
Till later.........  Happy Stitching.........
