FNSI Report

I had a great FNSI. First I made my two blocks for the Quilting Gallery " Sandy Quilt Block Drive ". I made two blocks that I'm sending to my team leader. She will  assemble the blocks that  I and other quilters are sending and turn it into a lovely and warm quilt to be donated to the victims of the super storm Sandy.

If you want you can help too. Just follow the link above and you'll find all the instructions needed.

The rest of the evening was dedicated to hand sewong. I've been making some applique blocks and this is the one I made last night. It isn't finished yet. The design is from Kim Diehl. I really love her work.

I appliqued the letter and blanket stitched around it. Also quilted around it and made some little stars ( they are almost invisible in the photo.)
 Added some free motion quilted hearts and...

 Voila´! It's finished and ready to go into my Xmas gifts cupboard.

Friday Night With Friends

I couldn't miss this one! Cheryll decided to host another Friday night sewing and I jumped into it.
I've finished my mail organizer.

I used some Moda fabric I had left and now I can organize my mail and my bills ( yuck). I'm going to hang it on the kitchen wall. Now there is no excuse for lost mail!

Christmas is just around the corner so I thought it was a good idea to make some gifts. I've started a Xmas pillow for a little girl. I didn't have time to finish it ,  I still have to applique her first name's letter on the center square.

I would like to have more to show you but yesterday I spent almost two hours on the phone with my dear friend Célia. She is back to Australia and we hadn't talk to each other since July. It was great to chat with her again.
Nevertheless i'm happy with the results and very excited to be a part of this new Friday Night with Friends! Thanks Cheryll.
