Friday Night Sew In February

Last night was the FNSI for February and I actually managed to join in a little.  I did have Elsa with me though but it did mean I could help her set up an appliqué table runner she had found in one of the magazines I brought back from Australia.  It's all fused down and she has started the buttonhole stitch.

I so love the Australian magazines!  I wish I could go back soon and add more!  They far outstrip any magazines from UK or America and are just always packed with things to make.

I then actually managed to make a start on a piece of Gold work I bought as a kit and totally forgot about.

My new workroom has a dehumidifier in it sucking all the water out so hopefully Andy will be able to lay the floor sometime next week.  Stuart the electrician is on standby with the plugs and lighting and the blinds are being made.  I could actually see next weekend as being a possible!!!!

Andy did come back from the builders merchants with an 8 x 4 foot x 50mm (love those combo measurements) sheet of Celltex insulation foam for my design wall.  He said there was a pile about 5 foot high and he went right through most of them to try and find the straightest one.  Bless him, he's done really well working with a frustrated crafts-person continually pacing around!   I have the wadding ready to cover it too so that will be a nice stage to pass very soon. It's lurking out of the way at the moment so it doesn't become damaged.

Elsa and Mike leave us today but we have Chris and Becks arriving for lunch first. This evening I will catch up on some DMTV and see what the Kemshall's have been up to.



  1. How wonderful to be getting so close to completion! I am sure you are just itching to get things settled in!

  2. Great news that the studio is well on the way. What a treasure Andy is. Lovely colours in the table runner.

  3. I love the darling applique table runner... it's going to be gorgeous!

  4. Beautiful Applique - great FNSI!

    Angie -

  5. I've never seen gold work before. It's going to be beautiful.

    And so is the applique.

  6. Sorry it took me so long to catch up this month... but nice work on both projects. Well done! :)

  7. I believe that you can't wait until your crafts room is done.
