FNSI Results(ish)...

Friday Night Sew-In for May rolled around last night here in the Southern Hemisphere...an opportunity to get some more work done on my version of the Stitch-A-Long quilt, Anni Downes' Some Kind of Wonderful...I had actually done a heap of the applique work over the last week or so having granted the project box resident status on the kitchen table (aka next to the heater!) and while I still have some applique blocks to finish preparing and stitch down last night's focus was to press, iron stabiliser to the back of and draw stitchery portions of the designs for the blocks I have already appliqued...

There are 23 applique blocks in total and 16 are now residing in the block keeper, ironed and marked ready for embroidery...I'm happy with that effort...and the remaining 7 are all in various stages of the applique portion being prepared and/or started...

There really is way too much mess to even attempt to set up a photo shoot...so I'm not going to bother...

Thanks to the Hostesses with the Mostest Heidi & Bobbi for the nudge to get some stitchy time in...

Happy Stitching...

Prep work often makes me feel I'm not really getting anywhere and then BAM...you're on your way.

Sounds like you had a great FNSI. I havent done one in ages...really must get off my butt and do something for the next one.

Good on you, the prep is often the hardest thing.... great effort for FNSI.

Now you're ready for more stitching by the fire on the cool nights ahead.
Fabulous effort.
