FNSI and Slow Sunday Stitching

Friday night was FNSI over at Wendy's blog, and I had heaps of plans for what I wanted to achieve. When I got home, I dished up a big slice of pizza and a glass of wine

I got my ready cut fabric pieces for Stargazer spread out over the dinner table ready to be glue basted to the paper

However that was about as far as I got before I got distracted by other things and the evening just went by. Yesterday I had big plans of getting back to them after doing some  bit of tidying in the spare room, but I was on duty at work, and whenever I got over to the table the phone would ring.

This morning I have prepped some more hexagons for this week's clue for Wintry Hexies - we'll see how much I get done... not stressing about this.

My seedlings are growing - over the last week the sweet pepper has come up, as well as one little cucumber plant:

Pop on over to Wendy's blog Sugarlane Designs to see what everyone got up to on Friday Night Sew-In. And to Kathy's Quilts to see what the bloggie peeps are doing for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Slow Sunday Resting with Hexagons

Yesterday a new clue for Wintry Hexies arrived in my email, and this week it's two long strips, each of 14 hexies - this is how far I got yesterday

The strips are to be attached to opposite sides of the project piece.

I have gotten started and will bring the remaining pieces out onto the verandah once the sun comes around the corner. 

Sunday a week ago I sowed some sweet pepper, cucumber and plum tomato seeds, and itty-bitty tomato plants have started to come up over the last couple of days  

Linking up with Kathy's Quilts and Slow Sunday Stitching, today reminding everyone to rest and give the brain some time to power down.

FNwF and Slow Sunday Stitching

Friday night was Friday Night with Friends over at Cheryll's blog, and I joined in the fun. Coming home from work I got a pizza in the oven and a glass of wine ready, and started prepping some hexies for the previous two clues for Wintry Hexies and started stitching. However I forgot to take pictures along the way... This morning I got the pieces for this week's clue attached - an this is how it is now looking

Probably the most colorful project I have done - but having fun stitching it :-)

Please stop by and see what everyone was up to friday night over at Gone Stitchin' and what is going on on Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday!

Stargazer Easter Sunday

Spending the Easter holiday at my parent's house, slowly stitching on my Stargazer project.  I have framed five of my six pointed stars, and make three of the connecting six pieced hexagons

So running out of pieces untill I get home, I have brought out some yarn and some knitting needles and started on an Easter yellow dish cloth

Wishing everyone a still Happy Easter and a wonderful Slow Sunday Stitching - linking up with Kathy's Quilts!
