So even though I forgot to sign up for it, I did remember to join in for FNSI! Pop over here to Wendy's blog to see what everyone else got up to.
I carried on working through the epic Disney cross-stitch. I don't want to jinx myself, but I feel like it won't take me the five years that Beauty and the Beast took me!
At the request of one of my sisters, I counted how many colours left to go - 27! That doesn't feel too much. Then there is backstitching and french knots to go...But we're getting there. I was back to some dreaded brown, but it is a lot of gap-filling so feeling very satisfying. It's also quite a 'big' colour, so it'll progress the project nicely. Here's a little comparison shot of some of what I did on Friday.
FNSI also coincides nicely with International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching and over on Facebook. Any excuse for me to get some sewing done! I have spent Saturday and Sunday slowly working through a baby quilt using the beautiful Walk in the Woods design from Dashwood Studios. Saturday was spent making pinwheels, which I haven't done before. There was a good length of time spent trimming all the corners off the triangles - such a satisfying little pile!
I'm also quite chuffed with how neat some of them came out:
Sunday was spent squaring off the pinwheels, working on the rough layout and starting to sew the quilt together. I got further than I had intended and now have 12 nine patches ready to make disappearing! Or I may just leave them as it is and enjoy the half patterned, half random layout. I shall have a think before I cut or sew anymore!
I also honoured the weekend by heading out on one of my semi-regular runs wearing my crafty leggings!
Whoops I seem to have missed a Sunday! Sorry in advance for all the comments you will get - I'm using my week off wisely and catching up...
