FNSI

I signed up again to take part in FNSI but I have to admit that I had to make mine Thursday NSI as I was having my little visitor again on Friday night and whilst she is a very good helper when I make the bed, water the garden,  put out fresh towels in the bathroom  and tidying up I do not think that she is quite ready  to help in the sewing room yet.

So with that in mind I had already made a start on my next themed table topper - March being St Patrick's Day - I was able to finish it off and have it ready to post today.



I had made one very similar for mum a few years ago and had some of the shamrock fabric left.   I always think that green is a very cool and refreshing colour and enjoy sewing with it.

I am still ploughing on with my bedtopper and it is up to the border stage at present.   One day I will have some photos to show that it actually exists other than lots of strips of fabric cut and waiting to be sewn together.

I am now going to head over to Sugarlane Quilts and see what everyone else got up to last night while I was settling  bub down to sleep.

Back real soon with a few ideas that I was kicking around whilst walking the floor and in the meantime happy sewing all.

I like the table topper!!! Although I often promise myself to try another colour my stash is heavy on green ... as you say, it is restful:)
Little 'helper' will be all over the place now. It won't be long until she is helping sew as well

Love the topper! St Pats day is only round the corner too the way the year is already flying by. Have fun with your 'little helper' they grow up so fast. I have one heading off to uni on Monday! I don't know where the time has gone.

Love the table mat. Clever finding that fabric. Maybe your little helper will learn lots about sewing just watching you and become a super stitcher one day.
