FNSI....

I was lucky enough to be able to make an early start on my FNSI today and decided to post my efforts early.    I did finish off my June Sunbonnet Sue a few days ago and with the fabric that was used on her dress I thought I would make a matching tabletopper today.    Each month I am picking a theme for Sunbonnet Sue and for June I went with Winter Solstice so all the fabric  has a lunar theme.  
So here is Winter Solstice Sue

And the photo below shows the tabletopper with the same theme


While I was rummaging around in the ever increasing pile of scraps I have picked out the fabric for the next couple of  Sues.

If you would like to see what everyone else who signed up for FNSI got up to last night then just follow me over to Wendy's blog for a "look see".   Thank you Wendy for hosting another fun night or in my case a fun day of sewing.

Tomorrow hubs and I are putting on our "grandpa and grandma hats"as we are having bub for the day while her mummy and daddy have a few things to do.  Hopefully the weather will be fine so that we can go to the lake and see the ducks as well as give her a push on her trike.    The trikes that you buy today are such an improvement on the ones that my kids had over 30 years ago.   Now they come with those  lovely long handles attached to the back which make it so much easier to push seeing that those little feet are unable to reach and  operate the pedals.

Happy sewing all

I like that each sunbonnet sue has a monthly theme.....which also happened to make a lovely tabletopper! Have fun in your grandparent hats.

Love the way you have used that theme in the Sunbonnet Sue project. Clever. Your table mat is equally lovely. Hope you had a fun day .
