FNSI

Now that the weather is warming up it is time to head back to the beach for my early morning walk and it was during this time one day last week that I had an inspiration for November's "Sun Bonnet Sue".   On arriving home and going through the many scrap boxes that have accumulated in my sewing room I found fabrics with beach balls, large and small shells and water ripples on them which when put altogether made up "Seaside Sue".


I also found some fabrics suitable for December's "Sue" whilst I was digging around in the scrap boxes which I have put aside for next month's FNSI.     Once I have decided on the fabrics to use it takes me about 3 hours to iron  the interfacing onto the fabric, cut out the shapes, iron them into place, then do a zig zag stitch around each piece before adding the next piece, do the quilting, then the binding.    One of these can be done quite easily over the course of a late afternoon/evening sewing time.

Thanks again Wendy for hosting another fun FNSI and it is time to  head over to Sugarlane Designs to see what others got up to last night.

I have a few other  ideas that I am working on at present and will be back with some photos soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Oh Karen, I love how your Seaside Susie turned out! Exercise is the best way to get the creative juices flowing....I have come up with some real gems while swimming endless laps at the pool! Your mind just starts soaring. I would like to invite you over to Bits'nBobs on Monday for Design Board Monday. This post would be just the ticket.
