FNSI

I was able to make an early start on my FNSI today and not feel guilty that I had planned to do some gardening because that plan was washed out due to storm cells and heavy rain so off to my dry sewing room it was.   I had time earlier during the week to rummage around in my  scrap baskets and collect  fabrics for February's Sun Bonnet Sue.

It was easy to pick the theme as Valentine's Day is celebrated in February so I have called Sue "Be My Valentine".

I even surprised myself and was able to FMQ a couple of hearts.   The photo below shows one of them.

I also finished off the pleating on the cushion cover and added on the outside border.  I need to take a progress photo of that one.

Thank you Wendy for hosting the first FNSI for 2016 and I look forward to being productive for the remaining 11.    I do have a list that I want to work through.      So it is time to go and do some blog hopping to see what everyone else is doing to start off the New Year.

Linking with One Monthly Goal 

  Happy sewing all
