FNwF

I had lots and lots of time today to make an early start on my project as we had some builders in doing some work so while they built I sewed.       When I walked past the builders on a few occasions from my sewing room to the main house I thought that sewing can be likened to building in many ways - measuring, cutting and fitting.  

Good progress was made on a new set of 6 placemats.   The panel was cut into pieces to separate the "pictures" , each was bordered, sandwiched and quilted.


Next job is to trim,  cut and stitch  the binding on which may or may not happen tomorrow depending on how quickly I get some of the "domestic duties" done.  

I have decided that this will be my OMG for November.

Thanks Cheryll for hosting another fun FNwF.

Back soon with some photos of my progress and in the meantime


Happy sewing all
