FNSI Results

Happy St Paddy's Day.  I wish I had corn beef and cabbage cooking in a pot.  But Hubby does really like that dish.  I Know!  I'll call my daughter and invite myself over like she did me with the Tamale Pie.  She usually makes that on Saint Patrick's Day.

On to FNSI Results...  WHOOHOOO!!! IT'S DONE!!!
The lighting was very poor last night.  And it's just as bad today because it's pouring, but here's the picture of my binding completely finished.
While I was sewing on the binding I had a little surprise. Sugar crawled under the quilt and popped her head out to sit with me while I sewed.
I'll take some pictures of the quilt all spread out when the lighting is better.

I also want to tell you about this product that was recommended to me.  It's called Thread Heaven. It's a thread conditioner and protectant.  
Okay admittedly this is a really poor product picture.  But the product works great! 
I ran my thread across this waxy stuff and it made it so much smoother as I sewed. There is glitter on it to make it pretty and fun. It helps the thread not to tangle.  I love this stuff and will continue to use it.  I was able to sew so much faster.  I highly recommend this.

Happy Stitching,
Nicey Linda

  2. Your quilt looks really pretty even in poor light. And you are correct about Thread Heaven being a great product. I have used it for a couple of years. Terrific little box of magic.
