FNSI update

I've just been Frolicking along. 
You know I have a love/hate relationship with Frolic.
And right now I'm in the LOVE part.

I love sewing on this quilt. I've been putting the blocks together in rows and adding the thin sashing between the rows.
I did figure out that I measured some of the blocks in the sashing wrong. Yikes! So now I have quiet a few that I'll be ripping out, cutting and restitching. But at least I know what's wrong and why the blocks are not fitting together nicely.
I'll continue on for the rest of the evening then tomorrow I'll be helping Bruce re-organize and paint the garage.  What a job!  But I love him, so I'll willingly help him.  It's a good stay at home project. 

Have a blessed evening,

Finished the Pincushion

It's been a rough two weeks. 
I'm finally feeling better. 

I haven't done any sewing until today. Actually I haven't done anything, except laze around trying to get well. 

I had made this little pincushion on Feb 29th.  But then I got the flu and I finally was able to stuff and finished him today.
I have Frolic to work on which requires so much pinning! I needed a rather flat pincushion to stick pins in without worrying about hitting buttons or what-nots. I don't think his ears will trouble me much.  I do think his ears turned out so cute.  I sewed him up at work by hand. I'm not into that hand stitching much - I would rather machine stitch. 

At any rate, I finally felt good enough to sew ONE - yes just ONE sashing and now I have two blocks sewn together.  
I need to work on my taxes - and I'm hoping that I can get some more Frolic blocks sewn together this weekend. 

Stay well quilty friends
and Happy Stitching,
