FNSI report

hi all!
i was very happy to get some good sewing in last night for FNSI.  I did it all on the couch due to aforementioned little human injury :) but still got some good hand work done

i finished all the blanket stitch around the puglet's jungle quilt animals.  i still have the lettering to go, SO fiddly!  but all good.  i haven't bothered with pictures because i haven't attached any more fabric or anything yet, so they don't look exciting :)

but i did manage to attach all the binding to the little human's first quilt to be used as a quilt!  this is it - he 'picked out' the fabric at our LQS and then just added some green triangle print to break it up (he wasn't keen at all when i cut into his beloved fabric!!! but he came around when he saw the quilt top finished)

here it is all finished!  we are preparing to transition him to his big boy bed sometime after puglet arrives (we have a bassinette in the meantime) and i am hoping that a quilt made with love from mum will help (fingers crossed!)



anyhoo, hope you had fun too

pugs and kisses
