FNSI Results

Friday night started out with a nice dinner out with DH, during which we watched a summer storm.  The winds howled, the thunder boomed, and we got nearly an inch of glorious rain!  The end of dinner coincided with the end of the storm, so we hurried home for me to get to stitching.


I began by putting the final touches on these two BOM blocks.  I’m now ready and waiting for the August block.


Then I finished the postcard I made for a swap.  It was my first postcard, and I was a little hesitant, but now I can’t wait to make more!

This is all I can show until the recipient receives it.  My partner is a little more efficient than me, and I received my postcard in the mail today.  Isn’t this wonderful?

The flower is awesome – enlarge the picture to see it more closely.  Thanks Linda!

I also did some cross stitching on Santa’s Village.  I couldn’t fall asleep, so I got up and stitched well into the night.  I’m several months behind, and my goal is to be finished by the end of the year.

Earlier this week, I received my June Inchies from a different Linda.


I really must decide what to do with all my pretty pinkness.  Any ideas?

Today brought more storms, so we stayed home, and I stitched some more!  I’m working on a swap item, and I decided to make two of the same thing, so I’ll have one for myself.  Pictures to follow in the near future.

Good night, my kind friends . . . SunnyIMG_5130

  21. Hi Sunny! I can`t believe I missed this post. So glad you like the postcard I made for you. It sure was fun. Thanks for the little sneak peek. Can`t wait to see the rest.

  22. Define 'postcard'?
    Is it just fabric on card?
    Can you write on it?
