Fnsi results, winner and some news.

As I said in my previous post I was lucky enough to have my sister here with me for fnsi. We changed things up a bit tho. We crocheted!!!  We are even still doing it days later. Our dad has always crocheted and since he has been a bit under the weather he hadn't done much. But we did get to spend a fabulous day with him trying to learn some techniques. (see pic below of them hard at work on the couch)  It was heavenly.  We both finished a scarf by Sunday. YAY and even started on some granny squares too.

The winner for this months fnsi is:

Lastly the news------ Heidi and I have been co-hosting FNSI for 3 years.  We have made the tough decision to stop doing a monthly giveaway. (boo, hiss, sigh)  BUT We are still going do fnsi each month because we LOVE this event.  it gives us the push to sew.  Once in awhile we will do a surprise giveaway for special occasions.   cuz we love all of you loyal followers!!!

so here are a few pics from my night and weekend.

Friday Night sew in signups

I can't believe it's already time again for fnsi. Head on over to Heidi's blog at www.handmadebyheidi.com and put your name on the list.

My home Pc is messed up. I'm blogging via phone and it's annoying. I'm having a rough year I tell ya.

My sister is going to be in town so I'll get a sewing partner this month for fnsi.
Yay!!  Even though it will be nice to have a person to sew with we are dealing w some family medical issues. Not fun! But we are a close family and always there for each other so I know things will be ok.

It's not me....its my dad. But God gives you strength when you feel there isnt any left.
I'm hanging onto that.

Alright enough of the poor me :)

Can't wait to see what you all make!  See you Friday !

It's fall y'all

Autumn is here. Well kind of. In my neck of the woods it means we might cool down to the 90s. I take what I can get!

I made some fall decor this weekend. Courtesy of a pumpkin at michaels, some Martha Stewart craft paint and a dollar store candlestick.

I also wanted to show you a mug rug my sister made me. We have both loved bags since we can remember.  It's too cute to use for a sweaty cup so I hung it up for decor.

I'm still having computer issues uploading photos to my blog. For now my phone will have to do. But why does it put all the pics at the bottom?

Ps I  think fnsi is this Friday.  Heidi and I will have to post the signups tomorrow.
