Beautiful Montenegro

DH and I are currently slumming it in beautiful Montenegro.
This is a view from our hotel window.


I am busy taking lots of pictures to share with you when I'll return home.

FNwF

Thank you Cheryll for hosting yet another FNwF.
I somehow missed the last couple of these, but I did remember this month!

Friday evening I finished block no 17 of Les Fleurs du Mardi BOM, by Quiltmania magazine.



3 more blocks to go!

I was looking for a small and easy project to take on holidays with me and came across pretty embroidery kits by Nancy Nicholson .


                                                                                                                                                                             Very neat and easy to pack, the kit comes in its own cotton bag.  
The bag is a small project in its own right, a printed design by Nancy Nicholson.  
                                                    



















The autumn chill is here, but today we had some glorious sunshine, warm enough to stitch in the garden.
I embroidered my bag, using threads by Stef Francis .




Now I look forward to stitching what is inside the bag! 

I wish you all a very good week!

just small things

For some reason my sewing is not going very well at the moment, you know how it is, other things get in the way.

But I have 2 small pieces to show you.

You might remember that just before the end of the school holiday my granddaughter and I started a small wall hanging each, following one of Lynette Anderson's designs. 
It is a good project for a beginner, like my granddaughter - it is small enough as not to be scary, but using different techniques, patchwork, quilting, applique, little embroidery....
My granddaughter is still working on hers, school and homework getting in the way at the moment :-)
I have finished mine.



And another block, number 16, for Quiltmania's BOM, Les Fleurs du Mardi.




Enjoy your Sunday!
