This is how I spent my FRIDAY NIGHT SEW IN.     FNSI.
I am taking part in a row by row Spring Quilt SAL with Deanna.
Have a look here at the blocks being made. If you sign up, make a block  you will get next months for free...
I have stitched house number 2 & 3.. They are not really spring but it just might be the Chang I make for this project...
No 2....
I still have to blanket stitch the windows and the roof. My window fabrics has a pin tuck in it so there is no need for me to stitch on them

House no 3...
It looks pretty dull at the moment but I think I will have to add some embellishing of flowers in the window boxes, a door knob and maybe some lace work on the roof line...
Boy there was a lot of little pieces in this one but very easy to put together. Just lay them all out and it will be ok...

These are my 2 blocks that I have made and hope to complete the row by the end of the month...

Today, Saturday, I spent at NOTY..
I caught up with Mel. 
Mel was doing wool felting and having a great time. 
I was learning how to use the Westalee templates for quilting.
We all had a great day. Concentrated sooooo hard.
I need so much more practice. WATCH THIS SPACE.
