The FNSI, was the first chance I have had to take time, wind down, and play, in my new sewing room.

I started with this...

I thought it was a worthy occasion to celebrate.  It was the first stitch I had sewn in over 6 months and it was the maiden voyage in my new sewing room (it is worthy of a post all it's own!).  However, I worked on an "old project." 

It was not as productive, as I had hoped.  After sewing in my head all day but, needless to say I have an itch for more. I worked on sewing blocks together to make rows. It was a bit frustrating as I thought I knew where I had left off and had to rip out a few seams after realizing I was not putting it together correctly.

All my rows are complete and now I can assemble them together but, first I need to get the monogram that will go here.

I am thinking red will pop the berries in the holly, quite nicely.


  1. This is a good start, welcome back to sewing and blogging again. Your new house looks great from the outside.

  2. Welcome back! Glad things are back to normal and hopefully you'll start sewing more. :-)

  3. Slow and steady and you will be back int he full swing of sewing again :o) Lovely progress

  4. I'm glad you're back sewing and blogging! You've been missed!! Your quilt top is delightful! I think one I have here to quilt is similar or perhaps same fabric? Love the colors!!
