Whirligig and Earth'n'Twig

yep... my stitching n sewing mojo back, let's hope my organisational mojo and get moving mojo is doing the same.
 I managed to complete this quilt top last night,
 I am really happy with the end result
 and I am so glad I put these little tabs on, thanks Sarah! - they really do add to the quilt ~ so quirky,
 and I am so loving the big print fabric, this was the inspiration for making this quilt
 even tho' I had to "ever so patiently" make all these little tabs, from all my scraps of course
check out Sarah's book, full of marvellous inspiration, I have already started working on " A Wing & A Prayer" - started in flight on the way to Perth a few weeks ago but have come to a ground halt until Fenella sends me some more of the fabric I am missing... Of course I  stock this book of Sarah's in my shop if you want a copy?
 and once that was done, I moved onto some hand stitching to put these blocks together - I took these to Perth as well, so finally catching up on most of my projects
just the embellishing now, maybe later today...
Rowing Man and I watched a movie on Earnest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn last night - really enjoyed it, fabulous movie with some great cinematics, and historical significance, detailing their lives together and war correspondence activities.. can't remember what is was titled however,
So pop on over here, and check out what other's managed for FNSI.
How was your Friday night?

So it was a good movie then?
I have recorded it, so must make time to sit still and watch it.

Maybe I might get some projects finished, if I just sat down for a while.

Must catch up

What a loud, boistrous quilt top, I love it, it's amazing and adding those tags is genius.
