FNSI and a catchup

OK,  so it's been WEEKS since my last post and I am not going to bore you all with my excuses. Just know that I have been sewing, just not taken the time to post about it. Here is what I did while participating in Friday Night Sew In and a quick catch up.
Last night I started to sew the next border onto my A Legacy From Violet Quilt. This border is hard to see because it is blending into my floor boards, but is a border stripe print. It is very exciting to finally be at this stage. Those who have followed my progress with this quilt will know that I made a VERY large error and I am hoping that the steps I took to overcome this will work. (Click on the 'Label' on the right to see what I mean).

Once I have sewn these narrow borders on, I can add the next and widest border. Finished these about a week ago. It's finally growing !! There are 270 hexagons plus all the filler diamonds and half diamonds in this border. 
I'd like to finish with an apology to the OPAM team. I let the team down during February, not a single finish. BUT! I am on the ball for March. I finished this at a retreat with my friends Fairy Floss, Country Wishes-Kylie, Cardygirl and my non blogging freinds Caron and Julie on the first of March. If only 2014 was a leap year I would have scraped in with a few hours to spare. Oh well.

The needle case and pin cushion I made an age ago now have a home.

Hoefully I will be more organised and more regular with my updates from now on.
Happy Stitching!
