A Whole Lot of Not Much

Did you FNSI last night? I've got it in my head that everyone pronounces it "fin-see." Am I right?

FNSI is the monthly Friday Night Sew In hosted by Bobbi and Heidi. It's a superb idea for anyone who wants to: 1) squeeze some me-time out of each month for sewing and quilting; 2) know she's not sewing alone. Just think of all the quilters out there doing the same thing, at the same time you are! and; 3) as a bonus, has a chance to win a really nice gift by simply showing off what you worked on that evening!

Though I was in my sewing room for most of Friday, I don't have much to show for my efforts. Too much cutting, and too much flitting... from one project to another. None of them are finished.
3-1/2" X 5-1/2" rectangles for part 5 of Friendship Medallion quilt.
The cake slice needs some more decorative sprinkles.
The October 6-1/2" X 6-1/2" birthday block requested by Megan in our One Block Over group.
Inspired by Selvage Blog, my friend Michelle and I have decided to make Homeward Bound blocks into pillows. I'm not sure which Metro Living Rings print I'll put with my selvage squares, but I'm leaning toward the green.

With my newly won book Word Play Quilts, I'm making a little Christmas wall hanging. The blank space in the lower right is where I'll put a little embroidered owl like the one on the Christmas print.

It was fun having Michelle join me for some late afternoon sewing. After she left, I was back at it on my own. There's no reason these projects won't soon be finishes. Thank for the Fin-See motivation, Bobbi and Heidi! Linda


  1. I really like those word blocks! I see them almost everywhere I look so you know that means one of these days, I'm going to have to make some! That owl fabric is especially cute too.

    Very nice selvage project!

  2. Linda,

    I disagree - that's quite a bit to show! Love that slice of cake - you are making me hungry!

  3. I'm another one that flits from project to project, lol. I get a lot done, but I pick small things so I can work on something then quickly get to something else :D

    Your projects are lovely - especially the J-O-Y blocks - so fun and festive!

  4. You have lots of cute projects going. I think the JOY wall hanging is darling.

  5. Wow! I love all of your projects!

  6. Good progress anyway seeing as you worked on a couple of projects! I like doing that quite often!

  7. Ooh, I should do a Finsee! I'm almost always home Friday nights trying to sew while the boys veg out after a long week of school.

    Great projects you have going on!

    I love your selvage block. You're right, the green is good! I just watched that The Quilt Show episode with Tonya Ricucci, because I had so much fun making a word play project I was thinking about doing another. Great start on your Christmas one!

  8. Every month I want to do FNSI. I need to put it on my calendar! You have a lot of great projects going on. The birthday block is really cute!
