Results from FNSI

It doesnt seem much by looking at the pic but I managed to get this woven and about three quarters of it stitched down before the bobbin thread  in my machine decided not to play the game. That was even after I rewound and then sewed a whole row without remember to put the bobbin in!   In the end I just ended up unthreading everything and I will deal with it tomorrow.

Not just for dishes.........

My online group had a swap where we had to make a bag from a tea towel......we could add other fabric if we chose.

Here is what I made for Jo

I loved the spotty tea towel when I found it and then I added some gorgeous trim and a doiley.

This is my gift received from Bec

including some extras.............

The bag from Bec must have been made with the largest of large tea towels and Bec also must of know that I just needed towels for dishes as she sent extras (if only we could get away with making bags or other things without doing dishes!).  The Stitch It For Christmas book has loads of wonderful projects so I should have my Christmas craft sorted.
