Well FNSI saw me take some time, for myself, to do some more secret sewing  so I can't show too much but....I may or may not have been using some fabrics from this selection...
It was a change to have a break from this 2.5 inch high stack of papers.. 
yes, it's been end of year report writing time and in this stack are the subject reports for my class..all printed ..1 page per subject and there are 9 pages per student at the moment..I have been proofreading all the pages-some I have written and some have been done by other subject teachers ... then  writing a final comment  for each front page..and now they will be off to our Year 7 dean tomorrow for her to sign.. then on to the I going to be glad to pass them on.. I can get back to sewing at night...just for a change..

It's out with the old...

My poor old lamp has finally had fell apart the other night as I was sewing at night.  The lights on my sewing machine just don't do it at night so an extra light is a must..

I already knew that  'white' light suited me better than the yellowish glow of this old halogen lamp when it fell apart it was the perfect time to say goodbye to it and go shopping for a new one...there was not a lot of choice in town but this is the one I came home will get a good trial this week as I work on finishing a few things...well that is the plan after I finish writing some school reports ..

Im back.... with FNWF

After a few weeks of blogging silence, I'm back to share what I worked on Friday night.  I had the writing stitched before Friday and did all of the rest on Friday night and did my fingers notice all that stitching!!  I had a bit of trouble focusing at one stage so a little closing of the eyes and I was back into it.  Saturday saw me putting on the borders and then starting to do a little quilting.....this one is for me...unlike the other secret sewing that I have been doing....
                         pear tree in the garden so I looked for something else and chose this one..
