First Friday Night Sew-In For 2021

I got an early start to FNSI and got back to my trimming my 
Tilda fabric scraps that I had started the day before.
I used a die cutter to cut the hexagons for my quilt and was 
left with this shape fabrics. So I trimmed the fabrics to usable pieces.
My work station.
One pile of pretty little scraps!
And now I have a box of usable pieces.
Once I finished doing that, I laid out the 1 1/2 inch squares 
I had been cutting for a project as I went along.
I also hemmed my nephew's cricket whites for him 
but apparently mending doesn't count for FNSI! LOL!
Then I sat down with my feet up to work on my hexagon quilt. 
I decided the scraps were too pretty to throw away 
so now they are in this jar on my shelf!
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us.
You can see what the others got up to here.

First Finishes For 2021!

I've actually made the first two weekly challenges 
with the Tilda Lovers Club.
Week one's heart using scrappy bits of Tilda fabric 
and is filled with lavender.
Week two are were these gorgeous flowers. I decided to make two. 
Not sure what I'll do with them yet.
Who doesn't love pretty wool felt? 
I managed to find the piece of cream felt in my stash
that was just big enough to make my heart. 
I obviously need more felt so off to the quilt shop I went! 

Three little finishes in the first two weeks of 2021.
Last year I didn't have my first finish until June!
