FNSI Results - November

Third Friday of the month meant FNSI and I had definite plans for it (and for once they were actually followed!).

During the afternoon I got some work done on the secret socks...


I'm definitely a convert to Socks Yeah yarn, great colours and works up beautifully.

Then I bit the bullet and set up my new sewing machine, the Janome 1600PQC. It's mainly meant for use with my sewing frame but I can't put that up at the moment.


The machine is an absolute beast, took ages to thread up (still can't figure the auto needle threader) and even on slow it sees amazingly fast.


First up some practice and checking there was no residual oil.


If you look closely you might be able to see the stitching, I practiced some stars as I was to use them on a couple of upcoming quilts.

And then on to the main event...


Using the monster machine to free motion quilting the monster quilt. Hard to show but got a good chunk done.

If you missed this Friday's FNSI there is a bonus second FNSI next Friday.

It seems that you had a productive night Vicki! I love that colour blue you're making for the secret socks. Well done on the quilting progress - that does look like a big quilt to quilt!

It looks like you're knitting lovely thick winter socks. I love my hand knitted socks for the warmth but have only knitted 4ply.

Socks are so satisfying to knit I find - complicated enough to be a bit of a challenge but not a huge project so quick to complete. Gosh that does look like a big beast! Have fun. xx
