FNWF February 2014

I had forgotten that I needed space in my schedule for linkies I joined in with last year. I have to keep joining in with FNWF. I can't believe how big it is now.

With the excuse of company Friday night I decided to make a cake. Turns out is was just me and hubby here to eat it and I nearly forgot to get a picture of the finished cake. I salvaged a couple of neat slices for a picture this morning.

Marbled Chocolate and Orange Loaf

I have posted the recipe and some making photos on my Books I am Reading blog since the recipe comes from one of my favourite recipe books.

I decided I would work on my next scrappy star for FNWF. It was dark by the time I got into the sewing room yesterday and it was a bit hard choosing colours. I hoped they would still look all right in the morning.
I had to delve into my smalls box since it called for 3" squares and my scraps are too scrappy to make into neat squares. It also needed quite a lot of the one fabric for the background. I only managed to cut all the pieces last night and had to get up this morning to at least have something respectable for a FNWF post.

I have started the In the Garden BOM and had a pile of scraps that needed a bit of sorting so I can work on that some more today. This is my rental house sewing room.

Much more organised now.

I sewed all the HST for the scrappy star.

This is what it will be like. Seems to be a couple of holes to fill there.

I have mentioned on a few posts that I have moved house. We sold up our acreage in Brisbane and have moved to the beach further north. The beach is a couple of minutes walk away. This was yesterday morning. I don't mean to rub it in but it has been such a long time coming and we are thrilled to be here.

Today I am linking up with FNWF (Friday Night with Friends)
I am cooking breakfast as I write this - pancakes to have with yoghurt and blueberries. I will make myself a coffee after breakfast and post the cake recipe before posting this. Then I will spend some time checking out what the rest of you have been up to.
