FNSI and Rainbow for Dainere

FNSI almost slipped by without notice - but thanks to reading some blogs last night I realised in time - even if a bit later in the evening than I would have liked. Thank you to Heidi for organising us to stitch together once again.

 My sewing consisted of


 a cushion for Harry - he likes trucks, tractors etc, like most young boys do.
 Also the cushion on the left.  This was made from leftover fabrics from the cushions I made for Kerryn for Christmas.  That meant some more bits have gone from my stash.  I enjoy making cushions so it was a good evening of stitching.
I also finished my Rainbow of Hope to send to Dainere.  If you havent heard about the Rainbow of Hope project organised by Helen of Hugs and Kisses to help the fundraising efforts of Dainere for funding research into brain tumours, go here and read it, and also check out Dainere's blog.  What  inspiring people.  The link to the pattern for the rainbow is on Helen's blog, and is very quick to make.  I did mine on quilting fabric, but it can also be stitched on felt.

Tonight I am going with my 2 daughters and some of their friends to see

 at the Lyric Theatre, Brisbane.  Should be a great night.

Great FNSI sewing Marilyn - the trucks fabric is perfect for a boy!
I have seen the Rainbow of Hope post on Helen's blog, so I'll be diving into my scrap box to make a rainbow. It all reminds me how random life & can be & how blessed we are to enjoy good health x

I completely missed FSNI, I'm just reading about it now! You got a lot done, love your two cushions, the truck one is perfect for a boy and the birds on the wire is just beautiful. I love your rainbow too, so kind to do something for a good cause.
