Fnsi results, winner and some news.

As I said in my previous post I was lucky enough to have my sister here with me for fnsi. We changed things up a bit tho. We crocheted!!!  We are even still doing it days later. Our dad has always crocheted and since he has been a bit under the weather he hadn't done much. But we did get to spend a fabulous day with him trying to learn some techniques. (see pic below of them hard at work on the couch)  It was heavenly.  We both finished a scarf by Sunday. YAY and even started on some granny squares too.

The winner for this months fnsi is:

#12----Kathy at http://kindredquilts.blogspot.com/

congrats!!!  your gift will be:  (see the first picture below).
its a 5 FQ pack of fall fabrics and this cute tape measure.  isnt it fun?!!!  please send me an email with your mailing info. 

Don't forget to check Heidi's blog at www.handmadebyheidi.com for her winner.

Lastly the news------ Heidi and I have been co-hosting FNSI for 3 years.  We have made the tough decision to stop doing a monthly giveaway. (boo, hiss, sigh)  BUT We are still going do fnsi each month because we LOVE this event.  it gives us the push to sew.  Once in awhile we will do a surprise giveaway for special occasions.   cuz we love all of you loyal followers!!!

so here are a few pics from my night and weekend. 
see you all next month!!!

Congrats to Kathy and I fully understand about the monthly prizes no longer happening. Doing that sort of thing takes time and money. So glad that FNSI is still happening, though.

I'm glad to hear FNSI will continue. You and Heidi have been very enerous with the giveaways, but we don't need them to keep on stitching.

Whoa, you scared me for a minute, I thought you were going to cancel FNSI! Canceling the giveaway is no big deal--it was super generous of you to have them for so long! I'm sure we will all be back. :o) I know I will!

No worries...we love FNSI and will continue to enjoy your motivation and encouragement.

FNSI is a great thing to do each month- it is cool to know that a bunch of other women are busy with the needle at the same time. Thanks for continuing to host this!

Hi Bobbi... firstly, thank you for the generous give-a-way. I opened your blog and started reading the post and said, "oh my, that's me! I won!" I'm thrilled! BUT, more importantly, I was so happy to read that you and Heidi would still be hosting the FNSI! That was truly the best news of your post! Thank you to both of you for deciding to keep it going!

I am loving being a partnof FNSI. I wasn't even aware there was a monthly prize until I got visits congratulating me last month.
I live the thought of like minded people gathering one night a month to share what they love doing.
Thanks for such generous hosts.

Whilst I've never won one of the FNSI giveaways, that's not my incentive for participating...I just love having another reason (not an excuse as I never justify why I sew so much to anyone, nor should I have to lol). Glad you're not stopping them altogether.

Am looking forward to this months, which I'm hoping is still on the 3rd Friday (?) as I've already changed the date on my blog button lol

Hugs
