My Friday Night Sew-In Results!

I got a bit of an early start for the FNSI and got started late afternoon before heading off to athletics. I cut out all the squares and triangles for the border of my chicken quilt. I even managed to sew one block together!
At athletics I worked on some secret sewing and did a bit more when we got home while watching the tennis. Of course, this is all you can see at the moment!

Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends!
