Friday Night With Friends!

I didn't get as much stitching done as I had hoped.
Block 2 of Jenny's Vintage Kitchen is now done.
I basted a couple more hexagons and 
then joined three together.
What took my time? 
I came across this little project in the drawer. 
These blocks were made many years ago. 
They are part of a mini Vintage Sampler quilt. 
I have decided I am never going to make the other five blocks so I'm going to make a mini with these four. 

So where were the fabrics I knew I had kept away from my stash so they wouldn't be used? I spent ages searching the sewing room, the four boxes of fabrics under our bed
and everywhere else I could think of.
I woke up this morning and remembered they were in this tin. So I searched a bit more and found the tin.
Yay! Here they are! Now to work out what I'm going to do.

Thanks to Cheryll for hosting us last night. 
Here is the link to see what others stitched last night

It's so frustrating when you can't find that elusive piece of fabric. Glad it turned up so you can finish your sweet little mini.

Hello Christine,

How many other things did you find while looking for that tin? So glad you found it, it will make a lovely small quilt. Lots of lovely stitching being done at your home.

Happy days.

Grin, you were busy crafting even if you didn't get so much done! Funny how our brain works overnight, isn't it?! Jenny's blocks are gorgeous! And your vintage mini blocks also very sweet... they will make a lovely little quilt.

Kim said...

What a good idea. It is always in the last place you look.

The mini will be pretty when completed I had the same problem when I was searching for some fabric the other day took awhile for me to figure out where I had put it when I cleaned up my stash regards Ofaigh

Anthea said...

Good old tin, Christine! Gotta love one that carries something so pretty... seems lots of us are pulling out or coming across old projects lately!

Katherine said...

Lovely little stitcheries and I love the idea of turning your little blocks into a mini. Good thing you remembered about the lovely tin with all the fabrics tucked away safely inside.

Ondrea said...

Glad you found where they were. They are so sweet. Love your purple hexies too.

Jayne Marti said...

Lovely work. I have just found the Vintage Kitchen stitchery too, and can't wait to start. I do that all the time - put something away somewhere 'safe'! It is pretty frustrating.
