Friday Night Sew-In

 I joined Wendy and the girls for last night's 
I worked on my project for our FHFS wool swap. 
Yes, I'm a week late but it is now nearly finished. Silly me thought it was due at the end of October. I thought I'd get our Quilt Show over with and then really get stuck into my project. When posts started popping up about parcels in the mail and being received, I went and checked the date. 
It was due on the 10th October!
These just may be some scraps from my project!
At the quilt show, Mel and I were walking around the Trader's Hall and she said to me "I have a confession to make. I'm making for you and I won't be finished in time!". I said "I have a confession too. I'm making for you" and we both burst out laughing! Little did we know we were making for each other. At one point, we had both said to each other that we didn't think our partners would be too upset if we were late. We decided we'd have extra time and when we were both finished, we'd get together to exchange our gifts. 
So the pressure was off!

Thanks to Wendy for hosting us all last night.

Sending get well wishes to my lovely friend Mel 
who isn't feeling too well at the moment. 
I hope you're feeling better soon. xxx
