Friday Night Sew-In

 
 I was multi-tasking at FNSI last night.
 
 Sliced up the loaves of almond bread and 
began the second baking.
While the first lot were in the oven, I pulled out 
some fabrics for a new project.
 By the end of the night I had re-baked 4 loaves.
 Two batches of almond and two batches of 
almond and orange infused cranberries!
Finished the prep work ready to start stitching. This is going to be for Austin's girlfriend's birthday which was last week. I couldn't find anything that appealed to me to get for her so I decided to make something. She knows I am going to make something special for her and is very happy to wait.

Well, I'm off to NOTYQ's Christmas Party. I'll miss my lovely friend Mel as it is far too hot for her to come outside.
