Friday Night Sew-In

These were the projects I took with me to stitch on 
our cruise. I did manage to get some stitching in 
while we were just relaxing by the pool.
 Finished my little bird by Gail Pan.
Also finished up my Splendid Sampler block "Blossoming" by Jenny Reynolds. This is the first Splendid Sampler 
block I have stitched. Bit behind aren't I! I'm going to look 
for a sweet little button for the heart.
Oh, I've just noticed a stray thread there.
 I started my second Splendid Sampler block. This one 
is "Stitch In The Garden" by Gail Pan.
I got a late start to Friday Night Sew-In and just stitched the little blue bird and started on the left flower.
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us. 
It was a lovely night of stitching along with friends. 
You can see what everyone got up to here.

Those blocks are so pretty. I am planning to do both of them and put them together as a wall hanging or a mini.

The 'little bit' of stitching you managed to get done is lovely.

What beautiful stitching. I haven't started my splendid sampler blocks yet so you are ahead of me! I love Gail Pan and Jennifer Reynolds stitcheries.

Oh a cruise sounds so relaxing Christine... what could be better than stitching by the pool?!
Very pretty designs there, I'm sure you'll do a wonderful job of the blocks.
