Frinday Night Sew-In

I had a productive night stitching along with everyone. Two projects were finished! These two stitcheries have been sitting in a box waiting for something to be done with them. 
This is Jenny's "Blossoming" block from the Splendid Sampler. It fitted perfectly into this hoop. 
Next is "My Home - The Kitchen" by Lisa Cantlay of  
Fig 'n' Berry Creations. I decided to frame this one 
instead of making it into a wall quilt. 

So two finishes in one day. Must be a record for me!

Thanks to Wendy for being a lovely hostess. 
You can see what everyone else got up to here.

Sewing Bird

I had a little play with my sewing machine the other day 
and put together this pin cushion. It was a kit that 
I picked up at AQC called the "Sewing Bird".

It didn't take very long to make and I'm sure I'll be making more of these. Will have to keep an eye out for the wooden reels and little crocheted flowers.

Friday Night With Friends

 I had a lovely night stitching along with everyone. Worked some more on my Gail Pan Christmas Collage stitchery. Didn't quite get it finished as I was also watching a couple more episodes of The Crown.
Thank you to Chez for being such a lovely hostess.

Well, my stitching continues today. 
I'm off to Gail Pan's Winter Gathering!
