FNSI catch-up

Friday night saw my friend come over to continue working on the lovely project roll. I managed to get all of my squares together, and then over the weekend I also cut and pieced together the front section. This will feature appliques and stitcheries before being joined to the squares.

I'm very happy with it so far.

Here a few finishes too.

And my friend's...

I love them all. We've both enjoyed working on projects together on Friday evenings while the boys watch the footy. It's lovely to stitch with a friend and so much more motivating.

Heading to the show in Sydney this weekend. I keep telling myself I don't "need' anything...lets see what I come home with!

Thanks Wendy, for coordinating our Friday night get together. I hope you had fun too. Now I'm off to have a look at what everyone else got up to.

FNwF and Chooky's party

Have been unwell all weekend but that didn't stop me joining FNwF or the party in the Chookshed. A day off work on Friday saw me start a little early. I've been playing with some crochet, making medallions which will eventually find their way into a granny square blanket.

I spent Friday night with a friend. We've decided to start on Annie Down's project roll...

We are big fans of all of Annie's you may have noticed! I raided my favourite scap bag and leftover strips and came up with a nice variety. I've decided to use some good old calico for the contrasting squares. After a weekend in, I've ended up with everything cut and ready to go.

It's been lovely spending time on my projects, knowing I have friends all around doing the same. Thanks Cheryll for Friday night, and you Chooky for the weekend of fun...I hope you both had a good time too!
