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.

  5. All of the projects are quite lovely. As for not "needing" anything, unfortunately, that doesn't always stop me from buying something I fall in love with...especially if it's on sale.

  7. Lovely projects. How nice that you stitch with your friend every week. I was doing that for awhile, but it seems to have fallen apart. Don't spend toooo much noney at the show!
