Friday Night With Friends

So good to be back. It's been a while since I posted but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy with all things patchwork!

I traced the Anni Downs designs for her gorgeous project roll (see previous post) and am loving the simple stitching at night. I really should spend a couple of hours tracing so I've always got something to pick up. There's been many a night when I've had itchy fingers and just don't have anything prepared and it's so frustrating!!!!

Well there's really not much to show for a Friday night but you all know how slow stitching is...


While I'm here I have to show you my quilt...I worked on it for seven years!!!! I learnt a lot of embroidery stitches along the way and spent AGES cutting and piecing it all together. Last month my patchwork teacher and friend Debbie Donegan held a quilt show to celebrate ten years of her patchwork classes and my quilt was up there for all to see...so proud!


Here are some of the embroidery panels...






Thanks for visiting, I'm off to take a look at what you've been playing with lately.
