Cheryll at Stitchingcubbyhole hosts Friday Night with Friends (FNwF) on the first Friday of the month, and although I've been meaning to join in for ages, this is the first time I've managed it.
Here's what Cheryll has to say about FNwF...
"We "meet" on the first Friday night of each month to enjoy a night of crafting.
You can spend YOUR time doing whatever you want to do...sewing, stitching, card making, knitting or crocheting. It's just a fun night in our own homes to sit and enjoy ourselves crafting with FRieNDs...some of which we have never even met. These "friends" could be in our neighbourhood, country or on the other side of the globe! We are NOT alone...lol.
SO... get the hubby and kids organised... order the pizza... chill the wine...then EnJoY some
"ME TiMe".Simply sign up before the date each month & then EnJoY your Friday night... then over the weekend, post a pic on your blog of what you got up to & we'll all come by for a visit.
We love to encourage, praise and admire ALL forms of craft so please join in when you are able. And if you join in... you have a chance of WiNNinG a small gift each month as well.
SO put the kettle on... I'll be over to your house one Friday night each month."
It's rather nice to be working on a chosen project knowing others around the world are doing the same. It's also a good way for me to blog regularly, as I will (hopefuly!) post what I've worked on.
It was late when I headed to sewing room....these summer evenings with daylight savings mean I'm often still out walking with Mirrhi or doing a bit in the garden until around 8pm, and while I wait for the chooks to decide to go to bed. Then I just had to watch Banks, a detective show I like, so it was after 9 when I got to work. I finished off a block for the F2F block swap for Emmely, who's the recipient for January, and has chosen green for her blocks.. Just a little peek, so the surprise isn't spoiled.
I then dug through my blue scraps and stitched up 3 and a half churn dashes for RSC16. Now I look at the photos, I see I placed the spotty bits around the wrong way, never mind, it's staying, I guess that's what happens when you're still up sewing close to midnight. These are 6.5 inch.
I started some scrappy blocks as leaders and enders as well, I'll add to them as I make more churns.
Thanks to Cheryll for hosting FNwF , you can visit other FNwFers by using the links at stitchingcubbyhole and see what they've been doing.
And just an update on the kitty situation.....Neesa has taken happily to her new 'sky bed'. She sleeps up on it all the time now and this photo shows how relaxed and content she is. I'm enjoying having her there too, I talk to her all the time, and toss colour and designs decisons around with her ....don't always get an answer, but I'm sure she's listening.
Molly has also decided that my sewing room's the place to be, sleeping right near my chair.... a bit dangerous, as I forget she's there and have stepped on her a couple of times. She just grunts a bit and sleeps on.
