It's great to see so many names on the list for Friday Night With Friends... Cheryll our lovely hostess does a wonderful job co-ordinating this each month for us... Thanks Cheryll!
If you'd like to go check out the list of last nights ladies, just go here.
So what did I do?
Well, on Thursday evening I had time, so I started cutting the strip sets into 2½inch units... lots of cutting... laying them in pretty little stacks. Then I got distracted with watching 'Ink Master', so the cutting stopped. (I do find that show strangely fascinating!)
Friday I took all the strips sets to Patchwork group & finished the cutting of the sets... ended up with enough sets for 25 blocks!... & I even got time to sew a few into finished blocks.
Darn it, that jewel-y green often looks blue in pics... The pic below shows it better...
Now I'm looking forward to a bit of blog-hopping this evening & seeing what everyone else got up to!
Last night was the end-of-season Carnival for mr14s soccer... His team ended the season at the bottom of the ladder (no finals in this comp), but last night pulled off some great wins - even against the top team - & got themselves into the final for the Carnival. Sadly they did get beaten, but still, ending as Runners Up in the carnival after getting beaten every week during the season, had all the boys so happy for themselves!
I love to see mr14 out there doing his thing & I am always so pleased to see that our boys showed so much genuine sportsmanship throughout the season despite so many losses. A disparate & mismatched group of boys at the beginning of the season, they improved a little each week & seem keen to stay together next year.
Plus of course, there is the factor of the enjoyable conversations & silliness of the team parents as we watch them play!!
Happy Stitching & Have A Great Weekend x
