Friday Night Sew In for August

Last night was perfect for the Friday Night Sew In... ghastly weather outside, nothing good on telly...
BUT... I got out the next of my Polka Dot Girls stitcheries & put on my beloved Lark Rise to Candleford DVDs... gotta love Minnie eating all those hard-boiled eggs when she thinks she's pregnant!
Earlier in the day I did a bit more of Redwork Noel... golly this one is hard to put down!
Thank You Wendy for being our Hostess for FNSI... it's great to see so many people joining in...

The re-organisation of the Sewing Space is taking shape nicely... bought the shelving this morning, so that's something that the MOTHs can build together (Men Of The House ie mrHS & mr13). I have got some great storage boxes from Officeworks, & am organising my magazines & patterns into them. Next week will be fun, moving my stuff onto the shelves, can't wait.

~♥~Happy Weekend Everyone & Thanks For Visiting My Blog~♥~

Lovely work Anthea, foul weather here as well Friday night at one stage I thought the house might get up and fly away the wind was so strong lol. Nothing beats a bit of stitching while watching a favourite DVD or two :) Barb.

Leanne said...

Beautiful projects Anthea, your cross stitch is coming along nicely. Its a horrible day here, blowing a gale and so much rain. We have way too much already. It will be flood warning soon.
A good day so stay in my sewing room and play.

Great stitching, and congrats on the continued organization...did a little of the same this weekend as well. It sure is a slow process though to do the initial setup. Oh and thanks for donating the squares as prize for this month`s FNSI
