Friday Sewing...

Actually, that's the Friday Night With Friends variety of sewing... or stitching in my case.
Once again, Cheryll has hosted another gathering of lovely ladies, all of us being very clever with our needles & threads - thank you so much Cheryll♥
Now that I have finished all the stitcheries for one project (Tis The Season) I thought it was high time to put in a much more earnest effort with the stitcheries of another... my Polka Dot Girls.
Seriously, if this project was a spouse, it would have divorced me ages ago on the grounds of neglect!

Thursday evening I got out my fantastic LED light pad, & traced up a few more designs. Yesterday I took one of them to Patch group & got started, then finished it while watching 'The First Wives Club'.
(Does Diane Keaton ever get a role in which she doesn't wear high-waist trousers & those terrible glasses??!) This one of the small designs; but still, getting it finished is one more to tick off!
 
I'm looking forward to a bit of blog hopping later on, to see what everyone else worked on!

This weekend I'm going to be continuing work on sewing together the quilt top of my Tis The Season... & if there's time, I might make a start on the first block of the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM.
There's a triathlon event here tomorrow, lots of roads blocked/closed in my area, we're kind of locked in, so what better way to spend my time than sewing!

Hi Anthea. I have come via Cheryll's blog as I have joined the FnwF sewing group.
The butterfly embroidery is very pretty. The BOM looks lovely--but I am not starting another quilt until I finish some of my UFOs-- don't we all say the same thing though.

Look forward to seeing that quilt top put together in no time at all.

Sue G Johnson said...
