Friday Night Sew-In for January

It seems quite a few bloggers were eager for the return of FNSI, me included!
And to really make a good go of it, I did some stitching here & there throughout the day, then continued whilst watching the Australian Open, Murray vs Federer, wow what a match.

It feels great to have finally made some meaningful  progress on a project... during this month I have jumped from one project to another, but still feel like I haven't done much.

So here's where I'm at with my Happy Christmas Cushion from The Birdhouse... Today I have completed sewing the stitcheries to the centre panel, & stitched together the rows of hexagons.
 I love the Angel, she's my favourite of the stitcheries
 The rows still need to be stitched together to form panels, so that will be the job for Saturday night
The link is HERE for the list of other participants, so why not do a little blog-hopping & see what other creative people have been doing?!

I just today noticed that my blog has now had over 10,000 views... I've 70 Followers... & received over 1500 comments... well thanks so much for that, I hope you keep popping by.
♥MUCH APPRECIATED♥

Happy Australia Day everyone...
