Friday Night With Friends - The Lucky Dip Edition!

This evening for Friday Night With Friends, I couldn't really decide what to do, so I thought a Lucky Dip could be interesting... just go push my hand into my box of kits & unfinished projects, & bring out whatever touched my fingers... what fun!
I  kept a piece of fabric left over from a project last year, to make a table runner/centre from it... just something simple & pretty. Unfortunately, I had to change my idea on the shape of it after an incorrect cut with the rotary blade...
You can see I am no expert in the way I have it layered, pinned, taped and ready to quilt...
Shocking pic, sorry!




It will probably measure about 25 inches by 21 inches when it's finished.
 
I'm also doing some sewing with this cute little fellow... oh, are they chocolate-flavoured carrots?!
I look forward to spending time over the weekend, visiting others who took part in this evening.
Thanks Cheryll for hosting this great monthly event of Friday Night With Friends

I'm glad someone else does that Anthea, cuts wrong & so has to change the pattern. I seem to be a habitual offender. That bunny is so cute & choc carrots do sounds appetising! Tracee xx

Hi Anthea,
What a great idea to pluck something out of the UFO bag and go for it. I need to do that too, thanks for the tip!! Love the bunny and his basket of egg carrots.
Cheers, Anita.
