Friday Night With Friends for April

Oh my, that was amazing, typing the word A-P-R-I-L...
I have been pottering all day with some sewing, so this has been  more like an All-Day-Stitch-In...
just the way I like it!

 


I am very pleased that today I have finished sewing for the "Colour Swap of 4 Items"... no sneak peek this time...
 all that remains is to wrap & post, yay!






This little pincushion was  finished late this afternoon... it was one of the many stitcheries I traced up the other week... it's another Willow Valley Store design, called Mini Pincushions.
♥I. Love. This.♥

(Can't decide whether to put it in the Birthday-Love Stash, or keep it!)




And finally for the evening, I decided to work on something that would not require me to think too much... Maid In Manhattan was on telly, so I watched it for what must be the 25th time.
My Christmas Angel cross stitch... I did the top right part of the star, & also the black & the pinks to the above right of the star.
I hope you enjoyed your Friday Night With Friends... thanks again to Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' for hosting... the link to see what others have been up to is HERE

~♥~Have a lovely weekend~♥~

THAT pin cushion is gorgeous. LoVe the soft pink check fabric. I would be very tempted to make it a "keeper" and not give it away...lol :)

Love your pin cushion. Big decision as to whether to keep it or.... I think I would be swayed to keep it as it is pink. Love pink things!!! I also stitched along to Maid in Manhattan and also watched it for the umpteenth time. Have a great weekend. xx
