Fri-Day & Night With Friends...

 What superb timing this month's FNWF... five hours at home, ALONE, for the first time in about 3 weeks...  & I made the most of it!
My back is slowly recovering from its sulking, so I did some errands that were postponed from earlier in the week, got home at 10am... had a cuppa in the sunshine... & then headed for The Sewing Space...
Things went well... for the 'day' part of my FNWF, I managed to do all the quilting I wanted to do on one of the baby quilts... I am no expert, but the result is good enough for me...



After dinner came the 'night' part of my FNWF...this professionally arranged group of strips will become the binding.











The Site Manager clocked off early... to his CAT cubby... all that lying around in warm spots on cold days, it really is exhausting.



Friday Night With Friends has been a real tonic for me this month... thanks Cheryll for fitting us all in at your place... HERE is the linky where you will find all the other wonderful crafty ladies who joined in...

~♥~Wishing You A Wonderful Weekend~♥~

sounds like a perfect day crafting.
you can't expect the site manager to work all day, that's why he is the manager.

The quilt is looking gorgeous. Love the way your site manager went to sleep on the job. lol. Good to hear your back is recovering.

Your Site Manager is like mine, checking out all the warm spots. He looks very cute in his cat cubby! Great idea making both the baby quilts. I'm doing a unisex one but am not happy with it if it turns out being a little girl, not girly enough for my liking. Love your header mosiac too. Have a happy Sunday Anthea! xx

Noela said...

Lovely baby quilt. Glad your back is better. Hugs......

Deb R said...

Wendy B said...

Oh Anthea....pure heaven....except for the 'back ' part.... I can relate to that pain!!!! YUK! But so pleased it settled so you could get some stitching done without interruptions!!! I got some new hibiscus plants last week and one flowered yesterday....made me think of you!
xox sugary sweet hugs
Wendy :O)

Love the quilt and glad you are on the mend. My site managers (lol) spent the whole day asleep following the sun from window to window.

Farm Gate Creations said...

Sounds like the perfect night, and soooo typical for the site manager to knock off so early. Mine do the same.

Maria said...

Look forward to seeing the wee quilt finished..
Hmm the site manger does look comfy.

Narelle said...

Sounds perfect to me :)

Charlie and Wendy said...

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend your 5 hours! Lovely progress, hugs Wendy
