Tonight was our first Friday Night Sew-In and boy did we have a good time. Three friends came round and we started off having Fish & Chips for tea and just catching up, sorry about the spilled coca cola, almost a disaster!!!!
Then Sue, yes the clever Sue started the sewing ball rolling thank goodness because i think the rest of us would have just sat and talked :0 Sue used the scraps from my birthday sewing BOM hold-all (we are trying to talk Sue into writing a pattern for it) to make a mini quilt for the local hospital for stillborn babies. Yes she is not only clever but incredibly kind. Kristen, still eating at this point soon got started on her “Girls Day Out” quilt that she has been working on for 100yrs, well maybe not that long but close.
Helen didn’t bring anything as she had come straight from work and she said she was quite happy to just sit and look at patterns etc but we couldn’t have that, so i set her to work on “Josephine the Jellyfish” She did a great job and I am now closer to having her finished, I have great friends.
We are all looking very serious in these photo’s and our mouths seem quite still but believe me they were anything but.
I worked on my hand quilting, I’m still having trouble BUT i think I’m starting to get a bit of a quilting action going. One can only hope and practice!
This was such a fun night and we are all keen to do it again next month, Hope you can join in too, where-ever you are.
Have a great weekend Annie
