Friday Night Sew In 3 in 1






As it was "Friday Night Sew In " I cleaned my machine, put in a new needle, had all my blocks ready and my fabric cut. So after tea with a coffee in hand I settled into my sewing room to join other ladies to just sit and sew.

                                                             After five hours of sewing and 24 blocks later the pile of strips is ALMOST gone.                                                               
                                                                                                     



 When I got up this morning I went straight into the sewing room and decided to have a PJ day. My DH even got me breakfast. Boiled eggs,toast and a cup of tea. Spent most of the day sewing the blocks together and then after tea finished the quilt.

So  1= I participated in the Friday Night Sew In,  2 = Another finish for the OPAM challenge,  3=  Another QAYG Quilt for the Strippy Challenge as well.

  6. Wow Mum, great job. Sharon, Ronie and I had a sew-in Friday that went into the night. We manly worked on Sharon's dress. I cut out a new corset and started Zoe's Lady Elizabeth under garments. Once I work things out in my head it is much easier to cut the material. What does DH say 90% thinking 10% doing. I hate it when he is right. Love Sandra
