Friday Night Sew In.

Yep !! It was Friday Night Sew In again last night. I was organised early and sitting behind my machine by 6.30pm.


Off I go!!!


Made a cuppa and then put on the binding.

Taa Daa!!!

By 11.30pm I had completed my table runner and off to do my post. BUT for some reason the photos would not load. Tried for an hour . Then gave up and went to bed. I am pleased that it is working for me this morning as I am off to a sewing retreat for two days with my Patch friends.

Oh I guess this can also go into  my Early Bird Christmas Crafting Challenge and the OPAM challenge as well.

  4. I admire ANYONE who can sew and make things that are spectacular like that table runner!

    Furthermore, the fact that they actually LOVE doing it is totally mind boggling to a sewing-hater like myself!

    Oh, don't get me wrong - - - I know HOW to sew, but the perfectionism in my mom (as she taught me) RUINED it.

    I'll just admire all you gals work from a distance!

  10. I love this table runner! Strange too because I just found something similar in a quilt magazine yesterday afternoon that I fell in love with. We are on the same wave length huh!?

    I'm jealous of your retreat! I really need something like that very soon.. I need to get looking for one.

    Enjoy it!!
