Here we again - our 13th year up at My Alford. We haven't had a cold windy time here for quite a while - but this year is making up for it...very gusty and quite cool at night time. I forgot to take a picture of the "To Do" board at the start...but I do have one at the close of business at the end of Day 2. Here are some projects that have been finished off: A dress for a future granddaughter from Louise:
and another one....
Two microwave cozy bowls from Erica
a baby quilt from Inca
a lovely pink quilt from Sue
Bev's baby quilt
A tinkerbell outfit from Erica
Two dresses for grand daughters from Erica
Louise's cushion for her window seat
Inca's Funky Flowers top
Alison's not so easy quilt.....great pattern but very bad instructions
Maureen's Reindeer runner
Another dress for a grand daughter from Erica
Bev's table runner
and the Tally Board
I have made progress...but photos will have to wait...
I was off to a late start - I stayed in the city to get my nails & pedicure done . . .but I did crochet a bit whilst my feet were being "tidied up"
As I am off to retreat next Friday (yikes - how can it be so soon???) I have plenty to do: I cut a pile of rectangles...but decided some of the fabrics I had put aside were not right -may need a quick shopping trip to correct that
And I got out the threads I need to finish off some applique - hopefully before Thursday night ....I can see a few late nights coming up.
Thanks for your company everyone - I hope you were all busy little bees!
It was time - once again to join Wendy and cyber friends for a night (or more??) of sewing, crafting ...or whatever took your fancy.. I was determined to not waste a night, so after a quick dinner - watching BH&G, I crocheted for a bit....
Then off into SSS (Susan's Sewing Space) to whip up a few blocks for Kinship 100 Block Fusion Sampler (2019). I've been posting a block a day since 1st July - it's supposed to be easy - one block a day!. Does that really work for anyone?? - it doesn't for me - especially as I'm off to work most days...so I am getting ahead when I can. These are blocks 22-25. Some of them are quite quick...some not as quick...
I haven't really thought about how these will go together...
we still have a loooong way to go -
although a lot of the blocks have a lot of white -
there are a lot that don't like these -
so maybe I will end up sashing them with a very dark navy or charcoal....
Yesterday was a sewing day for me, One of my friends needed to raid my green stash for some trees, so she brought her blues over and I was able to cut these blocks during the day....the longest part is deciding which fabric goes with what. I haven't run out off my blues yet - but her collection has been a great help. Thanks Inca.
Pop over here and see what everyone else got up to. Thanks Wendy for giving us the opportunity to hide in our sewing rooms and sew!
I posted this one early (or late Friday night) as I hope to get the the Redlands Quilt Show tomorrow and grocery shop (exciting...NOT) and I am out Sunday - sewing all day and a Birthday dinner at night....then I will have to go back to work for a rest!!! Happy Weekend!!!!
As usual on the first Friday of the month - I have great plans - but as is often the case - those plans do not always eventuate...the comfy-ness of the recliner seems to play havoc with my eyes and . .z.zz.zzz...zzz off I go! However, it's a sewing day tomorrow and I had to organised something...so in addition to some crocheting - which took a while to get the size right as it is different to usual yarn . . .I traced two blocks - one of my postcards and anther for a gift for my grandson who will be baptised Sunday week . . so off to Townsville I go!!
Thanks Cheryll for hosting - sorry for my sleepiness...my heart was in it!...I'm sure the others were higher achievers . . .go here to check them out.
FNSI turned into FNEOwDD2 (Friday Night Eating Out with DD2) when your youngest says she'd like to visit because its been a while since we all caught up, DH is going to offer dinner out at his expense...so not a lot of sewing happened. I did do some crocheting on the trip home from work and a it after dinner . . .but really not a lot.
Oh well - I have a day out sewing on Sunday so I will make up for it!! Hope everyone else enjoyed themselves, got something done...and had a fun night!
