Chooky's Chookshed Party

It's Party Time !!!!

Chooky hosts a virtual party every year to celebrate the birthday of her ChookShed. We all link up and try to commit the weekend to sewing...
Of course there is a real party happening too, but we can't all arrive in the middle of *^#!^(^#%&   wherever it is - and sew - but a virtual party is almost as good.

Friday Night
Never very productive as its the end of a week of work, but I did get some very fiddly cutting done.

The bits are all for my "Welcome to the North Pole" quilt ...maybe finished for this Christmas?  

In between some "domestics" I added some snow and selected some roofing material for some blocks.  Here are a couple...though I did quite a few more....

(no idea why this won't go the right way..)

I'll be sewing the roofs on while watching TV on Sunday night.

During the day I was showing DD2 the blocks - most of the buildings have fabric that matches what the building is for - when I showed her the Coffee Shop,,,she said it was a shame it wasn't in the shape of a coffee cup/mug...
This is/was  the Coffee Shop:

so I put my architect's hat on...and built a new Coffee Shop...just needs a decoration for the lid...and snow...maybe some decorations on the handle.

Sunday was a Sunday Stitchers Day - so I worked on this:
A few of us in the room working on this one.

Thanks to Chookyblue for hosting a fun cyber Sewing Party - Happy Birthday to her shed...I think a real visit is on my bucket list.  You can pop over there and go exploring what all the party goers got up to via the links.
