FNWF - February 2017

I love Friday nights when I can join cyber friends and sew...
well even without cyber friends I love to sew after work.๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

A bit of a mixed bag this month.

I cut some applique houses.  This is for a pattern I bought at a retreat ...maybe February 2016...not too bad really.
I had planned to trace the of the shapes for when I find the right fabric (ran out of time) - it is not in my stash ๐Ÿ‘Ž- that is what happens when you decide to do something that is not your normal style...just as well I have friends from whom I can beg or borrow (never steal!!!) or maybe I will need to do some bartering.

I've also been making some of the blocks from Tula Pink's book - 100 Modern Quilt Blocks.  I find them so quick - I can cut and make 4 or 5 a night after dinner...if I don't sit & watch TV!

These are the ones I sewed tonight.

And I had to have a little treat...There are new Tim Tams, so I HAD to try the Salted Caramel ones.  I bought them at lunch time and shared a few with one of my work colleagues - she will give them to her husband.

Thanks to our lovely hostess, Cheryll - and a happy weekend to everyone.

Pop over here to find all the other FNWFers.
