FMWFFriday Night was FNWF.
You know the drill - a quick & easy dinner (fish & chips this time) - easy stuff whilst watching BH&G . . . crochet this time
Then into SSS and I put these pieces together for the start of a baby quilt.
Every year Chooky has a Chookshed party. Originally to celebrate the first year of having her own "sewing space" - she invites girls to come for a sleepover and a big sewing gig.
Sadly this year there cannot be a real physical party - BUT good news for everyone else - it was a Cyber Party via Zoom.
I had a few things to sort in the morning - and then mid-afternoon I joined in...we chatted...we sewed - I saw faces I haven't seen for quite a while, . . .I saw faces of people whose blogs I read and then I email with - (Hi again Bethan)
At one stage we had 11 or 12 . . . over a period of time, some left and some returned.
By 10.30 Chooky had given up . . I stayed until 11.30 by which time there were just three of us.
Not to be daunted Chooky started again about 7:00 am on Sunday.
I joined in for a while and again saw people I haven't seen for a while - (Hi Holly, Raewyn).
I worked on a variety of hand sewing things...here are a few bits:
Some backstitching on the current cross stitch
and some more crochet....always interesting how the variations make a pattern and then stops.
As a lot of people are saying - although this Covod-190 pandemic is a disastrous event for the world - so many good things have come out of it.
In this case, the opportunity for sewers all over the world to connect visually and sew together. Whilst Chooky missed out on her very special weekend (as well as the Baradine gig), so many of us were able to come together which would not have been possible without the push.
A huge thanks to Chooky for instigating & organising and especially making sure that the OS people had an opportunity to be involved.
It was a lot of fun - we learnt a lot - not all sewing related - and we certainly got an insight into life in other parts of the world.
