FNWF - February - the real one!

After a little hiccup last Friday - Cheryll invited us over for a "Sew-In".

I had a sewing day with one of my groups - we were celebrating Lynda's Birthday, so we had morning tea so we could have a candle on a cake! and then lunch. . not much sewing got done.  We also spent time enjoying Lynda opening her presents.
this year we are gifting presents that start with each person's initials - L G & B for Lynda
I bought her:
a Bobbin Box
a Blue Bowl filled with a Lime, Grapes & Blueberrires
Guterman thread in Lemon, Green & Blue
ric rac in Lemon Green & Blue
a Bubbly Bunny (a chocolate)
a Glue Pen refill
a packet of Lolly Gobble Blissbombs

 But we had a fun time and talked about current & future projects...LOL

For FNWF - I sewed a lot of 3.5" squares together to make 14 sets of vertical rows for the two RSC 2023 quilts. (10 to go plus some fill in squares...)
I have the horizontal rows done.  I have a retreat coming up at the end of March, so hope to put it together then - taking advantage of the large design walls.

Thanks Cheryll for hosting us - I hope everyone had a fun time.

What a fun way to celebrate a birthday! The sky's the limit with initials. That's very smart to save that project for retreat. Design walls are so helpful. Just don't let all the chatter have you sewing the squares out of order! Lol!
