Results for Friday Night Sew-In……

DSCF8447

Friday night saw me finally finishing off this stitchery by stapling  it to a canvas, it’s now ready to go into the gift basket…..I know, I know I was going to keep this one for myself but as soon as I added the border to this stitchery I knew just who it needed to go to lol…. not to worry I have another one traced out and ready to stitch up for me this time with the leftover border fabric to make mine into a mini wall hanging for my free standing hanger Smile

I also finished of this small freebie stitchery from Anni Downs so into the gift basket it goes for Christmas gift giving this year.

Friday night also saw me taking a break from stitching to work on these squares to turn them into…….

the start of another blanket but this time it’s not a baby one but queen size, it will end up being 15 x 15 squares and will be heading off to my Father-in-law for him to use in his raffle to help raise money for the club he’s in……wish me luck as it needs to be finished by early March YIKES!!! I better get my skates on!

I’m off for another cuppa and hopefully once all the household chores and grocery shop are done I can sit down and surf the other blogs that joined in Friday night and see what everyone else got up to. Thanks Wendy for hosting another fabulous night of sewing with great friends from around the world Smile
