Friday Night With Friends

I tried to start my sewing day early but i had a commitment to meet but unfortunately the other party forgot so after waiting quite a while for a phone call that never came i thought screw it i'm going to get on with my sewing. My 5th block from Gail Pans bom has been waiting for me to get back to cutting it out.
I cut out all the background pieces,
then started to prepare my applique. It's quite time consuming preparing applique & i didn't get as much done as i'd hoped because my adorable GS was coming for a wee visit. Last night was spent embroidering the wee mice for the pincushions.
Pop on over to our lovely hostess Cheryl to visit other friends were stitching last night.

Happy Stitching,

I love the little mouse stitcheries! :0)

Ondrea said...

Those little stitcheries are quite lovely.The applique preparation will be well worth the effort once you start stitching it all together. You have just reminded me to get back onto my appliques for Meadowlark which is a Gail Pan design too. Happy stitching.

Do we ever get as much done as we hoped! You seem to have achieved heaps though. Lovely work.

Love the stitcheries, it's horrible to be waiting for someone and they don't even have the decency to ring to let you know they can't make it. Glad to see you got some stitching done at least :) Barb.

Anthea said...

What a pain about the waiting Jeanette, but well done on the block preps... cute mice too!

Lyn said...

It is good to get the preparation all done so you can then sit and applique..rather frustrating waiting for someone when you have something you are just itching to get on with

Kaisievic said...

That is always so annoying, isn't it? When plans go awry? Love your sewing though.

Cath said...

I like the look of your applique and you are right....they do take ages to prepare. Happy stitching.

Sandra said...

I hate waiting, especially when things don't work out.
It looks like you still got quite a bit achieved, Well done

Looking forward to seeing your block 5 ... gorgeous red bird :)

Josie said...

What a day to get messed about! Still you managed to get loads done. Still tempting me with those gorgeous birds... Those wee mice are cute. Glad you found time to stitch them.
