Friday Night Sew In.

Taking advantage of a day to myself i started reasonably early.

I started by making this simple block. It's for a fellow blogger celebrating her 50th this year & asked for blocks to make a quilt. Great idea, i may borrow it as it also my 50th this year. :) Next thing to make is the 3rd block in the 6" sampler sew along.
That done it was time to work on THAT QUILT.
TA DA. Gossip In The Garden is officially a flimsy. What did i learn in the making? Never to make it at all. Joking aside i really did enjoy making the quilt & love it. Only hassle i really encountered was doing the mitres on the outside border. Not perfect but i don't care as the quilt is for me. After that marathon of doing the borders with the quick unpick & i becoming very good friends indeed i decided enough for the day(once the flimsy was photographed) & off to read a book. Last night i did pick up my needle & worked on the last snowman. I didn't do a lot as i was so tired.
Only a little bit to go.

Thankyou Wendy for hosting us again. Pop over to Wendys to see what the other ladies got up to last night.

Happy Stitching,
