Friday Night with Friends.

My FNwF started early in the day. I traced out Jenny's new stitchery from her lovely Vintage Kitchen BOM & Wendy's lovely free BOM. As it was a cold & rainy afternoon i spent it stitching & watching Steel Magnolias & Philadelphia. The result ?
Whilst stitching my dinner of pea & ham soup was cooking away in the slow cooker. Perfect dinner for a cold evening. :) After tea it was back to my wreath. Boy those holly leaves take some doing.
Those 5 finished ones get added to the 6 i did Thursday night. I cut out what remained of the light green leaves ready to stitch today/night & hopefully i'll get a start on the dark green leaves. Maybe i'll have a finished wreath by next week, :)

Pop on over to our lovely host Cheryll to find links to see what all the other lovely ladies got up to last night.
