Friday Night With Friends & sewing

I managed to get a bit done. No last minute happenings to change plans. Hooray. First off i cut these out
400 x 2" squares & 50 odd assorted sizes of the pink/cream in the front for part 8 of Natures Journey. Next i cut out the borders for Jenny's free BOM she offered over the last 9 months, The Vintage Kitchen.
Time to rest as "Arthur" doesn't like it much when i do so much cutting & standing. :) Then last night i finished block 9 of Wendy's free BOF. This is my version.
That done i did some more stitching on this
Monday i wanted to finish an embroidery into a wallhanging to have a last finish for August but it wasn't meant to be. I added the borders,
not sure if i like the fabric i chose now, then i couldn't find the staple gun but then the canvas is too wide at the sides. I need to find a 1/2" wide board. Not very readily available it seems.

Tuesday i made a start on a bag for my sister
& there is sits waiting patiently. Why you ask? because i got this far & the machine said no more so it's now with the machine doctor being fixed. I wish i had a 2nd machine as i've lots of sewing to do.

I also finished part 9 of Jenny's bom this week
So that is my week.

Pop over to visit Cheryll's blog to find the links to see what the other lovely ladies who joined in last night worked on.

Happy Stitching,
