Friday Night Sew In October

Well i started my day with this kit. Spitting into a tube(not fun) to have my DNA tested to discover where my ancestors come from. Now to wait 6 to 8 weeks for the result.

Next up was some cooking
Chocolate chip cookies followed by
chocolate chip & banana muffins.

Then last night i started stitching this lovely little hanging
I ironed the transfer on about 2 days ago & it's disappearing on me. :(.

I finished these little ornaments earlier in the week. They were bought precut so they were done in a couple of hours.
Pop over to visit Wendy our very lovely hostess for the links to see who all joined in last night & the projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

My Sewing Week

I finished off my Christmas stitchery. Breathed a big sigh of relief when the last stitch went into the dreaded satin stitch.
Needs an ironing. lol. :) Then i needed to find a project to work on as i had none prepared or really fancied anything that might still need to be finished. I found this little cross stitch up
Forgot to press it before gluing it into the card. :(. That is what being exhausted does to you. The brain doesn't want to work. Next i found a Christmas kit i purchased years ago.
Finished these little cuties last night. Now to find another project to work on.

Happy Sewing,

Friday Night with Friends October

I was hoping to work on the borders for the hexie quilt but i had a trip to the orthodontist with my daughter. By the time i got home i didn't feel like sewing. I did however pick up my embroidery last night.
I finished the vine on the top right corner & started the satin stitch. I really hate satin stitch but love the look of it. There is still quite a bit of satin stitch to do.

Pop over to visit our lovely hostess Cheryll to find the links to see what projects were worked on last night.

Happy Stitching,

Whilst i was waiting to get into the patchwork shop to buy the border fabric for the hexie quilt i started this little stitchery.
Love this cute Christmas stitchery. It's from Fig 'n' Berry Creations. The thread i'm using is Hugs 'n' Kisses by Cottage Garden Threads.

I picked up the border fabric during the week. Now to summon the enthusiasm to sew it on. :)

Happy Stitching,
