Friday Night Sew In January 2018

Goodness the sew in rolled around quick. I'm sure i've lost January somewhere.  Sadly i'm sure 2018 will race by in a blink of an eye also. I joined Wendy our very lovely hostess for some sewing yesterday.

 I started the dat with my hearts quilt. I reattached row 6 the right way up, pieced the remaining 9 rows, added them, the borders & finally after all these years it's a flimsy.
What a marathon effort. The rows a sewn diagonally which makes for awkward sewing especially with the weight of the quilt.

Later in the afternoon when i'd finished sewing & having a nice cold drink i spotted my cat in what looks to be an uncomfortable position but she obviously wasn't as she quite often lays like this.

Last night i finished stitching this little row of stars

then i added some coffins to my quilt. from the yellow up on the left side & some across the top.

Thankyou Wendy for hosting us once again. Pop over here to find links to see what projects everyone worked on.

Happy stitching,

Cat's amazingly make themselves comfortable in the most awkward looking positions.
Coffins are multiplying beautifully..great going.

All your creations look amazing Jeanette. I did laugh at you cat ... sorry, but my friend was just complaining how she sets up these cute little cat beds around the house for her furry friends ... & they sleep on the cat scratching pole!!!

You certainly got a lot done during FNSI. The cat definitely looks like it's comfortable even if it's bed isn't!

Your blue hearts are gorgeous! I've never sewn diagonally like that, it doesn't sound comfortable, lol. Your kitty is too cute - they don't seem to have any bones at times, do they! Cut little stars and your coffins are looking great!
