We had a great time at Friday Night Sew-In last night! The time went by too quickly as always, but in addition to the visiting and catching up with each other's lives, some progress was made on quilting projects. I got all the orange squares laid out and ready to sew together for my Knot block for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Then I was forced to do some hand stitching to fix one of my daughter's favorite tops... "no pressure Mom, I'll just stand here and wait, because I really want to wear that... right now"! She learned that putting a beaded top in the washing machine results in the threads being stretched. So I re-attached the beads and off she went to her party, and FNSI resumed.
Some celebrating went on...we were so happy to be together for Friday Night Sew-In!
Note to self, when you see pink elephants on parade, you have had too much to drink!!
I got my block sewn for the Erin Fall Fair block challenge. There were 3 fabrics in the block kit - one of the beige backgrounds, the green in the lower left spool, and the button border. I can't wait to see all the blocks submitted!
We enjoyed watching some of Bonnie Hunter's Quiltcam. Sandy and I went to a Cathedral Stars class with Bonnie in Michigan two years ago and last night we got to see each other's quilts. Well, Sandy's is a finished quilt, and you might have guessed that mine is still a top. It won a 3rd prize ribbon at the Fergus Fall Fair last weekend! It's amazing how similar the quilts look, but also how different in the chosen colourways. After seeing Sandy's quilt, I am really motivated to finish mine. And after FNSI, I am so stoked to sew that I can't wait to finish my chores today and get to my machine! Happy Quilting!
