Friday Night with Friends






I spent Friday afternoon with friends too! Along with millions of other women around the world I took part in the annual Womens World Day of Prayer service which we hold in the Chapel of our local hospital. The service this year was prepared by the women of The Philippines and focused on fairness. We each had a copy of this colourful picture depicting the balance between brightness and darkness, lush and plentiful harvests on the right, industry, destruction and poverty on the left.

It was a beautiful service to share in.

So in the evening I was sewing with friends around the world and many thanks to Cheryll for getting us organised.
I was working on my swap hexie flowers tablecloth and made good progress adding a couple more flowers.


Do pop across to Cheryll's blog to see whet everyone got up to.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Hello Lin, lovely to see your post.
My compliments to whoever the artist of that painting was - it's so telling in so many countries around the world. Unfair state of affairs. Also to the organisers of the service you attended.

Your tablecloth is beautiful, lovely colours and they all look so nice together.

Happy and bright daffodils! Cheers now :D)

Your hexies are looking very pretty. I have been receiving blue hexies as well. I haven't started sewing them up and I am not sure how I am going to put them together yet.

Beautiful picture to look at while at your service, lots of women from the Phillipines seem to work overseas to support their families. Your hexie table cloth is looking beautiful.

Such pretty hexies! I really admire tiny hexies, but don't have the patience to do them. I don't know why because they seem like the perfect take-along project. Your daffodils are lovely, too!
