Friday Night Sew In - and I nearly missed out!


After spending a little while yesterday afternoon finishing off the embellishing of this piece


I spent some time in the garden. When I came back indoors I thought I would catch up with a few blogs while I had some coffee and that is when I realised that it was the third Friday - FNSI! And to think I had nearly missed out. So I raced over to Wendy's place here to see if I was in time to sign up - which I was. I see now that I was not the only one late on parade as two people signed up after me. Anyway, you can use that link to go and catch up with what everyone was working on last night. Many thanks Wendy for hosting us again.

So it was lovely to spend the evening with friends working on my next crazy project and this is how far I got.


I sewed the lace down first of all and then realised that it made quite a strong diagonal line so decided to add the curved line using chain feather stitch to soften it up a bit and lead the eye round the block. There was just time to add the spiders web and that was my evening over.

So that was my FNSI - hope everyone had a good one and I shall be catching up with a few blogs soon. Have a great weekend.

Very beautiful. I have a couple friends that are in a Crazy Quilt Club. Such details you ladies produce. Good job!

Such beautiful pieces! At the Saskatchewan workshops I took one called "embellished purse" which was similar to this type of work. I haven't finished it yet. I feel like I need lessons in how to decide what to add where. I suppose that the more one does, the better one gets at making those decisions.

Your garden time sounds relaxing! Have you had more rain lately? It's always so inspiring to see your crazy pieces. Did you dye your green lace? I love the rich, soft green of it.

Happy stitching,
Judy
