Friday Night with Friends

The beginning of another month - well we are a fair way through it already! - and so it's time to get together with friends for our virtual sew-in. Many thanks to Cheryll for hosting us again - you can see what everyone was working on here


Sadly no pretty pics from me as I was working on secret stitching!

However, I did find time to try out my new light pad and traced out this Gardeners Journal block.


Oh wow, bliss! No more sellotaping designs to the window to trace them out. Really pleased with my purchase and wish I had bought one before. It is so slim and light and tucks neatly under my desk. Perfect.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Friday stitching and that you have a great weekend.

Look forward to seeing the secret sewing later.
Yes the A4 size lightbox is great and you did a good job of tracing your GJ block. Happy stitching

Oooh! Look forward to seeing your secret stitching!
Nice block. That’ll be fun to stitch! The light box sounds a great idea ..... better than using a Tupperware box with a torch in anyway!😊
Hope you are having a great weekend.

Love your Gardener's Journal block. They are such lovely blocks to stitch. The designs were from a lady from Western Australia called Pat Weir-Smith. Unfortunately I no longer have my book to tell you any other details....but she may come up on Google...cheers xx
Thanks also for your lovely comment on my blog post.

The light pad sounds great. Until it broke in an unfortunate accident I used a special light my husband set up in a small fish aquarium! It worked perfectly.

I too sticky tape pictures to the window to trace them. That light pad is such a wonderful idea.

Rachel a dit…

I love the look of your new design, and my goodness, yes, I've taped something to a window to trace it, and it was not a pleasant experience. The lightpad will make such a difference!

Happy days

The Gardener's Journal block is going to be a lovely stitchery. Tracing takes a lot of time. Happy your light pad worked well.

Glad you had a successful night even if you cant share too much!! The new light pads are great aren't they - I've looked at them longingly!

Light pads are just the best! And now you can trace to your hearts content Lin... Gardener's Journal is a lovely project x

Your stitchery will be beautiful. I have a homemade light box, but I don't like to stitch by hand, so it is actually not in use. Secret sewing is so exciting. Are we going to see it soon?
