FNwF and Chookshed party

What a busy weekend it has been so far - and it's only Saturday afternoon!

Last night was the first Friday of the month so time for Friday Night with Friends hosted by Cheryll. Many thanks for getting us together again Cheryll and you can see who joined in here

It was a wet afternoon here so I got an early start and finished off a pincushion that I have been making for the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade next week so no pictures now. I then moved on to work on my swap hexies for the month.


It's the first week of the month so the next set of instructions came for the Red Manor House BOM. This month we have another eight applique blocks to make.  I have completed one block and started work on another yesterday evening.


I have decided to add a small button to the centre of each of the large flowers.

Also this week we have a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour - pink.


I even managed to find eight pink fabrics that I had not used in last years pink block.

Of course this weekend its time for the annual Chookshed birthday party.


In the past I have enjoyed stitching along while Chooky and friends party and sew in the Chookshed but this year things are different! Chooky organised a zoom link up for her party and invited me along. The party started yesterday evening at 11pm my time, just as I was off to bed so I popped in this morning for half an hour and then again this afternoon and sewed along for a while. It was so lovely to see and speak to people that I have been chatting to in blogland for the last four or five years. There were people coming and going all the time because of course we are all in different time zones. Great fun and thank you so much Chooky for organising it.

Monday is the first day of PPPP 2020


If you want to find out more  then pop over to Ida's blog here. And I shall be back on Monday with my first PPPP post.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Your pin cushions are beautiful, and the collection looks great together. With the time zone differences, I think i missed you at the Zoom meeting, but perhaps next time. It certainly was a lot of fun.
