My Friday night, and more family pics

I seem to have a number of stitcheries prepared and ready for stitching at the moment, which is a bonus when it comes to nights like FNWF, saving on a last minute rush to prepare something to work on.




Last night I finished the stitcheries for my Stitch-A-Long project, Bon Noel by Natalie Bird, from her book "Tis the Season".  There are such fun little stitcheries in it and we could pick the ones we wanted to include in our little wallhanging.  This morning I made up the wallhanging, which was very quick and easy to do.
    

I also did some more work on the stitchery for Vicki's project from Lets Get Stitched.  She designed a little wallhanging - Monday is Washing Day.  It is a fun little one to stitch also.
On Easter Saturday we had a houseful of family, which was so wonderful.  These boys were very absorbed in watching "Happy Feet" - Kai, no1 son Dunx, and his son Sammy.

Peta, being the only girl, chose to spend a few quiet moments by herself.

Your project turned out very lovely. And I see that your stitches were not bothered by the sashing as well. I may have to rethink mine now.

Love the washing day stitchery... funny how cute little designs like this make a mundane chore like hanging out washing look pretty and sweet and romantic!! Or maybe I'm doing the laundry wrong... lol...

You sound well organised for Friday night stitching..that is a good idea to have a few things traced out..looks like you had a lovely Easter

Wendy B said...

that one's been a popular one this Friday night hasn't it Marilyn??? Lot's of Christmas stitching happening...I only wish I had the book so I could join in too!!! LOL but that would mean adding to my 89 or so UFOs!!! Maybe not, on second thoughts! Loving your Vicki stitchery too those boys are super absorbed aren't they! Bonding time!
