Friday Night

Last night I joined with our Friday Night Sewing with Friends, a Facebook group where those who can do so  "meet up" on Facebook to stitch together.

 I also joined with FNwF, organised by Cheryll.  You can visit here to check out what all the lovely participants worked on this month.  It always gives lots of inspiration to see the beautiful work.  Thank you Cheryll for organising us to stitch together again this month.

2 groups of lovely stitchers.  That made for a big party.  Susan had macarons to eat.  She posted a photo of hers and I felt just a little jealous.  You see,  I just had a plain old packet biscuit.  Hmm.  Better lift my game for next month.  Or I need to go join Susan maybe.  lol.

During the day my friend and I had got together to prepare the next appliques for our Rachels Flower Garden wall hanging.  Usually we manage to prepare 2 blocks in the day.  However we took a little road trip to purchase our kits from Faeries in My Garden.  This is the full panel from the kit.  Each flower piece is cut and used in one of the 13 projects.

We didn't get our quota finished this time.  Admittedly the delphinium one has soooooo many little pieces to trace and cut.

Last night I fused the tulips to the background, and started the delphiniums, but they are still being assembled on the baking paper. I have to cut lots of little black stars for the flower centres and that was a bit hard to do with the lack of good light.  Maybe today I will get more done.

Gorgeous blocks Marylin. Your tulips are so pretty. Love the pieced background... wow! Now let's not get into biscuit envy.... the humble packet biscuit has saved many a cup of tea from being too wet. :o)
