Last night's FNSI resulted in 2 of the chair bags being made, and half the binding sewn down on the quilt - I was somewhat distracted by the tennis, so progress was slower.

Well, last night was my first Friday Night with Friends. Early in the night I went walking into our bedroom without turning on the light, and stubbed my toe badly on a chair which isnt usually there. It is so painful but…
If I wasnt signed to do FNWF I think I would have been in a sad and sorry crumpled heap of misery. But I couldnt do that, so I gritted my teeth, suffered the pain , and carried on like a trooper. Here is the end result of my painful night.
All the pieces cut, and the applique pieces in place. Now to stitch them down.
In spite of my “terrible” injury, it was a very productive night. I had forgotten how long it takes to prepare applique with such little pieces.
And thank you Cheryl for organising our very wonderful FNWF. It is such fun.
My toe is badly bruised, swollen and a bit painful to walk around, but not as bad as it was last night.
Tonight I am able to join in FNWF for the first time. It will be wonderful stitching along with other bloggy friends. It is not too late to join in , just click on the link to sign up.
Tonight I am going to work on another UFO – one that didnt get onto my long list. Last year at the Mad Quilters Gathering I bought a pattern – Market Day Wallet from the Birdhouse, and a small pack of fabrics. I started working on it, but then it went into the container – until today.
So this is what I am working with – plus I will probably need a couple of other scrappy pieces.
I wonder how far I will get tonight.
Another generation of creative kids? Kai and Charlie enjoy their crafty activities.
Thinking of those in Tasmania with the dreadful bushfires and extreme heat. Keep safe. Please, no more loss of life.
