After completing all the things I need to get  done I managed to sit down and work on Rosalie Quinlan Best Friends Forever. ( I have now finished this one).

I only have one more stitchery to go then I have to make all the hexi's.  This project has been on the go for a long time so hopefully over the next few weeks I can get it finished.

In the early hours of Friday morning  I finished my last Twas the Night Before Christmas stitchery by Fig n Berry 2016 (just in time Lisa has released this years).

The pile of things needing to get finished is growing so I need to spend some serious time on the machine over the next few weeks.

Hand sewing and Angus quilt

Over the Christmas holidays Angus started making this quilt using Australian fabric.  He need some help matching up all the seams and last night I finished it for him.

I have been madly hand stitching Twas the night before Christmas,  I have finished another 2 only 1 more to go before I can assemble it.  Lisa (Fig n Berry) has a new  BOM starting February so I was determined to catch up before the next one.

I have enjoyed making this one, there is a lot of stitching  but when you get on a roll you a finished in no time.  Angus picked variegated thread for this one.

Well im off to a school meeting then cubs so dont think I will get to do any sewing tonight.

First Friday Night With Friends

Love been able to sit down and know that I am sewing with like minded friends.

This time I pulled out my hexi's, I put the borders on, now I need to get more basted onto the cream to be able to call it finished ( a long time Ufo).

I have started on another month of Fig n Berry's twas the night before Christmas bom quilt.  I am hoping to get this one finished before the new one starts in February.  2 more to go after this one.

Now that school has gone back, swimming has started, soccer starts next week looks like I will have time for lots of hand sewing and machine sewing projects.
