Friday Night with Friends

Well it is the first time I have been able to join in FNWF for ages so I was very excited to be stitching away with everyone. 

First off I stitched all my little xmas decorations onto their backgrounds in readiness to put them together. These were from the class we did in August with Lisa from FignBerry Creations.

Then a bit of stitchery was in order -
So all in all quite a productive Friday night.

Now I havn't shown you the centre block for my Natures Journey  stitchalong I am doing with lots of others -
 Very pleased I have managed to keep up (so far). It's a bit hard to see but there are lots of diamonds handstitched on around the outside of the border.  Next part - cutting and sewing together 400 x 2 inch squares.  Need I say more lol.

It has been a busy week or so - two gorgeous friends, two gorgeous daughters and one gorgeous sister all have birthdays.  I ran out of time to make something for dear Shez, but when  I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it for my other lovely friend, Keryn as it reminded me of her gorgeous sheep  -

And finally, a couple of weeks ago I had a lovely win over at Buttermilk Basin. These were the three lovely patterns that arrived -
 

Very lucky indeed. Hope you all had fun stitching Friday night and a lovely weekend. Cheryl
