Friday Night Stitching

I joined in with Cheryll at www.stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com for -


Woo hoo and I had company for a change (apart from hubby who really doesn't see what all the fuss is about).  Shez came to visit. If the truth be known we didn't start stitching til late, but I did make some progress.  I decided to do some more on a Gail Pan class project "Summer Harvest"

So this was my effort on Friday night.

And today I had done enough blocks to put a small section together -
 
And just some show and tell from an outing with friends on Thursday -
 
Found a wonderful second hand shop that we could have spent hours in, and some treasures came home.  The tin on the right I thought Shez could use for one of her wonderful sewing tins.
 
Oh and there was some fabric too (as you knew there would be).  A wonderful shop I always enjoy visiting "Quilters Harvest".  And they had a sale - buy a metre and get half a metre free, so of course I had to buy a metre of the lovely mottled stitchery fabric on the left and I was forced to take the rest for nothing.  Cheryl
