A late report from my Friday Night with Friends, sorry. One good thing about my Friday night was that I didn't have to cook tea - for the third time this week, that must be a record! I hadn't been sure what we were doing but we ended up going into town to the Dairy Company store where we buy a lot of our farm goods (RD1). They invited all their suppliers in for a meal (Spit roasts, very yum) and a bit of fun.
However I joined my fellow bloggers and FNwF-ers while in the car on the way there ...
|40 minute trip, you can get a fair bit done.|
...and once we got home I pulled out this...
|40 minute trip means the wine had worn off so I could stitch :-)|
Just Takes Two block.
I've been feeling the urge to do some needleturn in the evenings lately but haven't had the time to pull out my 'little people'/Quiltmania project - sorting colours etc takes me an age. Instead I decided to work on some more of my Just Takes Two.
I started this back in 2012, when the blocks were released fortnightly (I think). I pull it out from time to time then put it away again. This is the first time I have had all the blocks out for a long time
|Unpressed but you get the idea!|
The two blocks I've been doing lately are in the foreground.
|Another angle. A lot of the blocks are foundation paper pieced, which|
I enjoy doing but find I get a little tired of them after a bit. I need to EQ7 some
and convert them to normal piecing.
My whole weekend seemed to be one of snatching moments to sew... because it isn't long until the silly season starts (calving that is, not Christmas), I'd really like to have some more decent sewing sessions before I'm floundering in the mud with cows and calves!
And speaking of Christmas, on Saturday (when I know it was still Friday Night elsewhere in the world!) I did manage some more on my Christmas in July swap, *here* or *here*. Posting day is just a few weeks away so I was pleased to finish this one....
54 people signed up for FNwF this time round - so I have some visiting to do! Thank you to Cheryll for hosting FNwF and also the Christmas in July swap :-)
Thank you for visitng, I hope you have a happy, creative week,
