Friday Night Sew In...

Wendy over at Sugarlane Designs is running FNSI now, so firstly many thanks to Wendy for organising this great event.
Last night, I spent some time sewing up some more donated squares into a blanket for the needy. I had a strict time limit on this...only until 7.30!


And then it was time to grab my 2 cubes of Christmas fabrics and sort through looking for fabrics with smallish designs on them. Then I cut out some long hexagons. By then it was time to sit down in front of the TV and watch the second episode of Broadchurch on ABC1, and stitch! How good an evening is that! I stitched away through another few shows until just before midnight!

This will be either a table runner or table centre
Why not use the link to Wendy's blog and the 'sign in post' to visit other FNSI ers and see what lovely things they were working on.

I'm hoping to try my hand at paper piecing...everyone makes it look so easy. Nice knitting as well!

Hi Maria. Love your knitting. Good to see some long hexagons - I know them as coffin hexagons which is a bit macabre!. Hope you are enjoying Broadchurch - you will never guess 'who dun it'! I will say no more.

By the way - it was filmed in West Bay and when we were in UK just after Easter we went to West Bay and wondered why it was so busy! At that point I think we were half way through the series and had them recording at home for when we got back.

Great projects Maria. You just reminded me I missed Broadchurch. Hugs.....

What a lovely knitted blanket, pretty Christmas fabrics too.

Broadchurch was a great series, the ending wasn't how I imagined it to be though.........I shall say no more, my lips are sealed, lol.
