Friday Night with Friends...

Last night, being the first Friday of the month, was FNwF...although I should add that due to the number of time zones around the world, it is still Friday night in many places! lol, Cheryll organised this event each month and this time 52 people signed up to join in.

I traced a design for a new stitching project...just a glimpse as once again this is a secret project :-)





And I knitted...yet again a secret project but the recipient doesn't read my blog so I can show more than a glimpse.



Unfortunately my forearms and wrists were a bit troublesome again for some reason when I knitted yesterday afternoon, so during FNwF, I only knitted in 'fits and starts'. Consequently  during the evening I just did 3 colour changes.

So for some of the evening whilst resting my arms, I googled using the iPad and subsequently visited some interesting sites...hmmm...in this case the word 'interesting' probably means sites with the potential for spending money on even more fabrics :-/

I particularly liked this  2011 post from Cabbage Quilts blog where this blogger shares all the sources that she used to build up her Liberty prints stash. I still haven't visited all the sites in her suggestions (and possibly some of the site no longer exist as it is 3 years!) but the ones that I have visited had me 'drooling'. lol. I must be good though and remember that I have signed up for a Westwood Acres Liberty Club for the next 11 months...but those scrapbags at Liberty Charms and Alice Caroline Supply are tempting interesting!

Hope your wrist and arm is feeling better. Nice projects you are making for your swap friends.

That sort of googling can be very dangerous - to the bank balance. Hope you can sort out the troubles in your wrists & hands.

Maria, stay away from that list!! you will get more than enough from the club you just joined!

I hope your soreness doesn't last too long - but yes I agree that googling is a great way to find lots of inspiration

Hi Maria, sorry to hear that your wrists are still playing up.
I know what you mean about those Liberty prints. They are just beautiful, and very tempting to give the old credit card a good work-out. Jean.

Your knitting looks lovely, wonder what it will be?? Hope your arms feel better soon, it's hard not to be able to do what you love.

Your knitted project looks lovely - isn't it hard to do a blogpost while working on secret projects?!
