FNSI...

Third Friday night of the month is Friday Night Sew In...so what did I get up to?
Firstly DH and I headed off to a fundraiser for the Parish...a Trivia Night...
As usual each 'Table' brought nibblies...
As well as Trivia questions we played a few games of 'heads and tails'...this activity always raises a few dollars as you pay a gold coin to play...
We answered lots of questions and the brains of our team got a good 'work out' lol! After a couple of hours it was all over until next time. Our quiz master, Paul does a great job! 



After the tidying up it was time to head home for a belated FNSI...

A few days ago a friend left a bag of knitted and crocheted squares on my veranda...there were lots of the small crocheted squares...



I decided to sew the squares into blocks of 4 and then put all those blocks into a blanket. So I started that last night...

There are LOTS of the pink ones so a few of them I have started crocheting more rounds so that those squares can be put with other 10 inch squares and make yet another blanket. I did this one last night...

I'm heading off to a Knit and Natter this morning so will continue making my 'four patch' blocks while I catch up on the nattering :-)
(After 2 years of our team winning the Trivia Night, we tied with another team for second place and the winners had beaten us by one point...it was a great night of fun!)

Well done on the quiz front Maria, even though you were second. We won the quiz we did last Sunday, much to our surprise! Lots of lovely squares to keep you out of mischief - or not as the case may be. xx
