Friday Night Sew In...

The third Friday night of the month is that sewing/crafting session in Blogland, known as FNSI. Once again I joined in with fellow bloggers from all around the globe. 
I continued to work on my Instagram  DownunderHexieswap as I have a bit to catch up on as I didnt do much stitching on this project while we were away.
But I'm slowly getting there, as they say :-). Here are some that are ready to be posted to their new owners.

Also last night I wove/stitched in any ends on a blanket I've made from squares; I crocheted a few on the cruise, I also made some donated squares larger by crocheting extra rounds. But the really special donation of squares I received was 12 from my DD1. As I'm seeing her today, I've worked throughout this past week to join all the squares, double crochet around the edge and last night was neatening all those ends.  
My daughter will be thrilled to see her squares included in this blanket which now will go to K4BN.
I found a few more 'ends' when I was arranging the blanket for a photo...so a bit more work to do! Lol

Daughter's squares have sewn up beautifully, how exciting for her to see all her hard work become a blanket....pretty squares too. Is she new to crochet? Your hexies are coming along nicely too.

Your swap hexies are looking good! I remember seeing a few of them.

It's always amazing how good all the different squares look when crocheted together. Nice to have DD join in with the squares..

Die kleinen Hexies sind ja zauberhaft und die gehäkelte Decke sieht richtig gemütlich aus!
