Friday sewing....

Thank you Wendy for hosting FNSI for me and 58 others ... I had a fun day.. hope you did too.....

Kris came along to join me and Bev (no blog) during Friday day and lookie what she brought along with her....

..... HOME MADE JAM ......


You can see I have already tucked into the strawberry jam and the other is orange and ginger which I shall be having on my Sunday morning toast....

There is just nothing like full fruit home made jam, thanks so much Kris... and such cute little jars they came in too! 

Well, once my sticky little hands were washed (you cannot eat strawberry jam without getting sticky!!)
I became aquainted with this little blue bird.... I love the printed white fabric I found for the stitchery - it is giving a lovely dimension to the picture...


... then later in the evening after I fed Hubz I made up another block for the A4A quiltalong - only one little bit of unpicking to get my points to meet....


these are all the blocks we have done so far....


I am enjoying each block and getting tips and hints for improvement as we go along


Righto, Gotto Go.... maybe I'll make up a pincushion.....
