Friday Night Sewing.....

It's always so much fun sewing with others...... thanks for having us Cheryll......


I took in some goodies to eat and drink....

Hubz home brew is very good.... I know Debbie was excited about having this around!


There was also home made fruit cake (and the option of tea for the more conservative!)


I finished off these 5 little birdie stitcheries which are to be made into decorations for my book club fellow readers....


Meanwhile I heard that the flower mini I made has arrived at it's new home....


Anorina is hosting a scrap challenge and had made a flower mini... so I had to be very secret about showing mine since the swap was going to her....

raw edge stitching over the flowers and some random feathers quilted around the edge


Righto, Gotto Go... weekend......... off to the waterpark with DD2 and grandieboy batman.... we are celebrating Jack's birthday from a distance ... he is our youngest grandieboy and turns 2 today....


what a cutie... happy birthday tough guy ....
