FNWF results....

So Friday was a great day to stay home and sew..... it rained and rained... and rained...

I did some quilting and this is my little warm up piece....  nice soft watery shapes...



In spite of 5" of rain and still coming down I thought I should go out to my Friday night sewing so I could stitch with cyber and in person friends ...

I got a bit bogged getting out the driveway..... so I had to go forwards....


... and back again on the other side!!!!

(I am married to a very kind and tolerant man... but he found it impossible to understand how I managed to mess up BOTH sides of the driveway! ... easy I said... too easy) ...


I'm glad I did continue on my way as there was sweet treats to be had....

Marion made this Banoffie Pie.... just very wickedly delicious....


I started sewing the smaller pieces for my Natalie Bird "In My Garden" quilt which is a Facebook Stitchalong De is hosting... 

... this is the progress I had over the evening, 


I have continued to work on my Alphabet Bears in the evenings and C is for Cupcake... and cherry.... and cute!


Righto, Gotto Go.... need to supervise the fixing of the ditches on the side of the driveway!!!

Where there is a will, there is a way. And if there is pie at the end of the trail, even better.

Hope the ditch supervision went ok.....that is a lot of rain to get! Hope it is a bit drier for you now. Love your stitching and quilting.

Maria said...

LOL see you are not the only one that backs out sideways. Shez and I do too. I am hopeless at backwards...
Pleased you went out and enjoyed your evening.
Nice waves FMQ and you are doing well with the stitchery .

You made me laugh about backing out of your driveway. I totally understand! Sewing with friends in cyber space as well as in real life sounds great, especially when there are such yummy sweets involved.

Karen S said...

That is a lot of rain!!! So pleased all you had to deal with was the driveway! And it looks like it was definitely worth catching up with some friends. Lovely stitching, too.

Jane Galley said...

Glad you didn't get stuck in a rut and managed to enjoy some cake :)

Michelle Ridgway said...

Well supper was worth getting bogged for Lol! Lovely quilting ! I am so behind in my letters...well done!

Helen said...

Hehe I can see how that could happen in the drive, lovely stitcheries !

KERYN B said...

Boy you would have needed that cake after the trauma of the driveway. With all that rain isn't it classed as an act of God?

Cheryl said...

That's a lot of rain Fiona. Loving your alphabet bears and looking forward to seeing more of your lovely In My Garden stitcheries

marina said...

what a productive night (not including the driveway issues)
have to google that pie....looks delicious.

sunny said...

I'm glad to hear your were able to get out for some stitching with friends. I love the soft colors of your quilt.

Anthea said...

Oh the poor driveway... you could always tell The Hubz that you were making initial preparations to make Mud Pies for dinner!!

Sue SA said...

After five inches of rain I am surprised you didn't get seriously bogged! Love the wavy quilting pattern, might have to try that one, where do you get these interesting patterns from?

SuperMomNoCape said...

WOW with that much rain, you were lucky to be able to get to go stitching in person with friends as well as virtually with the rest of us who signed up for FNwF. I love the colors in the quilt you are quilting. And that is a really sweet stitchery that you started working on. Your C is for Cupcake Bear is just too cute!

I recently started a Stitchery Link Party for all things hand embroidered and I would love to have you come link up this post (or one of your others) and share with my readers. http://www.supermomnocape.com/2015/05/04/vintage-embroidery-monday-stitchery-link-party-4/
