Friday Night Sew-in Review

I always expect to get more done at a Friday Night Sew-In than I can really get done before I am to tired to really do it well.  I did finish hand sewing the appliques on the center block for the BOM that I have joined at Gum Tree Designers and picked out the fabric I want to frame it with.
 I also quilted one of two pillow tops.  I am finding the machine that I have does not quilt very well.  Oh how I would love a fancy smancy machine.
I cut out a couple pieces of flannel for the blocks that I mentioned on yesterdays post but not enough to even brag about.  Today, I need to get some house cleaning done because I have two friends spending next Friday night here and I am not one to clean after I get home from work through the week.  So out comes the vacuum, dust rag and mop.  I hope you all had a productive Friday night!  Blessings!

I am proud of you for getting done what you did. So far this morning I have: given Reuben a bath, made Huevos Rancheros, but now I am on the laptop and need to be trimming the bushes in my yard, they are completely out of control and with the warm weather this week they will probably be budding soon.....then a cold snap will kill them all. So is the weather in Tennessee! Don't clean too much!

I love your applique and embroidered block... I'm seeing so much of this online that I'm starting to wonder what I'm missing...

So beautiful! I love this little bird stitchery/applique. The fabric you selected to frame it is a perfect pairing. Also, Ladybug has stepped out of Mary Engelbreit illustration! Giving her hugs and a virtual scratch behind the ears!
