Friday night with friends

This week I have concentrated on finishing my Mrs Beasley block and Friday night with friends was the perfect time to keep stitching.  I had completed the dresden block and applique earlier in the week so on Friday night I finished stitching the pink flowers.  On Saturday I was able to get in some stitching as well, finishing off the name block.  I decided to applique the leaves around the flower rather than the embroidered leaves in the pattern.  I look forward to catching up with everyone's Friday sewing and a big thank you to Cheryll for hosting us all.  Wendy xx

  31. Hello Wendy, great to sew with you on FNWF. I'm loving your block. The colours are so pretty, in fact I always like your colour choices:o) I finished my block 2 of Chateau Hexagon over the weekend so I'll have to do a blog post sometime soon so you can have a look at it. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am. It's rather fun not knowing what you're going to be doing next isn't it. You might like to pop back over to our blog as Cornelia has finally posted what she got up to on FNWF. Have a great week.
