I had such fun for FNSI last night, everyone left at 7:00 p.m. so I could start my sewing! I sewed the 'Tis the Season apron by Leanne Beasley, choosing navy fabric and white thread to suit my friend. The apron sewed together pretty quickly, then I was able to get comfy and start the hand sewing. I managed to complete about half of the stitching by 11:00 p.m. so I was happy to wake up to a rainy day ... the perfect excuse to sit and finish it! Now to decide if I wait until Christmas before I give it to my friend ... I think it may be a "just because"gift so she can get it soon! The photos don't really show the true colour, the fabric is a lovely rich navy with a linen-look grain to it. What a nice feeling to get something finished from my To Do List!

This week I have continued stitching away in my spare moments on my Vignette quilt. I tend to have a mental count going on in my head - I have 40 red flowers to stitch, 4 more to go and I am halfway - and this spurs me on to get another flower finished! Does anyone else work like that?Well, I must get onto some Saturday chores!! Happy sewing.
