Just a few stitches

So last night was Friday night sew in for July - hosted by Heidi and Bobbi.

I joined in, picked my project to work on, I really want to get this finished this week it has been in progress for more than a year and it is not even very big.

What happened to my Friday???

Well first of all I had to drive across town and on the way I stopped at a fabric store that was having a sale - gotta love that word. I saw my sister at the fabric store so I guess that affliction is inherited!

Then I had to collect the latest of my broken things - now fixed.

Then go to the office to get supplies for my afternoon work.

Then drive in the opposite direction to visit clients.

I got back from work at 10pm by then there just wasn't very much of Friday night left - but I thought I could manage a few stitches.

Want to know how much of this I did on Friday night?

One and half of the windmill legs in chain stitch,

Pinned the batting and backing fabric to the top

and

Quilted around the perimeter of the house.

By then the clock had ticked over to Saturday!

I spent Saturday at the Quilt and Craft fair in Melbourne, so no stitching has been accomplished today, maybe tomorrow??
Hope your weekend is spent with the people you like most doing the things you like best!
Happy Creating

Very nice scene. I do love your cushion at the top of your page though. Is this something that you have made at some time?

I just read further down your page - feel a bit of a dill now. I still love the cushion

Your scene looks great. Love the chookies at the bottom of the windmill.

This is really sweet. I cannot belive you came home and started sewing at 10pm. Are you mad girl? However it was well worth the effort.
