A little stitching...

I started out by gathering some supplies.

A girl's gotta have a little sustenance for serious creative activities - Right.

I finished off the little cat stitchery and,

gathered some fabrics for a little bag making.

Then I curled up on the couch and indulged in a little hooky activity.
Green hat started at Tuesday craft group and worked on at NCB is now finished.

More of the red crochet. I started the second piece on Thursday, it is growing really quickly.

I used some leftover white yarn to try out a pattern and today I went to Spotlight for some yarn to make the real thing. I could have a big whine about not being able to find the colour that I thought I needed, but I got something pretty anyway. May just have to replan my outfit around the new colour.

Thanks to Heidi for hosting Friday night Sew in even if I did get distracted from my sewing projects by the crochet ones.

Hope your Saturday is filled with creative moments.

A girl just has to have that sustenance to keep her going (Im sitting here stuffing peppermint chocolate into my mouth )

I got almost less than nothing done for FNSI, so I'll just have to live vicariously through your achievements. Well done! The cat sticthery looks wonderful as does the crochet.

(Why is it that when we're looking for something we can never find exactly what we need ?)

That cat embroidery is just so cute. Even if you did get distracted from sewing with crochet, you made progress on two projects, so I'd say you had a productive FNSI.

Wow, great stuff!

Those M&M's look stunning in the bowl....they wouldn't last long here in my house, though! :o)
