...To this

Well I did it. Here is the bag I was working on last night during Friday night sew-in. I had another order for a baby bag for a girl and I found it was just the right thing to do for night sewing - even though my sewing room is well lit I find it hard to sew dark colours of a night.

It was very peaceful sewing late into the night - no phones ringing, no stopping to get meals or coffee - just me and my machine. I am hoping that will be on again next month.

I am looking forward to seeing what others have achieved during their Friday night sew-in.

From this .....

Tonight is my first Friday night sew-in and I will be ready in about 2 hours to start. I see that about 180 have put their name down to take part tonight and I have been doing some blog hopping over the past couple of days and I think that most of those involved are in the northern hemisphere which makes me being a "downunder" one of the first to make a start.

After dinner, which is a "heat & eat" in other words left-overs and the kitchen is tidy, I will get into something more comfy and cool as it is another warm night here - not like what I have been seeing on many blogs - SNOW - and lots of it!!!

Anyway the photo of the fabric above is what I am using tonight. I have already made a start - the cutting out - so I will see how far I go getting it finished.
Pop back sometime tomorrow and I will have a piccie of the result - hopefully.

I had better go and get organised and to all those taking part tonight enjoy and have fun. You will most probably be sewing when I am sleeping. I look forward to seeing what everyone is doing. There is some lovely work on those blogs.
