Friday sew in

I have just joined in "Friday sew-in" on 19th February which entails getting everything organised and me in my "jammies" sewing along with other like minded people in their "jammies" each in our own sewing rooms.

What a great way to keep on top of projects and at some point on Saturday we put up piccies on our blogs of our effort/s. I do not belong to a quilting group but this will feel like I do. Now all I have to do is forget the "braindead" Friday night feeling I usually suffer from after working all week and get stuck straight into it after dinner. Note to self - no wine on Friday night - it can be my AFD or perhaps I should and I would be game to try stippling when I am feeling relaxed. The mere mention of the word I break into a "sweat".

I am looking forward to my first Friday night sew-in and have just the project in mind. I have another order for a baby bag. I will post piccies on Saturday 20th.

What's in the box?

Firstly let me wish you all a very happy, safe and creative 2010.

I usually do not make New Year's resolutions simply because I break each and every one of them by the end of the first week but I did read a good suggestion on the craft forum about getting ahead with some "gifties" and thought that this is a goer. I think I can uphold this resolution for more than a week - hopefully. Hence the box.

Ready to peak inside

Let me give you a closer look

I find that these items make great "extra" gifts to add in, they are quick to make up and use some of those ever increasing scraps lying around my sewing room.

I know that the box is looking rather empty but if I can keep up this new resolution I hope to have it full by Christmas 2010 provided I do not raid it too much during the year.

I will let you know when the next lot of "gifties" is ready for public display.

In the meantime happy sewing.
