Being the first Friday night of the month means sewing virtually with a group of likeminded people. I have to say that not one stitch did happen last night as it was all about getting slabs of aqua/teal fabrics that were stitched together during the week
Onto the ironing board and pressed ready to be cut up for the next round of RSC bibs.
After that it was time to do some research for another blog hop that I have joined which involves finding a book that has been around for sometime, dusting it off and making an item from it.
After flipping through several books a few times each I kept going back to one project that I am leaning towards. A final decision is yet to be made but seeing that February is a short month that decision needs to be made very soon - just in case I am not happy with my choice and need to go to option 2, 3 or 4.
I also did some work on my Tickled Pink item. It is almost to the finish line.
During the week I met up with some friends at one of our favourite outdoor cafes.
It has cover should it be raining or extreme heat with plenty of fresh air so we figured it was a good place to meet up. There are lots of lovely walking paths around the cafe which lead down to the water and of course good coffee.
Thank you Cheryl for organising another fun Friday night again.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
Some lovely Teal fabrics there ... I love that you are making useful little items with your scraps.... great to get out and meet up with friends for coffee... the little things we used to take for granted...

It was a pleasure having you last night... I'm looking forward to seeing some Aqua real soon... EnJoY the weekend...xox
You are working with lovely fabrics there Karen. Good you can go out for coffee, and enjoy the outdoors.
Lovely teal fabrics. Nice that you were able to go out for coffee. Hugs, xx
The fabrics are lovely. Mmmmmm coffeeeeeeee. I haven't had coffee out since the beginning of the pandemic and I suspect it was extra yummy . Enjoy stitching and coffee drinking.
nice lot of teals/aquas to play with.
I'm looking forward to seeing both Pickled Pink and what you've chosen from an old book also.
A lovely spot to catch up with your friends and enjoy a coffee.
Your prep work last night will mean the rest of the month is rather productive.
That coffee spot sounds perfect for gathering and youve got lots of projects to keep you busy
You had a busy Friday getting organised. You just reminded me that I'd better get a move on with my pink project too!
So nice to enjoy some coffee while sitting in the warmth outside. Up here north of the equator, we're shoveling snow! Hahaha! Looking forward to seeing your #1 (or 2,3,or 4) choice from the older magazine stack! What a great idea! We've all got that "inspiration" pile.
Your coffee meet up sounded lovely....so special when we can do it these days. You got lots sorted on Friday night by the sounds of it x
Picking a project from an old book sounds like a great idea!
Sounds like a great venue for a coffee shop meetup.
It sounds like you had a lovely, relaxing week. YOu have great plans as well. Have fun making the happen.
A project from a book sounds like a fun idea.
A Friday night spent organizing sounds great to me! Any time in the sewing room is a good time.
It sounds like you had a productive evening! I'll be interested to see what project you come up with for 'dust off an older book' hop. Oh and the Pink hop also. It sounds like you found the perfect spot to meet your friends for coffee.
