There were 54 of us stitching on Friday night. so Mr RNG, after taking me out of the equation (after all, my prize is stitching with all of you on Friday nights!!!), drew this number out……

So looking forward to FNWF on the first Friday of the month (which is also the 1st of November) with Cheryll and then FNSI on the third Friday, which will be the 15th November, here with me again…..wow….isn’t this year flying past….it’ll be Christmas before we know it!

Friday night I started by doing some of this….
….and by Saturday I had this finished…….
well…..the flimsy of my Aiming for Accuracy Quilt along anyway….but I’m so thrilled…
….I even love it from the back!!!
I finished off the last few stitches on my Sew It’s Finished block for October……
You can read more about it HERE and even purchase your own copy….I’d recommend it….it’s just too cute for words!!!
And today has been catch-up day…….
working on some borders for my Long Time Ago in Bethlehem quilt…..it felt lonely being left behind so has been calling me to finish it!!!!! I think it’s about time, don’t you!?
So my FNSI lasted ALL weekend!!! I’m off to see what everyone else got up to at FNSI….care to join me???

I’ve been quiet this past week……a few health problems I’ve been sorting out…nothing to worry about but they’ve taken up a bit too much of my crafting and blogging time!!!!! But all’s sorted…….and this week seems to have flown by sooooo….( I’m just reminding you if time’s passed for you like it has for me,) if you haven’t signed up for Friday Night Sew In for tonight, sign ups are HERE.
The prize for a random lucky winner participating in FNSI this month is this gorgeous pack of loveliness……
….two beautiful Shabby Roses designs by the very talented Jenny of Elefantz along with a stripy pink FQ that you might decide to use to make one of them or you might use in another project…..myself, I like stripy fabric for bindings….just love it!
I’ve already started my FNSI fun…. I’m ‘bordering’ today….I’m working on finishing my Aiming for Accuracy borders today then starting on my Long Time Ago in Bethlehem borders…….it’s been too long!!!
Looking forward to stitching with you all tonight! Don’t forget to sign up though….
