Stitching with friends and FNSI sign ups

Thanks so much for all your positive comments about my hoarding......I just felt that sometimes, even though it's not intentional, we don't see the 'real' person behind the blog and find out that they're just like us when you look behind the pretty things they make and share and all the pressures that brings along with it.....we all have a human side  despite what our blogs might appear to show....and yes, I'm as real as they come........just ask my Monday sewing buddies???   (Now be nice girls!!!!)

 

Michelle 

and Heather
 
 
It was sooo good to get back to our every-second-Monday routine together yesterday.....I've seriously missed our madness and banter.....so many endorphins fly around that day, I'm sure we're all giddy by the time we leave!
After a serious fuel issue (I really MUST remember to fuel up the car BEFORE I leave on a long road trip!!!), I got to Heather's place at about 12...well after the 10am starting time, but let's just say I wasn't missing out on my 'fix' despite doing 1 1/2 trips to get there!!!! DUH!!!!!
 
And what greeted me when I got there.....not only hugs from three very special ladies but hugs from a sparkly eyed little mouse that Heather had made for me....
Mine's the gorgeous li'l girl on the right.......Harriet....she whispered her name to me as I arrived!!!!!
Jen's is the middle one....Hermione, and Michelle is pretty is pink, but I missed her name.....I'm sure it's just perfect!!!  Isn't Heather a real sweety!!!  See what I mean about wonderful ladies!!!  Only wish you could join us too!!!!
But instead, we'll have to get together virtually, and guess what??  This Friday night is FNSI....the first for 2014!!!! Yippeee!!!! We can get together and sew to our hearts content......join along with us, sign ups are below so make sure you add your name to the list so we can visit you...... I'll look for some yummy treats we could make to keep our energy levels up on the night and post about them later on in the week and you can prepare what you're going to sew on our Friday night together!!!!
How's that sound??? 
Ok.....here's to Friday.....at least if we can't get together in each other's houses in reality, isn't it lovely that technology allows us to get together virtually....and we can have just as much fun????
Looking forward to our stitchy bliss together all Friday night long!!!!!

Looking forward to tonight

wish2stitch said...

Ready to join in with one eye on my sewing and my other eye on the tennis.

Mistea said...

So I'm late to the party, but I have a really good excuse. Kinda like yours - my car got some attention today so I took a little project to work on while the men worked their magic and I've continued with that one all day.
It's little so if I don't have a thread shortage issue I may just be able to finish tonight.
Yay for gathering with friends for stitches.

Jill @ I Rather Quilt said...

Adorable mice! Will there be a pattern forthcoming?

Teresa Rawson said...

I'm in, too! Nothing like the last minute...I hope to finish up some hand quilting. It will be nice to know that "I;m not alone...."

Teresa said...

I'm sick of missing out of the FNSI as I work Friday nights.....sooooo... I'm going to stitch along through the day and after I finish work....late Friday night..... if that's okay???? I need the push!!! Thanks Wendy xx

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Oh how I want to join in, but I'm just not sure I'll be able to tonight ... but should be able to most other months. Is there a sign up every month? Or should I sign up now and then join in when I can? ;-)

Kathy S. said...

It's 11 degrees tonight here in Ohio. The wind chill is like negative 10 degrees. I know it's colder a little further west, might as well sew.

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness those are the cutest little mice. Have fun with your sew in.
