...and even though we may be miles apart, states apart, countries apart, continents apart.....we have that connection, even though we seem to be 'worlds' apart.....I think that's why I love our sew-ins so much. It doesn't matter who we are, what we look like, what we do, how we entertain ourselves whilst we enjoy our craft, there's no arguments or fisty-cuffs......we always feel the positive connections.....and, if I dare take a line from Mr Buble....... "I feel so good!"
A friend of mine had started the Girl's Day Out BOM but didn't feel like finishing it, so I offered to finish it for her. I've always wanted to do it, but missed it when it came out and well, you know how it goes...?
She had a few blocks started with some shapes fused on and some smaller stitchery blocks were finished along with a couple of the larger blocks.
Friday night I dug out the Antique shop block, which was half finished, and finished the stitcheries of the shelves inside the shop, as the rest was done. Then I began on the Cafe block, applique-ing the fused pieces and beginning the stitchery. I didn't get a huge amount done as I was exhausted and I think my body was feeling the foreboding wet weather we were due to have as every bone in my body ached (maybe it was the fact I'd worked all week and had to front up again on Saturday!?.....I'm just not used to it, that's for sure).
After work on Saturday and Federal Election training (I've been asked to work at the upcoming election), I got back into it with a glass of wine by my side....as the rain began to fall. Sunday was the perfect weather for stitchery with a steady downpour all day, so I did get a bit more done....not a lot because there was also a need to catch up on some sleep and rest my aching bones. But I'm happy with it's progress, all the same. I sure hope my friend likes how it's coming along. I can see this progressing further this week.
Have you had a chance to visit everyone to see what they got up to on Friday night? I haven't as yet, but I do plan to this week. Pop back to the sign up page and click on each link to see.....and don't forget to leave a comment, it's a real motivator each month!
I bet you're wondering who our lucky winner of our Tropical Dreamcatcher Batiks Charm pack is?
I consulted with Mr RNG (as he's always so reliable), and he drew this number out of the hat....
Anthea didn't feel very productive but she was..... in more ways than one. Check out her post to see why.
