Girls Day Out progress

I've been working on Libby Richardson's "Girls' Day Out" for a friend....I'd always wanted to do it, but never ever got around to it with all my grand plans and new starts.
So a friend of mine said she had started it but lost interest.....so what's a girl to do?  Of course, 
I offered my services!!!!
Here's the progress so far.....
Maree (my friend) had stitched most of this block already and I just had to finish the smaller things in the shelves, so thought I'd tackle this one first.
Then I went on to the Cafe and Florist blocks.....finished those two, and a few smaller blocks, and I'm very happy with the results....
Now I'm working on this one.....
....the teddy shop block.   Once that's done, I've got a few more smaller ones to do before I can start putting it all together.  
It's exciting, don't you think......watching something grow, from an idea, to a plan, to a finish?  

I'm usually not too good at the finish part *insert groan*   You see, I'm a Gemini, so I'm constantly on the lookout for new and exciting things, which includes new and exciting projects.....a dilemma I'm trying to get a grip on (you'd think I'd be better at it after 51 years!).

So this is my plan for Friday Night Sew In.....to get a bit more progress on the Girls' Day Out so I can see a completion before the year's out.  

What do you have planned for FNSI?  Have you signed up yet?  Link up your blog or FB page here to join in the fun and you'll receive a free new stitchery design from me.
I know I said the design would be a surprise and I wouldn't show it beforehand but I'm so excited to show you I thought I'd sneak a picture on my blog tomorrow...just so you know! (I'm a horror like that!)
have a wonderful hump day

Now I know why I'm always looking for another project......I'm also a Gemini! Girls Day Out is looking good.

I'm not a Gemini - I am Sagittarius - with a pinch of Virgo for my organisational skills and obviously a touch of Gemini as well - no wonder I am confused!!!
See you Friday night...

I'm a Pisces so I also have my eyes in two directions at once! What a great idea to start a project and let a friend finish! Hahaha! Good for you!

Looking forward to Friday night already!!!
