My quiet November FNSI and a winner.

This was the second last Friday Night Sew In for the year.....can you believe it?

And mine was pretty darn quiet.....all because the Queensland state election was being held on Saturday and I had to work in one of the voting booths for the day.  Starting at 6am, another lady and I drove the 3/4 hour to get to our polling booth, in a little sleepy seaside town called Cungulla.  We then set up and run the booth from 8am - 6pm, before closing the doors ready for counting.  We were finished by 7.30pm as our booth was a smaller one and we only took about 250 members of the public however it was constant all day long and with the humidity the way it has been, it was quite steamy too.  Knowing this, I thought I'd better get a reasonably early night the night before!

I did manage to get some sewing done though, even if it was of the 'conventional' variety.....
 Mr B started a new job today and on Friday night,  I finally got to hemming the two new pairs of work jeans he'd asked me to shorten and hem 'month's ago!  Why I'd never thought before now to use my walking foot for hemming jeans I'll never know.....made it soooo much easier.  How do you hem jeans? (or don't you?)  If you struggle like I have in the past, I encourage you to 'think outside the box' and  multi-task your walking foot....honestly, you'll wonder why you hadn't thought of it sooner.

Now, before I announce our November winner, here is our prize - An owl pincushion kit by 'Quiltologie'.  Wouldn't you love to win it?  Let's see who Mr RNG draws out, shall we?

Firstly I'd like to say a BIG thank you to all 19 lovely ladies who joined with me for our FNSI this month....I'm sure you'd love to pop over and see what gorgeous things they made on Friday night?  You can do that by clicking on each of the links back HERE and remember to leave them a comment - it really touches our hearts.

Finally after jiggling the names in Mr RNG's random number generator, the computer pulled out this person as the winner for November: 

congratulations to JEANETTE
I really hope you like your prize.
I will post it in the next couple of days.

Off to bed for me. Tomorrow's another big day!
What are your plans for the week?
