Friday Night Sew In

Last night I joined stitcher's from Australia and overseas for a Friday Night Sew In.  Thank you to Heidi and Bobbi from the USA for organising it. This is the first time I have participated and I must say I had a great time out in my quilting room working on installment 4 of my Mystery Quilt which needs to be completed by September , decorating a new hand towel for the kitchen and making a start on my Grab Bag, a kit I purchased from Sweetwater.  I finished my hand towel, got a good bit done towards my quilt and almost finished my grab bag, just need to add the handle and top facing and it will be finished.  

Pocket on Bag, handle strips ready to plait.  Fabric - Reunion by Sweetwater. 

Still have a few installments to complete before I will know how all the above pieces fit together. Will be very exciting to see it finished.
If you want to join in the next FNSI, go to the button on my side bar and check out Heidi's and Bobbi's blogs.  FNSI is usually held on the 3rd Friday of the month with sign up just before that. Even though you are working on your own, it is nice to know that other quilters are working at the same time and you can check out their blogs the next day to see what they got up to.  Till next time Happy Stitching.....
