Friday night sewing

 I had a great sewing night last night  for my first Friday Night sew in, I got all my blocks for my scrappy trip around the world together and I'm thrilled to say the least. This quilt is full of  my favourite colours and fabrics and I can see it easily becoming well used this winter.
 This quilt took me 11 days to make, I was pretty happy with that. it was one of those projects  you just can't stop working on and the blocks were so much fun. I love it.
 This cute zinnia was in my garden yesterday when I was bringing in the washing, it looked so pretty against all the greenery so I just had to take a photo.

Here they are all in a row, these are my favourite flower and I plant them every summer.







After I finished putting my blocks together it was still early so I sat down with my new Anni Downs stitchery and got all the words finished.
I was so pleased with my efforts for the evening, lets see what I can achieve in my sewing room today.

Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends.

Oh I love your Scrappy Trips! I only have 4 blocks done. I'm going to try to make myself finish some tops this weekend but it's hard. I am so unsure about the borders so I put it off. The Farmer's Wife is on the dining table so it will get finished because I want the table back! How are you going to quilt your Scrappy Trips? Will you do it yourself or do you have a quilter? Well, have a good weekend. I'm jealous of your beautiful flowers. It's still the dead of winter here.

Cheery wave!

Your quilt is beautiful. The zinnias are also beautiful, it's snowy and cold here in Minnesota. I'm dreaming about spring and getting back into the garden!
