Friday night sewing results

 Friday night sewing was a successful one for me, I always look foreward to spending time in my sewing room. I worked on another block of Tone it down which is a quilt all over instagram right now and its featured in the latest issue of American Patchwork and quilting.
 I have made 9 blocks so far, here are a few of them, they are really fun to make but take me about 90 minutes to make each one. So many little pieces of fabric.

 Of course I always wind down with a little stitching before bed. I love working on this project, its a Bronwyn Hayes pattern and my friend Cathy got this bag for Christmas and its so beautiful I dragged mine out of the cupboard to finish, with a little help from a lovely friend.  Isn't it funny how you lose interest in a project but when you see it made up you are all inspired to work on it again and make one of your very own.
I'm going to see what everyone got up to last night, if you would like to look to go here and you find many wonderful blogs full of inspiration.
Its finally warmed up here so I'm looking foreward to some sunshine.
Enjoy your weekend.
