Friday Night with Friends

 It was a quiet Friday night for me as I'm sick with a shocking cold. I did spend a little while in my sewing room working on a new christmas project. I have cut into my Miss Kate fabrics and added a few other Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

 This block is called the Economy block and its so easy to make. I'm using mainly reds and greens and added a touch of aqua just to liven it up a little, I have  4 blocks to go and I hope to get them made tomorrow.
 I am going to make a christmas table topper. I think it will look perfect on my table with a few christmas things  on top.  Have you started christmas sewing yet?
 I had a little wander around my garden today and the flowers are still blooming beautifully.

The apple blossom is so pretty. I went scrap book shopping yesterday and bought some really pretty papers to make a garden journal. I can't wait to work on it and add all my garden photos. I have a few, but I guess you already knew that.

Thankyou Cheryll for hosting our Friday night sewing, if you would like to see what everyone else got up to click here and go to the list of names.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and don't forget to put  your clocks foreward tonight for day light savings.
