Friday Night sewing results

 I achieved quite alot last night for Friday Night Sew In, its a great motivator to know you are sewing with so many friends.
 I got the binding made and machine sewn onto my new quilt, this quilt is massive and took almost an hour to  sew it all on, I have started sewing it down by hand on the other side so I'll do a bit more of that tonight. Hopefully a few nights of stitching  and it will be done.
 My father in law is 70 soon so I have made him a mini tractor quilt, he collects old tractors so when I saw this pattern by Lori Holt i knew it would suit perfectly.
 It took quite some time to actually sew it altogether, lots of little pieces. But now its done.
 Last night I started doing a bit of quilting on it, finished it up today so now all that left is the binding and a label.
 Holy Moley it was cold this morning, -3 when I  braved the elements and took these frosty photos.

 Even the bird bath was frozen.
  Thankyou to Wendy for hosting FNSI, if you would like to see what others got up in their sewing rooms click here to see the list.

Have a wonderful weekend.

A frozen bath for the birdies.. I wonder where they go when it gets that cold. Handy to have a quilt on the go when it's so cold outside. Nice colours in your big quilt and the tractor quilt is such a clever idea.

Hello Leanne,
Just dropping by to see what you have been up to and you have been busy in your sewing room, fun. : )
At the moment I have been having problems with my e-mail account. This is the second time this has happen and it is very fustrating. Anyway, I have not sewing lately. Have been busy in the garden and thinking of doing some changes out there too. A lot of inside projects and so a lot of my stuff is in boxes. : ( I really hope that I will be able to unpack in a few months.
The weather here it hot and humid. We did reach last week in the 100's but now back to the mid 90's. I see you had some very cold weather. Hope you get some nicer weather soon.
Thanks for sharing your projects. They are always very insprational. Have a wonderful day!
Blessings!
