February Friday Night Sew-in results

Here is what i made .....

A quilt block for my sewing buddy HEIDI that ive been putting off for awhile. (sorry bout that)

A CUTE basket from a sweetwater pattern. I think im going to give it to my sons girlfriend as a belated Vday gift. (i had a little trouble with the top...circles are tough on the machine and fingers.)



I actually did more last night than i thought. After working all day and a good dinner with the family, it was hard to get motivated. I just wanted to curl up with my new granny quilt and relax. but once i got going, there was no stopping me :)


(note to self, next month kick the boys out for a few hours)


Heidi and I are both doing a giveaway, and the winners will be picked tomorrow. check out her blog to see what she is giving. Also be sure and blog about your sewing night. here is what i am giving away this time.....its very exciting!!!



I did the pin cushion to match the basket i made.....and a "make life" charm pack by moda/sweetwater.


but wait, we arent done yet. Heidi, the genius she is, created the flickr group last month. check out pics and upload (optional) of what everyone else did.

im actually going back to the sewing table right now. happy saturday and good luck everyone!

I love the basket! I ended up getting some holiday things done. I really needed the FNS commitment to get them started.

this was such fun, and a great way to get stuff done, amazing thinking that 194 or so all stitching away over 12-24 hrs giving the time differences, thanks to you and Heidi!!

I'm liking that basket very much!

Thanks again for organising another sew-in. My evening wasn't quite as productive as yours, but very relaxing just the same. It is about the journey, not just the destination, right?

Regards, Sue
