Friday Night Sew In signups are here!!!

Friday Night Sew In time again !!!   Its this coming friday, January 20th. 

Here is a breakdown of the "rules".   (i hate that word rules because no one will get in trouble for not participating).  someone give me another word.....or phrase.  LOL

anyhoo.......here it is in the quick and short version.
1.  get your world in order on Friday and sew, craft, stamp, scrapbook, build, embroider, crochet, knit, or paint until your eyes wont stay awake anymore.  make sure you have some comfy jammies on and a beverage of choice and a yummy snack.  this night is for YOU.  if you have kids, maybe include them in the fun.  if your kids are older (like mine) order them pizza or give them movie money.  LOL!

2.  Take photos of what you did and blog about it on Saturday.  This will enter you into the drawing for a FNSI prize :)

3.  Sunday come back and see if you won.  Ill be posting the winner at some point on Sunday. 

thats about it.  OH YEAH....HAVE FUN and tell all of your friends about our virtual party!

I am #90 on the sign ups with 3 more days until the sew in. I am really looking forward to this one since all of the holiday obligations are behind me and I can sew what ever I want! I have a bottle of wine ready to enjoy, a new tv in my sewing room and pretty brand new landscaping outside my sewing room window. Friday, hurry up and get here!

Sue Bone said...

What to work on, I have so much choice. :)

Teresa said...

I love FNSI time. It gives me the permission to dedicate the entire evening to sewing. Pizza for supper, son gets unlimited computer time, dog gets walked early, music on, coffee pot on. And create!

Genevieve said...

Just found your Friday Night Sew-in. Im Sew-In...LOL. See you Friday Night.

Katherine said...

I am looking forward to my first ever FNSI. I have seen them on the lovely blogs of people who are doing the Vignette hexagon quilt last year. I have a few projects on the go so will pick one and make sure I have everything I need for it organised ready to go.

Sandy said...

Help, I need to get my niece's quilt finished, at least the top sewn together!

Boy, do I need some extended sewing time! I'll be planting myself on the couch and working on a counted crossstitch project that I've been trying to finish for ages.

Don't know what I'll be doing exactly. I am currently working on a spider web, a swoon and a wool applique. maybe i'll touch base on all three.

kayleighinstitches said...

I haven't participated in months. But I'm getting that tingle and I miss the mess so I think I'll jump in this month.

Quilter Mom of 2 said...

Instead of rules, use "Guidelines".

I will be fixing some of my bro-in-law's pants and hopefully getting some piecing done...

Raelene said...

Cant wait for tonight, sew excited.

Kristen said...

I'm joining at the last minute again, but I will be sewing away tomorrow night! :)

Kylie Lloyd said...

Count me in. DH is working and I can sew until I drop for sure.

Have just the right thing I want to do this evening. Hope to have a finished sample.

boysmum2 said...

Guidelines was the word that immediately sprung to mind and it seem to be the popular chioce as I notice many ahve suggested it before me, although you could also go with notes or information. have just got back into stitching and plan to do some tonight so think for the first time I might linkmon up. happy stitching

Jenniffier Kramer said...

Yippy. I have way to much to do not to make use of this time!

Katherine said...

Thanks for organising this. I had a great time and hubby made sure everything was organised around it for me too which was wonderful. Girls are easy to manage but a 4 month old pup is a different matter LOL.

Kathy said...

I've never participating in the Fri night sew in! I think it will be fun. Can't wait to see whatever does!

Cathy Tomm said...

Barb in Mi said...

My very first FNSI - thanks for hosting! Thanks to the motivation my binding is finally done!

Rossetta said...

What fun. Can't decide whether to commit or not yet. How about saying "guidelines" instead of rules. Not that I am bothered by the word rules but you had asked for another word! Thank you for organizing this fun for Fridays.

Vee said...

I love sewing on Fridays. Just added a link to FNSI today so I'm too late for January. I'm looking forward to the rest of the months though.
