August FNSI sign ups are here!

YAY.  Its time for some FRIDAY NIGHT SEW IN.   Its this friday 8/17/12 !!!


Handmade by Heidi

Just a quick reminder of how this works. 

1.  sign up below with your name, state/country and link back to your blog.
2.  blog about your project on friday or saturday.  its the only way to be eligible for the prize.
3.  My co host Heidi and I will each be doing a giveaway and will choose a lucky winner via random.org.
4. the winners will be chosen at some point on sunday.  weve had a few months that we were a bit late.....but this month we will be on top of things.  (fingers crossed). 
5.  lastly, dont forget to check out other peoples projects.  i always get inspiration from all of you.  :)

ok, remember this is a night for you to relax and put aside some sewing/crafting time.  got a project in mind?  im seriously pondering starting a new quilt.  im tossing around ideas.  sadly i do have a few to finish  (DONT WE ALL).  maybe ill pull one of those UFOs out and see what catches my eye.

see you friday!!!  (ps....christmas is coming fast.  might be a good time to start christmas projects---note to self).

I don't think I've sewn a stitch since the last FNSI! I'm going to make this one extra productive.

Am looking forward to a night of craft! Our winter sports season has now finished so am itching to use the spare time to get busy on my WIPs/UFOs! Cheers, from the deep south of New Zealand!

It will be good to settle in for a stitch. Nice to think others are doing the same. I am in New Zealand, sorry I forgot to add in the sign up. Sue2sew. NZ

I'm in! Have no idea what I'm going to work on but I'm sure I will find something.

I hope that I will be able to get something done. I have a couple of projects that are lined up to work on. . . just need to be able to find the time.

Farm Friendly said...

I am going to make me some scrubs or a dress for my lil girl!

Debi Weaver said...

#30 and #31 is ME.
I goofed! Hit it wrong - making it come up twice. SO SORRY.
I hope to complete a quilted bag I'm attempting. I started with a charm pack, have the quilting done, and now, just need to assemble the 3-section bag! I'm so excited to accessorize my yellow/black suit with this bag!

I've been *patiently* waiting for this! I've been getting some sewing time this past week, but really need the motivation that signing up for FNSI gives... As to what I'll be working on - who knows? I have to make a new backpack-type bag, but just picked up some fabrics that are more suited for a purse (and I could use one of those too!); on the other hand, my Quilt of Valor top needs to be finished by then, and that's a little higher priority... You'll just have to check back on Sat.!

Evelyn said...

I've been away for the summer, and could not take my sewing machine, so this will be a great opportunity to dive back into sewing!

Teresa said...

Yay! A perfect excuse to spend the day and night quilting :)

Wendy B said...

so many things I can attack on Friday night.......must make a list and prioritise before then.....yippee...some more off the list!!!!

Jody Herbert said...

I'll be there!

Lyn said...

Now to sort out what I am going to work on...

Patty D from NC said...

Got the wine chilling. I hope to piece a quilt back and make a few blocks.

Karen ~ Briarside Lane said...

Thanks for the fun! Now to pick a project!

Smultronbo said...

Wohoo I remembered this time! Now the next step is to remember on the actual day. Fingers crossed. I have a few UFO's and something I'm working on atm to do on friday. It will hopefully be a really nice evening at the machine. Thanks for hosting this, its an awesome event each month.

Vicki said...

No idea what I'll be sewing but this is the perfect warm up for the Festival of Quilts in Birmigham on the Saturday

Michele said...

Looking forward to it!

Maxine said...

Can't wait for Friday night!

Foolish Feathers said...

Oh I really need this Friday Night Sew-in. thanks for including me!

Carol said...

Hi Bobbi. I'm not always able to sew on Friday nights, Saturdays are my best day for sewing. But, this Friday my husband is going to a car show so I will be able to join Friday Night Sew In. I'm thinking I will be sewing my August Schnibbles Dimestore quilt.

hueisei said...

I'm less productive this month. I'm going to contribute something this Friday.

Simone said...

Looking forward to joining everyone on Friday night. mmmm what to do

Tomorrow, I really need to make sure I don't get sidetracked...cause I'll forget FNSI and will miss it AGAIN!!

About time I joined - and about time I finished THAT granny square rug!
