Friday Night Sew In Results!!


dinner

We had so much fun with Friday Night Sew In!  Stephanie is on the left and Megan on the right – they braved the rain on the drive over.  We had vegetarian chili and multi-grain bread for dinner. and red wine.  yum.

 

steph cutting

Once dinner was over, Megan got a tour of the house.  Then, we went to work setting up.  It was hard getting started at first because Megan wanted to hear the story of how John and I met and well, that took a while.  Funny.  It was the 2nd time today I told our love story.  it was nice reminiscing. 

 

pillow case

Megan was the first to complete her project – she made a pillow case for her little girl’s doll bed.  She was thrilled to learn a new technique! 

 

 

hobby lobby

Here is Megan ‘shopping’ in my stamp room!  When she was done sewing, she moved on to her next project but I didn’t get a picture of it.  She is decorating alphabet letters for her daughter’s room – so cute.  I told her to check out my goodies to add to her letters like flowers, buttons etc.  She was like a kid in a candy store!

megan dessert

For dessert we had chocolate sponge cake yum!  I covered it with strawberries and fresh whipped cream.  delicious, can you tell?  Can you see Stephanie in the background?  She is ironing. 

 

 

Megan brought a bag of these!  O.M.G. – they are dangerous!  I love them – ate too many.  Megan said we can have more for breakfast.  ha.    Stephanie also brought some strawberry cupcakes with homemade frosting her dmil made.  Yum!!  Lots of goodies!!

 

 

 

makeup bag

I tried making this cute thread catcher but had a hard time with it (think I sewed some on backward) so I abandoned that idea and moved onto making a black and white makeup bag for my sister Deana (at her request because I made her a tissue holder with this fabric for her birthday and she liked it!)  This is a good standby project, one I know I can complete in a decent amount of time.  At least I got to cross one thing off my To Do List!  Mission accomplished.  Lots of fun tonight with these gals!!  It’s almost 12:30 in the morning, nearly time to go to bed! 

I plan to sew the rest of the weekend so it may be a while before I post again so I can devote some time to knock a few more things off my to do list!

Thanks for stopping by – hope you have a great weekend!!
