FNSI and another finished quilt top and....




So, yesterday was Friday Night Sew In. I spent the evening working on my Countdown to Christmas quilt - it's a Jelly Roll sampler quilt and I had finished all the blocks and did most of the piecing last weekend. Last night I finished it off by adding the borders and made a start on piecing the back. This morning I worked solidly on the back and finally finished that too. I like it so much it's almost sad to call it the back!

Here's the front
And here's the back (I've had to find a new "glamourous Assistant" as Michael is away for the weekend - thanks Nicola).And now for the most exciting part of my day: I have just been and picked up my brand new Husqvarna Viking sewing machine:

New machine
Sad machine Now I'm off to unpack it and play with it.
