A Green Friday

Yesteday was Friday Night Sew In.

Handmade by Heidi
I sepnt most of mine at an Italian restaurant in Newcastle celebrating my friend Michelle's 30th Birthday.

But before I went I did a little sewing. I'd prepared in advance by cutting all the fabric and drawing out the foundation piecing patterns for 10 Farmer's Wife blocks. I managed to piece four before I headed out. No illusions - they were all quite straightforward ones!

Calico Puzzle: rotary cut

Friendship: freezer paper foundation pieced. I could not get the points to match properly on this one....

Contrary Wife: rotary cut

Churn dash: rotary cut - this is still one of my favourite block designs.

How was your Friday night?

Well done for getting four blocks done, you must be a fast worker!

I guess the Italian food was delicious, they know how to cook! You even managed to sew, good for you!
