Friday Night Sew In.

I really couldn't get my stuff together last night. I even had the obligatory Tim-Tams at the ready (and had a couple), but no good! I flitted from one thing to another and then gave up and went to bed.


I did a little quilting on my Star Wars quilt for Dylan. Easy just sewing in straight lines.


I wanted to make some small Christmas decorations from the latest Better Homes and Gardens magazine "All I want for Christmas" and I started out OK, tracing the templates then cutting them out, but things got worse from there and, with only a few done the mind wandered on to something else !




Looks like others were very productive, so on go over and check out what they did at Wendy's Blog, and thanks Wendy for hosting.

  5. These things happen to all of us....and you did get lots of preparation done as well as your quilting. It is important not to make your stitching a chore that you 'have' to do. You probably needed an easy night. Hugs xx

  12. I think we all have those times, and sometimes you are simply just not in the mood for some stitching. You did get some preparation done, and that's a great thing; it means that when you are in the mood, it's all ready to go. And at least you got to enjoy a couple of tim tams anyway! Don't be too hard on yourself....

  17. You got a little done for your FNSI, Heather, better than nothing... perhaps not enough TimTam intake to fire you up?!
