Friday Night Sew In


 Last night was Friday Night Sew in, sponsored by the lovely Wendy at Sugarlane Designs.  I had a plan for the evening.  I wanted to get my second row for the Grandmothers Flower Garden finished so I could spend Friday evening sewing it on to my first row.  And I made it!  Here is row number two completed.  I confess that I only got this finished on Friday afternoon.  :)


 
But here it is joined on to the first row and looking great!  Unfortunately the photo flipped itself and I don't know how to get it back to a horizontal view, but you still get the idea.

 
I had two sewing cohorts this week.  Linda is making progress on her Shashiko whale.  Mama is done and the calf is started.
 
 
And our friend Pat decided she would work on a piece of Shashiko too.  Hers is a Kukui branch.   It was really difficult to get a photo that shows how rich the green background is - this one was the best but still doesn't really convey how rich and green it is.  She is using a lime green thread on it.
 
 
I hope everyone else had a successful Friday Night Sew In.  Please go to the link to see what everyone else got up to.

  4. Hi Janet, I've popped over here to have a look at your work and your blog after you left a comment on my post from FNSI ........ I've really enjoyed looking at the posts with the birds, whales and turtle and so much more! I also see you are in a swap with hexies ....... I wonder if that is still going? Are those the hexies you are using for your grandmothers flower garden quilt? I love how it's coming along, nice lot of progress! I also love the name of your blog and it makes me wonder with all your posts and your blog name just where you live?? Hawaii, Alaska or Canada??? Lol. I hope you have a fantastic week whatever adventures you are getting up to. Hugs
