Fun Friday!

I snuck in some sewing time for the FNSI yesterday afternoon when I got home from work:


All the snowmen got arms!

The pattern calls for brown 1/4" bias tape, but I made up my own using brown fabric and Heat n Bond (I love that stuff).

We went out with another couple for Chinese food, but got home early enough so that I could sneak in another hour of sewing before bed. Sewing helps to burn all the calories from beef and brocolli, lemon chicken, cashew chicken and fried rice. Right?



Not very much got done in that hour because I was also chatting on Skype with Cheryl (a.k.a. She Who Seldom Blogs). Then she ditched me for a movie and bed and I figured she had the right idea, so I took my iPad and my book and hopped in between the covers.

My snowmen and tree blocks are now all sewn into rows which just have to be attached with sashing strips. Then the borders will be added and the top will be done!

No progress on the Green and White quilt yet. Maybe Sunday after I finish my BIG pile of marking...
