Friday Night Sew-In

Last night was the Friday Night Sew-In for January. I actually got to get some sewing done last night! Last month I signed up but something came up & I didn't get anything done. It has been so cold outside these last couple of days that I was determined to stay inside where it was nice & warm.
I joined in on a couple of BOMs (block of the month) again this year and was already falling behind. Last night I got the fabrics out for the Layer Cake Quilt Along and started making some of the blocks. Before I knew it, I had four of the blocks finished! Now I'm only two blocks behind. I had to order some more fabric before I could make anymore. I'm making my quilt with some Halloween fabrics and I didn't have as many as I thought I did and they are hard to find in the stores this time of year LOL.
This is block # 1
I could not get my points to come out right. Good enough for me this time.
Block #2
This is my favorite so far.
Block #3
I'm going to embroider a spider & web in the corner of the handle on this basket.
Block #6

I also got the first block finished on the Birdie Stitches Quilt Along.
I'm doing all my embroideries in shades of red. Then I'm going to be using some beadwork & buttons.

You can find these Quilt Alongs on my sidebar if you would like to follow along too.


I was the big winner at the 'Be Mine Blog Tour'! WAHOO!!!!!!!!
I won a $100 gift certificate to use at The Fat Quarter Shop. Can you believe that? It took awhile for me to actually believe it. So today I went SHOPPING at their online shop. Goodness that was a chore (too many pretty fabrics to choose from) but sooooooo much fun! I'm getting a jelly roll for the postage stamp quilt, some Halloween fabrics for my Layer Cake Quilt, a layer cake of Dilly Dally for Kelly's birthday quilt and some fabrics that I really liked. Now I shouldn't have any excuse to not get things done.

Now I'm going to go check out what some of the others have been doing for the Friday Night Sew Along.

Have a great evening!
