Friday Night Sew In - September

On friday night I took part in the FNSI organised by Wendy, pop over to her to see what all the other 55 were doing!
I actually did some sewing. First I finished my blocks for a swap I'm in. Obviously I can't show you anything from that!
I saw this Broken Herringbone block over at Sooli's and had to try it out, the tutorial can be found here.
I'm not sure about the blue sashing, I think it looks fine with the orange/yellow but perhaps not blue or green. But I really like this one!
But should really be working on something else. I did however finish the top for a table runner, do you remember this one. Now it's ready to be sandwiched.
However the first thing to start with is to quilt my daughter's "The cat in the hat" quilt. She has been asking when it'll be finished for quite a long time now!

The Kokako!

Well, here he is in all his glory!
The Kokako is a pattern I've been testing out for Juliet @ Tartankiwi.
He certainly looks like a he, I don't know if the male and female looks the same. Thanks Juliet for letting me
try it out!
Today I'm linking up with the Paper Piecing Party @ Quiet Play.

Friday Night With Friends - September

Friday night I was sewing along with friends all over the world thanks to Cheryll who organize it all for us. Even if she is in China at the moment!
I was sewing a paper pieced Kokako, a bird from New Zealand, and when I was sewing the different parts together today and almost had finished it, BANG, I have to do some unsewing before I can finish it.
Perhaps I'll do that tonight because now I'm heading out for the sun. So I won't even show you anything of it.
We still have summer right now but the forecast says it's going to rain on tuesday. You know I don't like that.

Lucky me!

I took part in a Winter Mini Swap hosted by Cheryll and was partnered with Lyn @ Stitches From The Mainland. She sent me this lovely mini, but I wont hang it just yet because I want the sun to shine a bit longer!
The photo doesn't show the embroidered snowflakes with beads shining in it. I love it!
Thankyou so much Lyn!
This is the one I sent to Lyn and I'm so glad that she liked it.
I've also been lucky when Carol @ Just Let Me Quilt had a giveaway on the Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop and I won this panel by Nancy Halvorsen called Ho Ho Ho Let it snow. It's so cute!
 I can't find the photo I took of the panel so I've borrowed one from Carol.
