Friday night with Friends

Cheryll, www.stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au, is hosting the Friday night  with Friends. I was browsing her blog when I noticed that there was a sign up to join the FnwF. I decided to join the group and last night was the first sewing night.

I felt lousy with a horrible cold, but it was not going to stop me. It was a "Christmas" theme  sewing night.  I had been home for 3 weeks recently, and one of the things I did was to tidy my craft shelves. I found the book where I had doodled some patterns a few years ago and forgot  all about them. I had drawn this pattern to use my wooden stocking buttons. So I decided to start this embroidery for the FnwF.


I enlarged the design slightly and then traced it onto linen with a brown marking pen.

 

 
I chose a red Cottage Garden Thread to make a red work embroidery.
 
 
 
This is as far as I got with sewing last night.
 
 
I sat there sewing and kept thinking that there were quite a few fellow bloggers out there doing the same thing. I must say that it was a nice feeling. I believe that there were 45 people involved with the FnwF. The next sewing night is Friday, 5th December.
 
Thank you, Cheryll, for hosting this.
 
 
Have a lovely weekend.
Yvonne
