Friday Night Stitch in

  Heidi has been holding these great stitching nights most of the year, and I have participated in a few of them, seems we don't have too many Friday nights at home, well not the ones that the stitch-in is on anyway. This is the last Friday night stitch in for 2010, but I seriously hope that Heidi will run these again next year!

Last night, I was determined to get quite a bit done, and I did indeed, however, I can't show you too much as they are Christmas presents, and you just never know who might be blog  lurking...

This is on of several  heart blocks that I made and will be winging their way to Timaru - these block will be collected as part of a national project, and will be made into quilts to give to the familes of the 29 miners who perished at Pike River on the west Coast, lets hope that they bring some comfort to those familes.

this one I pieced together on Friday, and quilted last evening, talk about being on a roll....
and this quilt is one that has been sitting in the UFO pile for far too long, (like 7 years...), so I unpicked  the little amount of quilting that I had done - which was quite a bit, given that it is a very big quilt. Rowing Man lent a hand too, made the job thta much faster, and seemd much less tedious. So this goes on the quilting frame on Sunday - yeh that's tomorrow, and hopefully one more project done and dusted!
these roses are out of my garden, I only planted them a few weeks back, and already I am getting masses of flowers off them, they smell so heavenly, I have right beside my bed, such a delicious fragrance as I nod off...

Nothing like the smell of fresh roses. Love the colours of the quilt on the frame. Well done rowing man for lending a hand.

Great colors and I love the simple squares. Hubby Hands are very helpful.
