FNWF

 MY Friday night was mainly taken up with preparation stuff. Next weekend Iam going with a couple of friends to a sewing weekend We are joining up with another local quilting group Should be fun.
Firstly I cut a silk scarf in half and made longer handles for a bag I got for my birthday I like longer handles
Hopefully this will work 
 Then I got some applique ready for a quilt I have planned
 Made a birthday card for a friends birthday this week
 Earlier in the afternoon I  pinned this quilt ready for quilting
So no finishes but I was happy with what I got done
How about you?

You achieved a lot Illene, its best to get an early start for retreats. I'm always rushing at the last minute, then I forget bits and pieces which is annoying. Hugs.....
