Friday Night Sew in

Friday Night Sew In

Hello to you all! I have joined in with the gals from all over blog land to enjoy a Friday Night Sew in. I decided to do some catch up with some stitching and managed to complete this cute cushion done in purple tones.
     
I found this stitchery pattern ages ago and hadn’t got around to starting it.....now I have and I’m very happy with the result.
I also had enough time to finish painting the shoes on my cloth doll. I really enjoyed stitching this girl and her shoes are rather fun!! Love her hair too. Looks like mine in the morning.
She’s so cute
This is the great magazine I got the pattern out of.
Beaut magazine!!

A little bit of fun was had here. What do you make out of old beer cans?  A hat, that’s what! I am entering it into the show as a novelty entry. The most difficult part was crocheting through the drilled holes in the cans, after that it was all smooth sailing.


I’m off to buzz around and see what everyone else got up to for Friday Night Sew in. Why not come with me? Just click here to join me. You will have to scroll down a bit to see the list of gals who have joined in. Do visit, you will get some great ideas and inspiration of your own to try some different crafts.

                    Cheers, Anita.
