Friday Night Sew In Results

My Friday Night Sew In started at 8.30 yesterday morning.

After I drove my youngest to school, I Skype'd with Joan (Joan at Leschenault) in Australia - so her (late) Friday night.
I got the freezer paper all traced and cut out for this month's Hop To It appliqué block, and Joan worked on her Granny's Hankie BOM block.

In the afternoon I started quilting the Dresden Plate quilt.

After free motion quilting around the centres, I quilted a feather style flower in a peach Aurifil 50 WT thread on the DP's.

All 25 DP's are now quilted, and I have started working on the background.

I also finished the socks I have been knitting.

They have such a pretty top. The pattern is "Traveler's Stocking" from the "Knitting on the Road" book by Nancy Bush. I made them with a kidmohair blend yarn from L'Angelaine - lovely and soft.

I started knitting a hat last night. The pattern is from Ravelry - a wonderful site. The pattern is Button-Tab Knit Hat and it is one of the free patterns.

Great Friday Night Sew In - thanks Heidi!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
