It's Saturday and that means showing what I achieved in the Friday Night Sew In.
I'm working on some New York Beauty blocks.  I'm using scraps for the centre and points and then I am going to use a solid for the background arc but I haven't decided on a colour yet.  I'll wait and see when I have them all made what colour would go best.
Here are the blocks I managed to get done last night.

I also received the following fabric postcards for a swap called "Tag It' based on clothing tags.
This one is from Miriam

and this one is from Monika

I was also nominated for The Liebster Award so I have to do a post on that tomorrow provided I have the energy after tonight.  One of the girls from my class in secondary school is home from Edinburgh for the weekend and the class are meeting up for a night out (plenty of chat, some food and drink but I won't be drinking).
Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

where does the time go

I can't believe it's two months since I wrote anything on my blog.  Time has just zipped past me at supersonic speed.

It's Friday night sew in again.  If you want to join in go on over to Bobbi's.  Why not sign up and do some  sewing tonight.

  I'm going to work on my New York Beauty blocks.

I was lucky to win some giveaways
I've received and sent some blocks for a swap I'm in
I've made a few doll quilts
I've signed up for a few secret swaps
Hubby and I spent time decorating youngest daughters room (painting, laying a new wooden floor, putting together a new bed and all the new accessories for it)

Life has gotten in the way (Mum's taxi, work, family health issues).
I promise I will update with new photos of goodies tomorrow.

In the meantime, enjoy FNSI if you're joining in and have a great weekend.
