Friday Night Sew In

I did manage to do a bit of sewing this weekend, so I do have something to show for my Friday Night Sew In report.  Yay!  I am finding it difficult to get any sewing done these days.  But I keep trying.

For Friday Night Sew In this month I completed my December Canadians Quilt block for Lisa.  Better late than not at all....  Edited to add - the tutorial for this block came from blossom heart quilts blog

I also spent lots of time outside this weekend.  Our temperatures are hovering around 0 C.  So warm! It looks like spring in my little town.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and got some sewing done!  Please go to Wendy's blog to see what others accomplished for FNSI.

  8. What a lovely block! I don't know how you keep up with all of the swaps, but so enjoy seeing what you're doing! 0 degrees balmy?? And here I'm chilled at 10 degrees! It's all relative I guess.

  9. This block has a very calming effect...lovely.
    I was looking through for the Canadiens block but didn't see it? My son and d.i.l. are huge fans; I'd love to make one as a pillow for their sports and gaming cave. Will you share, please??
    Cheers from Oshawa, Ontario

  11. Hello Janet,

    The perfect block, just love the colours you have used. Is that a cotton plant that is blooming in your header photo?

    Happy days.

  12. That is one super block. I seriously love the colors, and the design plays those blues up so nicely. I also love the story of your birthday cake in the next post. Daughters are fantastic, aren't they?
