Friday Night Without Friends

I wasn't sure whether January 1st was going to be the night for Cheryll's Friday Night with Friends or not.  And I guess I was too lazy to look it up. I just sewed instead.  And it turns out that she had postponed it to the second Friday of the month, so as not to interfere with people's New Year's Day fun and excitement.  I guess I didn't have any fun scheduled, except for some sewing.  I am scrambling to catch up actually.  It's a new year and I haven't finished all my swap items from last year!

Well I got two things finished on Friday night, even without any friends....

My hexies for Mary for December in the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.  She asked for bright colours and solid centres.

Then I whipped up (it actually took a couple of hours) this paper pieced block for Jan in the Quilting Block Swap paper piece group.  Jan asked for blacks, oranges, greys on a white background for this block.  I think she must be making a Halloween quilt!

I still have two blocks to make for 2015, both for the Canadians Quilt bee.  Hopefully I get to them next Friday, when it really is Friday Night with Friends.  If you want to sew along with us please go to Cheryll's Gone Stitchin' blog on Wednesday to sign up.

I'll see you on Friday! 



  1. It's okay Janet you weren't sewing on your own, I was too.
    Nice hexies and a great block. Does look like Halloween?

  2. The block, those colours are a little scary, you might be so right.

  3. Your flowers are lovely and bright and that block definitely has a feel of Halloween about it. xx

  4. You did achieve quite a bit-- you can sew again this Friday-- with friends!

  5. What neat hexies and the solid centers add a nice touch to them! Happy sewing.
