I had a great night sewing with friends here in town and online.  It was a nice night out - a lot of talking, good food and of course a little sewing.

I worked on a Christmas project for my daughter.  Since she was little we've looked for an Advent Calendar or count down for Christmas and I finally found a nice one.

You are suppose to make a quilt and then add the blocks each day.  Here is the quilt without the border and a start on the blocks.  I changed the pattern a little and made the blocks out of wool so I could do hand stitching instead of machine.  My goal this year has been to use my stash for projects. For this project I used scrap pieces of wool and only purchased the background fabric.  For the quilt, all the colorful fabrics were from my stash but I will need to buy border fabric.  

I also just finished a fall mat.  This is a kit by Woolkeeper (click HERE).  I love Kathy's designs! They are so easy to follow, and her kits contain beautiful wools.

I'm heading over to Cheryll's to follow the links to see what the other wonderful stitchers did Friday Night.  Why don't you join me by clicking HERE.

I can't wait until tomorrow/ Friday to sew - it's been too long since I visited everyone!

I know I've missed many FNwF and various other online swaps and such but there were many hospital visits and doctor appointments since January.  My husband and his newly acquired pacemaker seem to being doing pretty well but still has a few restrictions until his next appointment.
My daughter has been feeling under the weather for quite a while and I just got over Bronchitis.  I think I was just worn out from worrying and taking care of my family that my allergies and a cold was just too much.

I look forward to seeing what everyone has been stitching.  Please join me at Cheryll's FNwF  (click HERE) and see all the wonderful projects.
