Friday Night Sew In

Friday Night Sew In

 So last night I was to actually sit down at my sewing machine and do a little bit of sewing.  I don't know if you remember, but a while back my friend Karen at SewMuch2Luv and I went to the quilt show and we both bought a 6" Dresden pattern.  Well, I got to cutting and sewing with it last night.  Boy is it fun! These little Dresden plates are so dang cute!

Here the blades are all tucked in the their box.

Here is a blade on the cutting mat so you can see how small it is.

The first finished Dresden. (hey where did that wayward thread come from?)

And here at the 3 I was able to finish last night.

I bought a dresden template a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to give it a try. I'm forcing myself to complete a couple other WIPs first before playing with it! I love your finished plates. Such pretty colors.

Very cool. I love checking out your projects...

I love all these. I wish I could do the Friday nite sew in but Dean and I usually do something, even if it is just to rent a movie and watch it together. Have a terrific weekend!
