Friday Night Sew-In: Saturday Morning Report, May

I had a lovely evening yesterday, the house all to myself, Nutella on toast for tea, feet up on the sofa and a few hours of handsewing my Storm at Sea miniature before watching the final ever episode of Ashes to Ashes - not sure what I think of the ending yet, I shall miss the series though.  I hope everybody else joining the Friday Night Sew-In also had a relaxing and productive time in one way or another.

Here's how I'm getting on:

This was what I brought home from New Zealand after the workshop at the Timaru mini-symposium and

this is what it looks like now:

 Not too much more to do!!

For those of you who like cute photos, here's one of my gorgeous Sam choosing the winner of the Sewmamasew Giveaway Day prize on my Sashiko Started It blog, isn't he brilliant?

Thank you to Heidi and Bobbi for organising another great Friday Night Sew-In, I'm looking forward to the next one already.


  1. What good way to spend your "Friday night sew in" and pleased to see how your "Storm at Sea" has progressed much more than my " Textured Tiles"!. How cute is Sam? I can see a very proud grandmother too.

    The Picton "rag picker!!

  2. More productive than my Friday night, though it was quilt related by watching The Quilt Show. Haven't done any sewing since I got back up north last weekend, must put that right!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog, re: my Mum, she is doing phenomenally well after her op. My sister, Dad and me are so pleased.

    Kind regards


  3. Oh, I love Nutella on toast too. Yummy!

    Quilt project is beautiful. Love the colors and pattern.

    Our FNSi isn't quite so beautiful, but was fun none the less. I love sewing.

    My pics are posted here

  4. Sam is a little cutie, and your storm at sea looks great too

  5. Hi Lis
    Your the lucky winner of my giveaway. i could not get the email link to work so if you could email me at with your address that would be great.

  6. Hi Lis, Yes, Friday night was agood one. I also enjoyed Ashes to Ashes whilst stitching away. No chocolate for me though, jellybabies instead. The storm is looking good. If you want to see what I did go to Flickr and look for Lochside quilter.

  7. Abi, I can't seem to leave a comment on your blog or find an email address, what I wanted to say was:
    I love the look of the fabric book. All those squares! Waiting patiently to see how they come together. Love FNSI


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
hugs, Lis x
