Friday Night With Friends

Well I joined up with Cheryll and many others last night for a sewing session.

I started off early sourcing my fabric and my pattern. I was interrupted by a work colleague who knew I was home with no kids and invited me for tea. So I headed out had yummy Thai and a few glasses of wine.

Well when I got home it was quite late and I wanted to be part if the night so I thought of doing something small. I had bought some cute Babushka Xmas decorations (did you know that the baby doll is a symbol of baby Jesus. As each doll is a layer to reach Him! I didn't know this until I attended a meeting on Wednesday!)

Now I had seen on Pinterest a clever lady using an orphan doll and creating a pincushion. I found the pattern and realized she used a foam egg covered in fabric. Mmm at ten o'clock no shops open and no foam egg it was not looking good.

So I ended up making a circle out of fabric, gathered it together and then filling it with doll fill.

I pushed it in to the base of the doll and there it was a new pin cushion.

This was my FRIDAY NIGHT WITH FRIENDS creation. Very simple but due to the time I had it was all I could do.

Today I am going to make more as I sit and catch up with my taped shows.
