FNSI on SaTurDaY

Any bloggers in Australia and New Zealand who participated in  FNSI  have already had their sewing time... while others in other parts of the world are just about to start theirs. Visit HERE to see what others have done.
I can only speak for myself ... but I had a GrEaT night !!!!!
Pizza for dinner... yum! Fast, easy, with little clean up... fantastic!
Then off I twaddled upstairs.
Firstly... to finish off the top of my Friends with Benefits swap gift. I cannot show too much this morning BUT I don't think this gives AnYThiNg away.
Just a little of this still to be finished...

                       but so far, so good.

Christine can expect her gift on time which is a relief for me as next week I'll be extremely busy.
You'll see why later...

Next... I worked on another "CuBe".
Now I know I was asked by some to do a tut (and I will I promise)... but last night I just wanted to get this one sewn together as I had cut it out during the week. I had almost completed the blanket stitch around the numbers (alphabet on other one)...so there wasn't much left to do...
sew a little...squish a little... and another UFO became a FO.


Just had to hand stitch to close this morning... and TaaDaa... matching cubes !

Lastly... I used up a couple of skeins of yarn I had and made a neck cowl for the upcoming Australian winter.
It's ABBIE from Moda Vera (from Spotlight) and in a very pretty autumn colour. I used size 9mm needles and cast on 15 stitches (approx 5 inch) and knitted in seed stitch until all 4 skeins were knitted up, approx 46inches. Then I stitched the ends together. To wear it, it's just pulled over the head and looped back over again.... easy peasy!
I think I've started off the career of a new super model too.
I did see this beauty (which gave me the inspiration) but as my yarn wasn't as thick as the one shown I just joined my longer length together instead. This one may be next though... 
How pretty is it!!!

And the reason for my concern in having Christine's gift ready for her on time is...
ONLY 1 WEEK until DD's BiG day...
And subsequently... family visitors from Canada until Easter.

I hope everyone participating in FNSI (Friday Night Sew In) with Heidi and the gang, has had as much FuN as I did. I'll be around later to see YoUr masterpieces.

You got a lot done. You did it up right with having pizza and a easy clean up. I am right in there I would love to see a tutorial on how to make your blocks. They look like a lot of fun to make. Your scarf is beautiful. I wish I could learn to knit but I am all fingers so I stick with crochet.
Hugs
