FnwF and St Paddy

It's Saturday here is Australia so us Aussies have had our Friday night with Friends. I, for one, had a great night. Well it actually started in the afternoon as it started to rain here which made for a lovely time in my cubbyhole. My space needed a clean up BaDLy... so that's what I did... then I could EnJoY my night with all of YoU!

I made a little bag for the daughter of a work colleague of DD2. Her fav colour was green but she also loves rainbow... so I thought this fabric was rainbow PeRFecT... hope she does too...
Then I finished off some hand sewing on my March SAL item. It's the side panel of the pin cushion which shows needles, pins, cotton and a machine... soooo cute... and all that's required now is to piece the top and bottom... EasY... PeasY... so I'm in great shape for the March commitment.
Finally I hand stitched the binding on a pillow. Will show you the finished project a little later... as I need to add a couple of buttons to finish it off. Stay tuned....
How DiD YoU Go sewing with YouR FRienDs?
I'll be around over the weekend to catch up with you!

I HoPe YoU ALL HaD SoMe FuN !!!

Do you have... or almost have... your 
St PATRICKs DAY MiNi 
ready for mailing on March 6th?

If you want to play in this swap... and if I haven't listed YOUR name on the sidebar...leave me your name NOW... on this post... or email me.
I will get partners details out EaRLy on Monday (OZ time).

LAST CHANCE...to enjoy some Irish fun.
