Was I on My OwN ?

For Friday Night Sew In... here in Australia. ?
I noticed that Heidi didn't have her "link" up... but I went ahead a had my very own PeRSoNaL FNSI...
I have been cleaning up and rearranging my space, discarding dress material stored in my cubbyhole for the last week... and now I have soooo much room for storing my "projects"... it's wonderful!
AND as the cubby is all so neat ,tidy and InSpiRinG....  last night I finished off block 1 "applique" that's been sitting procrastinating on the shelf! Don't know why I just didn't "do it" before this as I really enjoyed listening to music while sewing last night. Now I'm ready to get back to the hand sewing and then putting a few blocks together.

Wow, that's such a lovely block! I know exactly what you mean - I recently did a big spring cleaning of the apartment and I feel like I can breathe a little easier now! :D

I looked for Heidi's link up too, but was out and wasn't able to stitch. The "Girl's Day Out Quilt" is such a pretty one. The block is looking good.
