Friday Night Sew In

Handmade by Heidi
 
Not to be confused with my Finish It Friday:)
 
Heidi at Handmade by Heidi has been doing this Friday Night Sew-In for a while. I started joining in off and on about a year ago, but haven't participated for several months. I thought this would be a good time for me to work on a couple of my sewing projects off my '52 in 52' goals list. I am wanting to get a quilt done for us, a couple smaller quilts to give away and a couple dolls or teddy bears to give away at some point this year. So I decided, since it was already started I would work on the quilt for us. Actually this was a project that I had originally started with my first 'Friday Night Sew-In' post:)
 
 
I started out with 4 rows already sewn up. This project probably hasn't been touched for over 6 months now:) I don't know how many times I've mentioned my high frustration levels while machine sewing, but it just isn't one of my favorite things. I did have some sweets by my side to help with the process, and I limited myself to 10-20 min sections of time, which seemed to help quite a bit.

 
I ended up with 7 1/2 rows, so I almost doubled my previous progress. The only reason I stopped there is that I needed to cut more fabric. So my plan is to have lots more fabric already cut and ready to go before the next Friday Night Sew-In - which will be March 22nd. Maybe I can double my progress again:)

Visiting from FNSI - Looks like good progress, keep at it... I find cups of tea and the occasional tussle with the dog are also good for breaking uo those intesive sewing sessions. :)
