Friday Night Sew-In A Success! February 20, 2010

I had been very excited about the Friday Night Sew-In (any excuse, right?) but I almost didn’t make it!  My husband was playing a benefit for Haiti tonight, which left me free to spend the entire night in front of my machine without guilt.  I tucked the kids in bed, put on my favorite pjs, and started laying out the supplies.  And then the baby was crying.  Fresh diaper and I’m back to sewing.  Then the baby woke up again.  Grrrr…. doesn’t he know mommy wants to sew?  So we end up watching television until he falls asleep.  I repeated this process a total of four times.  But somehow I actually managed to get a bit done.  The two holiday wall hangings I started from scratch and now they just need to be quilted.  The flower wall hanging was already pieced but I finished most of the needle turn applique.  I can’t believe how much I actually got accomplished.  And now I have two more projects crossed off my list and can buy more guilt free!
