I have been wanting to participate in the Friday Night Sew-In since I first heard about it this summer, but I never remember until after it has already past. Yesterday evening as I was making supper I realized that it was probably about the right time for it, so I went to Handmade by Heidi and checked just to make sure.
Friday Night Sew-In is a party hosted by Heidi and her cousin Bobbi of Crafty Vegas Mom and all you have to do is, well, sew on a Friday night. Of course you have to show-off what you work on, too.
Usually once I get the kids to bed I want nothing more than to just sit down for a bit and catch up on what everyone else has been up to. That's right, I almost never sew at night! Honestly, I'm usually so tired at the end of the day that staying up late to sew just doesn't stand a chance against a little computer time and my bed! I am not one of those people who can function well on 5 hours of sleep either. I am a much better mom when I've gotten some sleep!
Roger was working last night, so once I got the kids to bed I didn't waste any time getting my machine out and continuing to quilt my Christmas Tree Pants. I've been working on and off over the last couple days to get the quilting done. It really doesn't take that long to finish a star once I get uninterrupted time to just sit down and do it, so I got all the quilting finished last and sliced them into pants.
Now I just need to tackle the binding...
