FNSI results--a little late

Friday night was the April edition of the Friday Nite Sew-In. The weekend was a little busy so I didn't get this posted until now. I sat in front of the television and worked on the quilt I started for my youngest son about 3 years. I have been hand quilting this quilt and I really love the look of it but my stitching isn't very straight sometimes so I end up pulling out almost as many stictches as I am putting in. No wonder it is taking me so long to get it finished! The batteries died in my camera so I had to use this older picture because I am now working on the block next to the one in the picture.

Friday Nite Sew-In

The April Friday Nite Sew-In is happening this Friday the 18th. After all the planning and organizing for the vow renewal ceremony and party for my husband's and my 25th anniversary I am looking forward to getting back to my sewing machine!

A Different Idea...

The vow renewal date is only a week away! The party is going to be small but there is still many details to work through. For our wedding we had a guest book for our guests to sign and I was going to put it out again for the vow renewal except I can't find it. So, after some exploring on the Internet I came up with this idea. I printed a couple of pictures on fabric and added borders to look like a framed picture. I have a fabric marker for signatures/comments.

I also made up a label and hanging sleeve for the back of this wall hanging so it is already to hang after the celebration.

This sign will be displayed with the wall hanging. I have been learning quite a few new things on the computer while arranging this party. My oldest son taught me how to make a DVD slide show of old pictures of my husband, me and the kids complete with music. I am looking forward to using it in the ceremony.
