First Friday of each month is Friday Night with Friends. Cheryll hosts a linkup for stitchers and crafters around the world to get together virtually for some fun. I am lucky it is a virtual meet up because I am hopeless when it comes to staying up much past 8:30pm so I try to get an early start and still go to bed 'on time'. It usually means I don't get much done but all those little bits of sewing here and there one day add up to be a finished product and I enjoy the process just as much as the end result anyway.
This month I decided to finally cut into the puffin fabric I received as a Christmas gift. I love puffins! I only had a fat quarter so I wasn't sure how to make the best use of it. A bag, a zipper pouch? I decided on a cover for my journal. I'll take it with me when I go over to Iceland and the UK . And yes, I am hoping to see real puffins when I'm over there.
And, I still have enough of the fabric left over for a small zippered pouch.
Usually I make journal covers out of a print that has some sort of large feature I can pick out to quilt but this one, I just quilted around each little puffin. Now they are kind of puffy which I like.
As I went to bed on time and didn't start sewing early, I only got an hour or so in of cutting and stitching and procrastinating and chatting so I didn't finish my journal cover. Well how could I, I am undecided about which binding fabric to use. Won't take many minutes to finish though so that's good.
Cheryll. Now it's time to check out what all of the other Friends got up to on Friday night.
