Emu Takes a Duck and FNSI

Last night I joined with 52 others over at Sugarlane Quilts for Friday Night Sew In.  I haven't participated for months and it was just the opportunity I needed to get me back on that stitching/sewing bandwagon.

I picked my design which happens to be called Emu Takes a Duck from Smeedesigns Stitchery Pattern, Australian Afternoon and ironed my whisperweft on the back, gathered my supplies, found a favourite spot to sit, made sure my OT-lite was nearby.

Then I found I just couldn't wait until Friday Night so I made myself comfortable, turned on a catch-up episode of Downton Abbey and began to stitch.

This seat is perfect for stitching.  It is in a corner surrounded by two windows and I can keep an eye on the weather, the birds, the wind in the trees and any passers by. There is lots of natural light which is something I sorely lacked in my last house.

I got all the grass stitched and the wicket keepers baggy green cap but then it was time to get some other jobs done and take the dogs for a walk.  I went up to the dam and will be blogging about that on Cath @ Home very shortly but let me tease with you with a pic of our sunset last night.

I cooked my farmer a lovely dinner and then I settled to watch a new episode of Midsomer Murders and stitched my way through that. I finished stitching the wickets and the flat of the bat as well as making a start on the Emu's feathers. 

Right, now I am off to see how everone else did.
