Friday Night Sew-In II

Okay last night was the second Friday Night Sew in hosted by Heidi and Bobbi. I know that it is suppose to be a stay at home and sew in your pajamas evening, but my sister, Judy and I use it as a get together at her house to sew. This time our friend Annette joined us.
So after a nice supper, cooked by my brother-in-law, it was upstairs to sew. All the ingredients for a wonderfully productive evening right? Wrong, the night was wonderful, good friends, the Olympics playing in the back ground, the hum of sewing machine whirling in the night, but wait what's that sound?  Errk...Errk... Oh no! What's up with my machine?  That's right mechanical failure, seems that thread has wrapped around the lower pulley of my feather weight. Forty-five or so minutes later I'm all fixed and ready to go.  All I have to do is make some bias stems for my applique, easy right? Not such an easy chore but eventually I got it done. So here's my big accomplishment for Friday Night Sew -In Part Deux.
Whoo hoo you say, you got a lot done... Look closely, see that green vine running across the checker board? That, my friends is my accomplishment ! That's it and 

 
this... sewn to the quilt but yet to be appliqued in place. Okay not my most productive evening but still beacoup fun! Thanks Heidi and Bobby for hosting. When's the next one?
