Friday Night with Friends over at Cheryll's

Last night I had my first virtual stitching with friends and I really enjoyed it and got quite a lot done. Although I have to say trying to explain it to my other half was hilarious and now I am sure that he thinks I have gone completely off my rocker.......he did however provide some sweeties.
They went down a treat and kept my energy levels high for all the stitching I got done.
I managed to finish another little redwork block and also 3 little stars for the gift box. I even got back to my Mini  and did a couple of stitches before the full time hooter sounded and the lights were turned off.
Crazy as it sounds I really loved knowing that in other parts of Australia and overseas other likeminded women were doing the same thing. I hope you all got a little stitching done too.
Thanks so much Cheryll  for being such a charming hostess and now I am off to see what everyone else has in their sewing baskets.
Blessings Michelle xxx
