Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

My plan for Friday evening was to work on this lovely wall hanging which were hanging around for  a while. The background was already finished so I've taken  my scissors and cut all pieces which took me a lot of time because some of them are  pretty small. Sewing  hearts wasn't a problem, body of the biggest  sheep  also didn't take much time but then I faced a problem. Not big, but a problem:  none of my threads match the face of big sheep. Nedless to say that I have pearl threads in many different colours, but all of them were just wrong. So my cute little sheeps went back to UFO box until I get the right thread to match them.

The night was still young and I had enough time for another project to work on. Few weeks ago I bought these tea towels planning to make them a little prettier.

Three of them were already finished, the other three got their crocheted edge on Friday evening. These tea towels are going to be a Christmas gift , don't know yet who of my friends will  get it.

I'm very pleased how I spent Friday night, sewing with friends is always a pleasure, no matter how far they might be. See you next FNWF again.
