I started out with a plan. I'd cut out the templates and had everything out ready to get to work....
should have know things were going too smoothly. When it came to the cutting..... I just went right off the idea of using the fabric bundle I'd pulled out. It's nice fabric but I just don't think it suits this quilt pattern.I fancied some really vibrant and zingy fabric so I searched my fabric stash for some. Can you tell me why I wasted an hour rummaging through boxes looking for something I knew I didn't have?
That was the original plan down the drain then.
But.... while I was searching for the 'perfect' fabric for the first project these caught my eye.....
Two cute plastic cubes of 3" squares... one in greens the other neutrals. What could I make with them? They were cut out and ready to go and I was starting to panic that the clock was ticking on my FNWF and I hadn't done anything.

So.... that's it. My Friday Night With Friends...... thanks for your company everyone. Thanks to you too Cheryll for making it all possible. I'll be round to see what you've been up to very soon.
I've got loads of bloggy catching up to do. Had the most frustrating week ever! Apologies for being late responding to comments and e.mails. I'm wearing my horsehair nightie to bed tonight as punishment...... I promise to do better.... honest.
Speaking of bed...... gotta go count some sheep!
See ya soon.... in the meantime.. have fun
