August Friday Night Sew-In Signup!!

Another month has FLOWN by!! Where has this summer gone? I guess all the new job activities on top of keeping my family happy, clean and fed has wiped me out! We also adopted a new doggie (more on him later). AND - I haven't told you, but I quit the first new job and accepted another one instead. It is a much better job working for someone I worked with in AZ for many years. And since it's based out of Arizona that means that I get to work out of my house!! Which will be great this winter and is great for my family. I started this 2nd new job last Monday.

Anyway - let's get to the sign-up for the next Friday Night Sew-In. It is right around the corner.. less than a week away. And I completely plan on sewing something fun this time.

If you need to know how the FNSI works.. click the link above. Otherwise just add your name to the list and start preparing for some F.U.N.

I've spent this entire week moving everything from my last 2 job assignments into my new classroom...Friday night I am sitting and stitching and nothing else! I'm so glad you have this..what a great excuse to sew!

Brenda said...

With all the business of my daughters wedding I have not even bothered to sign up in a couple of months. Hopefully nothing comes up for the 19th that I do not know about.

corina said...

I'm in the middle of painting the house and looking after my best friend who has just had a major surgery. The FNSI couldn't happen at a better time as I really could use some one on one time with my sewing machine!

pamkennison said...

Cant wait to join in again :)

Deon said...

I really, really hope that this time I'll be able to actually participate. I have several projects to work on, so that won't be an issue. Now I just need to sit down and actually do it next Friday!

My new baby girl is just two weeks old yesterday & I am hoping that by next Friday, I will be feeling up to sewing once again! The FNSI might be just the motivation I need to get back in front of one of my sewing machines. Hope to have something fun to share with you all...

creativeinstincts said...

Will join in on Friday. Really happy for you on your new job. A simple suggestion---could you include the date of the FNSI in the signup post every month. Would be really helpful.

Hi Heidi!

I've been seeing the FNSI around the interwebs, and decided to join in tonight. I'm thinking an apron or two for a special occasion tomorrow, and I've got some skirts that need finishing.

Looking forward to tonight!

Jamie Lee said...

I plan on making a quilt from the first pdf pattern I have ever bought. It's called "Starry Night" and I plan to make it for my daughter's birthday next month. Her name is Esther which means "star." Hope I get a lot done tonight...I am cutting the pieces now while the kids watch "The Neverending Story"...love that movie!

I'm joining the FNSI for the first time. I need some time to sew for me, but I won't get to until I make a pair of pants for DS the elder. So that's what I'm going to work on.
