Thursday Night Sewing

Do you have a sewing or crafty group you belong to? Me and some friends started getting together several years ago on Thursday nights. Some friends have come and some have gone but for the most part, we've got a solid few that will probably always hang out together. The gatherings during the holidays were scarse but we are getting back into the swing of things now. We tried to think of a name for our group because we hear all these cool little initials, like GNO for Girls Night Out or SNB for Stitch 'n B**ch. But we have struck a big zero with a name. Any ideas? We're kind of loud, and crazy. We laugh a lot and we talk too much. We always eat. :o)
If you think of a name we can call our group, I'll send you a little goodie.

Last night, I worked on one of my ufo's. I have five redwork snowmen for a Backporch Friends swap. This is one of the blocks. I think Sherrie made this one.


I worked in EQ6 and came up with a couple of ideas. I had three settings done up and asked my hubby which one he liked. He picked one out so I printed up the foundation pages and got to sewing. I got two blocks made like this.....

And two made like this.
So, I got all the blocks sewed together with the embroidered blocks. I picked out some fabric for two borders and will try to get those added this weekend. Maybe I'll even get it quilted!!!!

I'm in a stitch group that meets on the first Thursday night of the month and we call our group "TNT" which stands for "Thursday Night Therapy". Feel free to use it, too, if you like.

Oooh, so so cute! And I love the setting. I'm usually kind of prejudiced against snowmen, even though I think they're adorable, because we live in So Cal and c'mon, snowmen?! But Carolyn's snowman BOM from a couple of years ago was too cute to resist, and now I see yours... maybe it's time for me to embrace 'em!
