SBEBB and Sewing Nights

Yesterday i joined the SBEBB (Stitching Blogger Exchange Board) and i am so excited about it! I thought long and hard about whether i'd have time to do it and came to the conclusion that i do, even if that means i'll never stitch anything for myself ever LOL. Today i signed up for my first exchange which will be the "Specific Designer Exchange." The designer chosen is LHN so that suits me just fine seeing as it's one of my favourites and, as you know by now, LHN is the theme of the RR we're doing at the moment. Here's how Donna's is lookingSo i now have to keep a close track of all my deadlines which im going to post in the sidebar to help me keep record.

Thanks for all the comments about the quilting! Im really looking forward to it and for those of you who asked - i will definitely still be stitching! I'm also so excited that one of my friends has really got into sewing these days and has signed up to come to the class with my mum and i. Someone my age who shares my hobby! Yeah!! In fact, last night, we had our first "sewing" night at my house, much to the amusement of our other friends! It was actually only Lori and I stitching, the other 2 watched a dvd and laughed at us. This is me pretending (badly) that i haven't noticed the cameraand here is Lori surrounded by stash boxes!and i'll leave you with this cute picture of Fiona, Lori's little one, wondering what on earth i was doing!

Your LHN RR is looking great. I've joined an exchange group, and don't plan to. I have so many comittments, stitching and otherwise that I wouldn't be able to deal with the pressure. But I love to see what people stitch for each other ;)

Congrats on joining the SBEBB. I'd love to do that at a future date. I just don't see myself having the time though until I'm working less.
Just not enough hours in the day!!

These pictures are loevly, and Fiona is adorable. She'll understand once she gets a little older, just look at Amy and Katie!
Let your friends laugh. One day, I promise you, you will all be sitting around stitching like all normal people should!

Great to discover your blog Cheryl - I love the idea of your sewing nights, what a great idea! Congratulations on joining the SBEBB - I'm looking forward to seeing all the lovely things you will stitch!

LOL at you 'trying' not to notice the camera, this is something that I would do. You will have to try to convert your DVD watching friends to stitching.
