Friday night with friends

my post is a little late (as usual) but i did take part in

one of the things i really love doing is making up my own pattern
Now i am definitely no designer 
but i do occasionally get inspired and have a play at making up my own pattern

so this friday night i had a play
i used some left over fabric from my scrubs and used some special
heat resistant wadding
and did some quilting, i used this really cool wavy stitch my machine can do

almost finished . . . . doesn't the wavy stitch look cool . . . 

i cut out this really cool kidney shape and made two pockets for the back
stitched some binding on



my new pot holder

i hope you had a great friday night stitching with friends
