Friday Night Stitch-In

Yesterday, I joined a Facebook group called Friday Off the Grid by Caroline of Off The Grid Needlearts. You may also recognize her from her YouTube channel of the same name Off the Grid Needlearts. So many links all the same name...hope I got them correct!

Anyway...Friday Off the Grid is an internet stitch-in held every Friday from 6pm to midnight. We post a picture of our project(s) at the start and again at the end. It was a lot of fun!

I was late to the party, spending time with Dash as he would be gone all day today, so I didn't get to start until 9pm. No one kicked me out so the rules must be pretty loose, right? I was able to stitch from 9pm to 1am. Ooo, I stayed a little late! Yes, I'm that guest you have to ask to leave cause I'm having so much fun I don't realise the party's over!

At 9.

At 1.

I got half a sheep, a zero, some grass and some fencing put up and I watched three episodes of The Handmaid's Tale and a couple of Floss Tubes. I had gotten the first half sheep, a tree and a one put in the night before whilst watching entire seasons of the Midnight Quilt Show. For those that don't know, I am The Queen of Slow Stitching so this is incredible progress. Shocking, really.

You ought to check out the links above and join us on Friday nights! We'd love to stitch with you!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Love the sheep and you actually got a lot done. I need to catch up on the Handmaiden's Tale. I only saw season one and found it quite fascinating.

Have a great night and Sunday- xo Diana

Great progress! I love the design and colors...those sheep are adorable and would have put me right to sleep LOL.
That sounds like a fun group, I’m glad you found and joined them.
