November FNSI Signup is finally HERE!!

You're FIRED!!! Yep.. that's what Bobbi and I should have heard today!

Early this morning, my cohost contacted me and the conversation went something like this..

Bobbi: "Um.. isn't the Friday Night Sew-In in three days?"
Me: "Wait.. what?... YES! What have we done!!"

This Month has went flying by and the FNSI totally snuck up on us! We thought about cancelling - but honestly.. we ALL have too much to do with the Holiday's right around the corner. We just can't cancel!

So here it is.. the signup is here! Get your name on the list and commit to working on those gifts on your To Do list.. or any any other projects that need your attention.

Thanks for remembering, Bobbi!

No need to have to PLAN anything... I have several projects that need finishing before the holidays!

Larissa said...

Can't join in this month (uni assignment!!)... or next (away, no sewing machine, no way of posting achievement...will probably be doing some needleturn applique and/or stitchery though so will be 'with' you in spirit, lol) ... I will, however have a squizzy around at everyone's achievements once this unit is finished.
Enjoy your night everyone!!!

Tina said...

You're human, just like the rest of us. Really, i'm surpised i've never left my kids at the mall, or something.

Kristen said...

I will be finishing a block for a new pillow! And finishing another half started. Will stick to the plan this Friday!

Rachel said...

Yay! I missed the last one because I was at a conference. I have a couple of little, Christmassy projects I can finish on Friday night. You just supplied the impetus to get them done!

sunny said...

I sure hadn't thought of it yet! Sorry, it will take a lot more than this to get fired. You're too eager. Now I must go check out my project list and gather my materials.

supersara20 said...

Glad I'm going to be doing this on the correct Friday this time!

Melissa said...

Lots of projects on my list! I'll be there with bells on...wait, that might be distracting. Well, I'll be there...or here....however this works out :) LOL

Christine M said...

Hello Heidi and Bobbi. I've just signed up to join you in the Friday Night Sew In. This is the first time I've signed up and I hope this won't be the last. I've been watching the FNSI for ages but always seem to have something on that night. But not this month!

Looking forward to the next FNSI...time to pick one of the wip projects...

Gemini Jen said...

My Friday night happens a bit before yours (seeing as I am on the other side of the world in New Zealand) - have actually got training on Friday night for the job I'm going to be doing on the day of our government elections - so will be doing my patchwork on Saturday - so I figure that will be about the same time as your Friday night sew in! Looking forward to quilting a Christmas lap quilt gift and finishing the binding on a brights lap quilt for myself.

barbknits said...

I have a few things to sew... The most important is a Kindle cover to present to my soon-to-be 13 year old on his birthday in 10 days!!! I have a few blocks from a stalled BOM that I was doing, I think I'll make some more blocks until I run out of fabric and either have a quilt or a table runner. :) So, just 2 projects tomorrow.

I just stumbled across your blog/website via a link on flickr and I really love the idea of the friday night sew in! (what a great excuse to sit and sew!) and I had to sign up (I have too many half done or barely started projects that could totally get done if I'd commit!)

Thanks for the idea and inspiration! (and now I'll have to make time to read back through your blog since it seems to be filled with all sorts of fantastic-ness!
