Friday Night Sew-In - FNSI Update



It's been a while since I joined my lovely internet friends with FNSI (Friday Night Sew-In). I signed up over at Wendy's blog and was looking forward to creating up a storm last night... and then, we decided to head up to Costco after collecting the kids from school.

Luckily for me, I have a husband who doesn't mind driving so that I can craft in the passenger seat. I managed to get a few more crochet granny squares completed on the way. My little pile of solid colour crochet granny squares is slowly growing. I've rewound the yarn into small balls which makes it easier to keep a couple in my handbag with my crochet hook and teeny scissors. It's amazing how much less space they take up when they're rewound. 





We stayed there so long that it was dark before we headed home, so I didn't get any crocheting done on the way home. Instead, I offered to drive us home. 

Geez we bought a lot of stuff. The car boot was stuffed so high with our Esky (yes, we've done this once or twice and know that we can't resist buying the cold items), general shopping and giant packages of toilet paper - that I couldn't see out of the rear-view mirror! Luckily it was mainly freeway driving, so I didn't need to do much lane changing.




My little lady was quite besotted with this teddy bear. He's taller than she is and super dooper cuddly. She's decided that she's going to save up to buy him next time we visit the store. I think she'll need to keep saving up for a little while yet.

Have you been to Costco? What's your favourite buy? I love the cake section. Honestly, how can we resist a 2kg cheesecake?

    1. Costco is certainly an experience... and I must admit that I'm glad that it's not close by. I'd spend a fortune!!

    1. Thank you. YouTube is the place where I learned how to crochet. If you ever want to start, YouTube is certainly the place to start with squillions of tutorials :)

    1. Thank you! I’m proud to report that with a week of dancing, soccer and karate, the pile has grown since then.

  6. Such cute little Granny squares. I love how they are so portable - rewinding your yarn was a good idea :-)
