A new card holder for Friday Night Sew In

I had a great night tonight joining in with lots of creative people for Friday Night Sew In. Thank you to Wendy for hosting; dinner was delicious (definitely a recipe to try at home).

Part of the night was spent "choosing" fabric for my next Anni Downs block - (not happy with the fabrics I've chosen tonight so will try again in the daylight) but here's what I've accomplished so far - 

 the needle turn applique is improving with each stitch.

I did do some sewing... I received a beautiful felt purse kit for Christmas from Kaye over at Kitten Stitching. Now this is my favourite purse and I love it to bits but I do struggle finding the "right" card.

So I consulted my friend "google" and found a pattern over at Nancy's Couture. Fabric chosen; sewing machine ready..... and the end result is.......

I should never lose a card again.  

Hope everyone else had a productive night; I'll pop round over the weekend to admire..........
