Friday night at last!

Friday night is champagne night for me in our house - to celebrate surviving another week! It has become a tradition for our family to collapse in front of the tele, eat lots of antipasto & fruit & enjoy some bubbly - that's me enjoying the bubbly, not the kids! I am wondering whether Ric Rac might have imbibed a little of the fizzy stuff last Friday night when she wrote this post - very funny, & surely destined to be the official anthem of every Friday night, stay-at-home stitcher! In case you are wondering what the foreign object is in my glass, my lovely friend Wendy (& fellow champagne drinker!) sent me some wild hibiscus flowers. These are gorgeous real flower buds preserved in a luscious syrup which open amongst the bubbles in your glass - very special! Do try them if you ever have the chance. So not much sewing for me tonight - although perhaps it's just the time to give my stippling a go! Hmmm, probably safer just to settle in to watch Silent Witness & Spooks! Watching Rupert Penry-Jones save us all from terrorists is a whole lot more appealing than the bloody prospect of stippling my finger! Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. Hey sweetie, what fun to have Friday champagne night! I may have to adopt that. And you just reminded me that I am only on season 3 of Spooks and am starting to have withdrawals. I think I was distracted by Life on Mars then Ashes to Ashes. I do love Spooks though. I don't know Silent Witness, I'll have to check it out.

    Though I have never tried stippling while a bit tipsy, I did try top stitching a purse (black thread on black fabric) while heavily medicated and overly tired. Lets just say my seam ripper got a lot of use then next day. Stippling though, you might love what you come up with, as long as your finger isn't part of it. Have a great weekend! Love Stacy

  4. I like your tradition!! I have been known to indulge in a Champers or two on a Friday night and I watch Silent Witness and Spooks (although last night I went to sleep when Spooks started). The antipasto and food idea is good idea, no cooking! Although I am not sure it would fill up DH. Will give it a try.
