Colourful Fridays ~ Copper

Cheryll hit the nail on the head when she said "Fridays are Fantastic". Every second Friday is colourful and once a month we can have a Sew-In. There's also some good TV shows on that I like to watch on a Friday night and I can get lots of sewing done. Then there's the chance like this month and last month that the 25th fell on a Friday for sharing Christmas items.

Copper was the chosen colour this round and I immediately thought of our old 1 and 2 cent coins ... I put a few away as keepsakes when they were taken out of circulation in 1992.

Please click on the realated buttons on my sidebars to see more colour, sewing and Christmas items.

I'd love to hear what you like about Fridays.
