Pinnie Parade – Week 2

My round-up of week 2 of the Pinnie Parade! So far I’m still managing to post a pinnie a day even while being away! I’m actually really enjoying this. It’s a great way to use up all those little scraps and revisit fabrics you forgot you had because they have been retired to the scrap…… Continue reading Pinnie Parade – Week 2

Happy Hexies – Floral Coaster

I think you know me well enough by now to know that I love hexies! So when my mum kindly gave me a copy of the new book Happy Hexies by Boutique Sha I knew it wouldn’t be long before I made something from it! My lack of posts recently is because we’ve been on holiday, I…… Continue reading Happy Hexies – Floral Coaster

Pretty Hexie Pincushion

I thought I would start the year with making something pretty, and you can’t get much prettier with sweet floral Tilda fabrics. It all started when I came across this little hexie flower in my sewing box, the hardest part was deciding what backing fabric to use. I was drawn to both the dots and the floral,…… Continue reading Pretty Hexie Pincushion

As you may already know I’m a ‘little’ obsessed with hexagons, and after finishing my hexie mat the other week it got the brain cogs churning. I have so many fabric scraps that I can never bear to part with and…… Continue reading Shop Update – Hexie Purses

Do you remember my last post I was having some fun with my leftover scrap hexies, well this is it finished! And it turns out it makes a perfect little mat for my sewing machine.

Playing with ‘Left-overs’

After blogging about my Spring Stitching Club quilt it reminded me that I had some hexies left over that I didn’t use, and as a way to grip onto a little bit of spring sunshine I thought I’d see if I could come up with something for the rest of them. I think it’ll either be…… Continue reading Playing with ‘Left-overs’

Stitchy progress!

I’ve finally finished my hexie quilt top! I have to admit there was a point when I thought it would never be finished, especially when I had to un-pick an entire row! But now I can say it’s done! Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed stitching this but there does come a time when you…… Continue reading Stitchy progress!

A little catch up

Hello there! I know it’s been a while but *whispers* I’ve still been unwell. Onwards and upwards I hope to be back on top of things soon! I thought I would share with you my completed cross stitch from my last post. It took longer than I had planned, but it’s done now and I’m…… Continue reading A little catch up
