The Hexagon Club

I have joined a Tuesday evening stitchers group at The Quilted Crow - open for ANYONE to join. It has been a lot of fun and some seriously crazy women (sorry guys but all good!)! Just what a mama needs. It has re-fired my stitching groove. Leonie and Deirdre have started a Hexagon Quilt Club. We are waiting for 'the committee' to decide on an official name. I am actually rather excited about this project. It uses fabrics I love but also it is so extremely manageable for me. Each week we cut 12 hexagons which we then tack on to the hexagon paper piece. We keep six and take the remaining six back to the next get together to swap. We then sew the pieces we collected, to the growing quilt. I have never done a hexagon quilt so this is a great way for me to learn and produce.

Hello hello hello!

I finished Gail Pans A Christmas Wish BOM from last year.

FINALLY and I am really pleased with it.

Despite winter coming to a close I finished this scarf to go with my brown top I wear a lot with jeans.

Like the wool for the scarf, I also picked this half cross stitch pattern at the Melbourne Stitches and Craft show. It is an easy and simple project. Not sure what I will do with her. i have two more of Anette Eriksson's kits to do.

I have already started a lap quilt for the Little Man. Using blue reproduction fabrics. Loving it already.

Life has been all consumed by the building of the new business. It is getting SO CLOSE to the launch. I will let you in on it real soon. Promise.
