What's keeping me busy...


More gifts for friends, like this wallet/checkbook cover.

Fabrics: Alexander Henry Apples & Pears and Joel Dewberry Rose Damask. Label: my design printed by Etsy seller BitsyCreations.



Making progress on my hexes:


Decided I should do something about fabric for the middles so I could get to sewing the hexagon flowers together. Sometimes I think I am clever, like when I picked this Wonderland by MoMo fabric. I can use the fun circles for centers and may use the plain parts for flower borders. I really like how this gives me some variety while tying things together.


Also excited about the Amy Butler Mid Mod contest. I've got an idea in mind and have been working on some prototypes as I wait to get some Midwest Modern fabric. Want to try the contest, or just want some of that gorgeous fabric? Jenna Lou Designs is having a Midwest Modern fabric giveaway!


What's keeping you busy?

Very cool! Can't wait to see more of your projects. :) I especially like the wallet ... something about damask and apples speaks to me. Lol.

I love the checkbook cover and those hexagons are just adorable! I'm trying to hone my sewing skills a little more before I jump into quilting, but I can't wait to make a table runner with hexagon flowers!

Thanks guys! I was pretty proud of using the MoMo dots for hexes, myself. :-)
