It's the start of something new

Good afternoon, I hope the weather is better for you than it is here. We have rain :-(.

Do you work from a list? I do. I have lists for most things and the last few weeks I have been frantically beavering away at my Christmas handmade list. ( I have so much to share with you). What I haven't done is craft for the sake if crafting. So today I decided to start something new.

I seem be seeing hexagons everywhere at the moment. I love them.

The problem I have is I want a cushion, a bag, a blanket, a scarf..... The list goes on and on. I have an image in my head of a big hexagon blanket on our bed, lots of mismatch where every hexagon tells a story - a child's old clothes, mums apron and so on.

I have a bag of old scraps that I am using. Some are old fabrics

Some are new

I don't quite know what I am going to make yet but I am just enjoying the simple stitching just for the sake of it with no deadline.

I will keep you updated.

  1. Those are lovely fabrics. I'm crafting to a deadline at the moment, but I find that it stifles my creativity a bit. Fabric cutting really must begin tomorrow or I'll never get my daughter's quilt made for Christmas!

  2. I love hexies! I have a little project I need to pick up again after Christmas...and yes, I have saved clothes from both my girls in the hopes of making hexie quilts one day... Cx
