Flowers & things.

Yesterday afternoon i spent time preparing a pile of hexagons. Cutting out the freezer paper, sorting through the fabrics, ironing the freezer paper onto chosen fabrics & then cutting & gluing ready for sewing together. Hopefully i’ve enough for the next couple of weeks. :) Last night was sewing time & this is what i managed to get made.

These 2 patterns arrived yesterday. One is a Quilters Poem to either embroider or leave as is as it comes with preprinted fabric along with poem on paper. The other pattern is all Christmas deco’s.

This book arrived today. I haven’t had time to look through it yet as i’ve been working on ufo’s. That makes 4 more removed from the ufo pile. They just need binding now. Had to quit for today as the pain in my back & knee was making it to hard to sit & sew. Oh well. There’s always tomorrow to sit & sew. :)
