This i my display stand. An antique spinning wheel i recently bought. It’s missing the cord from around the big wheel to the small wheel which i’ll have to get replaced. It’s really just for display purposes though. I haven’t used a spinning wheel since i was about 16 so i don’t know how i’d go at spinning now.

I was going to start making the hexie bag pattern up when i realised the 1/2” hexie shapes off the internet may not be quite right. Better to order pre-cut shapes to ensure the bag comes out the right size to fit the handles. I ordered another handle while i was ordering the hexies so now i can make both bags. :)

Found this sweet pincushion design over at Cori's . The pattern has 2 styles. I love pincushions. Don’t use most of them. I seem to collect them for display.

This came in the mail yesterday. Couldn’t resist Bronwyn Hayes new pattern. :) I had to go into town today so i went to Bargain Box &  bought some of the fabrics needed. As the rest are small pieces for applique they will come out of my stash.

Love your hexie's, great colors! Your spinning wheel is beautiful. I have a spinning wheel but have found no time to spin for years, not even sure if I could spin a decent yarn anymore, sooo sad.

The blue flower is my favorite. I haven't yet ventured into blue fabrics with my hexies, but yours is really pretty. Looks like you have alot of ongoing projects to keep you busy.

Christina said...

Me fascinan tus hexies... Yo también tuve problemas con las plantillas mas pequeñitas... Encontré una manera de crearlas con el "Word" en "patchworkycia.blogspot.com". Salen casi perfectos, pero luego hay que cortarlos... ¡¡¡ja!!! ¡¡¡ja!!!
