After spending Sunday & Monday preparing hexies i only managed 2 blue 1” ones this week.
2 1/2” ones &
1 1/4” one.
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.
These 2 i bought just because i could. :)
