My lovely friend Sheila, sent me a gorgeous table topper for Christmas along with these pretty purple blooms.
Another lovely friend, Lynda(no blog), sent me this project holder for my birthday. I just love it & have a project already in mind to store in it. :)
Here is a full view of both outside & inside. Along with the holder was included some hexagon templates. Lynda must’ve read my mind as i need some 1” templates for a project from Natalie Birds Tis the Season stitchery book. Aren’t i lucky to have 2 such lovely friends. :)
As it is Thursday i’m a day late with posting my hexies. I was going to stop at 100 with the 1” hexies & decide whether to add a path or not. I’ve not counted the hexies for a while & decided to do so today. The count for the 1” hexies is at 107, bit over the 100 i know. :) The 1/2” hexies are at 66 & the 1/4” are at 22.
The 1” & 1/2” hexie blooms,
& the 1/4”.
I decided this year not to make a gingerbread house but to make a star tree. I really hate the recipes supplied with the cutters. I managed to get the dough to work in the end but the stars didn’t cook properly. I think my oven was going out on strike with all the cooking it did on the 24th. Lol. With a bit of determination & luck i managed to get the stars stacked & decorated.
