My life.:)

As i was posting yesterday's blog about my hexies it came to me that they are all i seem to blog about lately. You could be forgiven if you thought that was all i’ve been doing. :) So today i set myself a task of taking photo’s of things i’ve been doing & a flower that has bloomed for me in my pot plants.Picture 005
I’ve been “growing” ginger beer plants. This is my 2nd batch. The first batch will be ready to drink this weekend.

My blood lily has flowered. I think the last time was maybe 2 years ago.

This lovely stitchery by Kaaren. Made a few of these for gifts. Now to add the borders. :)Picture 013 I started these 3 lovely heart stitcheries by Rosalie Quinlan last year but ran out of time before Christmas. Oh well at least they’ll be ready for this Christmas. :)

I wish people wouldn’t play with the settings on the camera. Grrrr

These stitcheries are from Ruby’s Sewing Nest pattern by Kathy Schmitz.

Somehow i missed making clamshells for the last 2 months. I sat down one day recently & made this pile up. Now i have enough made up to finally start the quilt. Yay.
So that’s what i have been doing besides making hexies & reading. :)

Hi Jeanette,
Dont know how I found you but I am glad I dropped by. Has your ginger beer been successful? Any secrets you would share on making it. I have been searching for ages for a recipe to make some for my DH. Fun blog will drop by again.

Well Hello Jeanette! I am so glad you commented on my giveaway so I could find your awesome blog! I love it!! I just signed up to Follow too! Love the stitcheries! The Hexie flowers are far too cute! I am a terrible photographer so I feel your pain. I just want to point and shoot! Take care!

You certainly have been busy. The clamshells look small. What size are they?

I know what you mean. I'm either posting hexies or colourful friday, which I love both!
Your stitcheries are lovely!
