My busy days.

Yesterday i was determined to finish the Christmas Wishes BOM from last year. I was managing to keep up with Gail’s  posting each month but towards the end i got behind. :( At the start of this year i completed the stitcheries & then put it all together & that’s the way it stayed until now.

I needed to wash the hanging but today turned out to be rainy unfortunately so it’s hanging here wet. Hopefully the hanging will dry out quickly.

Of course being Wednesday i also have my hexagon update. Didn’t think i was going to get any done this week but i squeezed them in. Lol. Above are the 1” hexagons.

3 x 1/2” hexagons. I didn’t set out to make the checked one turn out like it did. Just luck when i saw it after i sewed it together. :)  The red one is out of Christmas fabric.

The baby 1/4” one.
Recently in mentioned about visiting Bronwyn’s Red Brolly shop and that i was waiting eagerly for my goodies to arrive. Monday was the day they arrived. :)

Plus i visited Joy to buy one of her new patterns & the lovely Joy sent me a copy of her Tabletopper  pattern as well. Isn’t she sweet? Thankyou Joy.
Lastly i succumbed to joining in the stitch-a-long for next year. This is what we’ll be stitching:
