Teeny weeny things.

 The tiny bug has bitten. :) :). I saw a post on IG yesterday about making diamond hexies with 3/8th" hexies. Hmm i have some of those i might make on up using my pile of repro scraps & then i had another thought. I should get the 1/4" hexies out as well. After all that is what i've been saving all the very small repro fabrics for.


first ones made i then proceeded to make a few more. lol
I really didn't need to start any new projects but there you have it, the tiny bug has well & truly bitten.

#9 Chookshed Stitchers Challenge

 Spotting a post from Deana I looked to see if it was about the number for April. Yes it was so I checked my list. Hmm I really hope those blocks are in the same crate as last months.

Yes they were. :) This month I need to make something from crazy patch blocks that were made in swap back in 2011.

Not sure yet what to make from them. 

Happy Stitching,
