I have fallen in love with sewing hexagons, I don't think I would say I am now going to make a quilt though. They are fun to sew together and I found them to be quite addictive. I am sewing flowers and using them to decorate small quilts. I have been doing two sizes, and I have been using up heaps of my scraps which is great.
Here is one I have sewn onto a little quilt. I have been hand quilting which I quite enjoy doing.
My little and big flowers
I keep all my sewing bits in a tin so I can take them with me if I need to. Ruby fell asleep one day in the car so I parked the car near the sea and sewed a few hexi's.
This is my other little shelf I painted, I picked this one up for $2 at an op shop. For this one I used some vintage wallpaper. The shelves are very small so I can only fit little things in there.
And finally, this is Ruby's bowl after her dinner last night. Anyone who has a fussy eater will know how frustrating dinner time can be when trying to feed a fussy 2 year old. Last night we had a chilli and Ruby's had no chilli and she had it with rice. Chris and I were so surprised that she ate it all, that I had to take a photo of the empty bowl.
