Little Hexie needle Caddy

 For our FHFS hexie swap i thought i would have a practice run as i havent had a lot to do with hexies before.
 So my practice run was this gorgeous pattern which is a lovely needle caddy
 Love it in French General fabrics,and i am pleased with how it turned out.
 It was a free download when i got it ,but i went back to get you guys the link and now you buy it through Esty.
 So if anyone is interested in getting the pattern which is by sewingroomsecrets here is the link
I am busy packing as i have an early start tomorrow,i need to be at the train station by 7am Brisbane here i come,lol.
Hope you all have a wonderful day

Lets Book it


 I am joining up with Sharon and friends for Lets Book it

Chez and i last year worked out that we will do Lets book it with our Nancy Halvorsen books as we both had a few and hadnt really used them.
 So out of Nancy's book Jingle all the way we choose to do the Fa La La La wall hanging or cushion.
 This is as far as i got yesterday,so i hope to have it finished soon as we have another project picked for next month.
Thankyou Sharon for hosting,its a great way to get projects done.
 Hubby picked our first harvest of apples off our apple trees,so next week when i get back from baby sitting i will be stewing and freezing these,which reminds me i have corn to freeze as well .
I am babysitting sunday and Monday as DD2 is flying to Sydney with her team for some SES training,then Thursday i fly out to Brisbane for my first time to catch up with lots of blogging and FB buddies old and new,so it will be a busy week coming up.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend .
