The answer to a UFO!


Do you reminder a while ago I blogged about some random half-finished amigurumi bits. They looked like this…


Well I finished it, or rather him…


Isn’t he great.  I found this fabulous pattern on the internet, search for Amigurumi Elmo.  I believe there was a cookie monster to go with him.

One UFO down, plenty more to go.



Chester interrupts more fabric bundles


I have been rather absent recently due to a broken finger, which has been rather more awkward than I first anticipated.  The one thing it hasn’t stopped me doing is buying more fabric, which I was going to taken a photo of and then this happened….


It’s been a while since my “puppy” has appeared, so I indulged him with his snooty “I’m not being naughty” face.


Then his best attempt at “I love you Mummy” face.

Then finally what I like to call his “fraggle” face (as it reminds me of Fraggle Rock)


It’s the nose I think.  Bless him.

Anyway, I did then get the fabric in…


I can’t wait to do something with them or rather be able to.

Thanks for stopping by.



Hexagon Pot Pourri Sachet


I have been playing with my selection of teeny tiny pieces of assorted fabric and playing with hexagon paper piecing, which I now love.  I wanted to make a gift for a friend, who was having a party and thought a little sachet would be the ideal gift and as I have now given her the gift I can now share a photo.


It’s double sided…


I put rose and lavender inside as I know she has trouble sleeping.

She was very pleased and I am now addicted to hand stitching.



Ooops. Have just bought something else.


It all started with a cup of tea and the thought that I would just spend five minutes looking at inspiration as to what to do with my patchwork hexagons….little did I know you could do so much.  And then I found this adorable hippo and just had to buy the pattern.  I strongly suggest you take a look.

Now I realise this is a crochet pattern and not patchwork, but what the heck I thought, lets start that as well.  So, time to find my crochet hook….I know its here somewhere.



Lovely fabric parcel received


I really shouldn’t start any new projects until clearing some old ones first, especially as I don’t seem to have that much time on my hands, but when my lovely little parcel of fabric pieces arrived I just cant stop daydreaming about what I want to do with them.

Perhaps, I should have thought about that before I bought them but you know what its like when you see something pretty, just have to buy it and think later.

So here it is…


Watch this space…. I know it will involve hexagons.
