It's 'Piece Yourself Together' time again

Many thanks to Anthea for organising the link - do go and see what everyone is making and link up yourself if you are working on some EPP. The link up is here

First up are my swap hexies for the month which are all winging their way to Australia this month.

And just look what arrived in the post for me yesterday!

Not only my swap hexies for this month but the most darling little key fob made from 1/4" hexies! Real live ones, in the flesh! They are so tiny, I just can't imagine how anyone can make them that small.

No actual EPP going on here other than that but I have received more supplies of grey fabric for my Hexathon quilt. So I have now pinned the pieced panel on to it ready to stitch down, and  I have cut away the excess fabric from the back. This means that I have freed up some fabric to use in the piecing of the borders. The papers are all cut from freezer paper so now I just need to get busy with the iron.

Lots more going on here but I shall leave that for another post.

I am also linking up with Heather's Needlework Tuesday here

Have a great week.


  1. I love your fussy cutting on the black flower. How cute is that wee hexie key fob.

  2. Sweet hexies. Super sweet key chain. I'm no sure I'd even attempt such tiny hexies!

  3. the fussy cutting certainly makes those flowers stand out. Wonderful work as always.

    Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

  4. Charming indeed. And good to see progress being made!

  5. Lovely hexies Lin :-) The key fob is tooo cute!

  6. Hi,
    Beautiful hexies, the key fob is really cute.
    Have a great day!

  7. Great fussy cutting Lin! Excellent idea for a key fob! It's just too cute, and sooooo my type of project! Maybe one day I might finish the tiny hexies I started stitching for The Splendid Sampler! I love them, and there probably isn't much to do to finish the block ..... now I wonder where I put them ......
