Friday Night with Friends

It was great to join in with everyone last night for our monthly sew in. Many thanks to Cheryll for inviting us, last night and all through the year. You can see what everyone got up to here.
There was no time to sew during the day yesterday so I chose a small project for my evening by the fire.
Earlier in the week I made this little ornament as a sample to show my quilty friends who came for the afternoon.
They are 1 1/2" diamonds. It is double sided and I left the papers in to give it extra stability. I sent a picture to a friend and she sent back a picture of a hexagon wreath that she had seen on the internet (thank you Sue). So I thought that would be a nice project for my evening and here it is.
I used 1" hexagons and again it is double sided and I left the papers in. I think this would be better slightly smaller made with 3/4" hexies but I am very pleased with it as it is.
I shall be taking them with me to decorate the little cottage that we are renting for our Christmas trip.
Not sure when you will hear from me again as we have a busy week ahead but I shall check in again before Christmas.

Bag It entry

Just popping in with my final entry for Bag It 2017

Many thanks to Patty at Elm Street Quilts for organising this event.

You will remember this Open Wide bag that I made with the gorgeous Oriental Flowers fabric.

Well there was a square of the fabric left over which was just perfect for making another s.o.t.a.k handmade Essential Pouch which I put together yesterday afternoon.

So now my Open Wide bag has a travelling companion.

This Friday is FNwF - the link up is open here and many thanks to Cheryll.

Hope to see you there!
