Jan Paper Piecing

Here is my first attempt at paper piecing. I found this on the Craftsy site. I had hoped to link up but that won't happen until tomorrow when I have time to play.

Lucky me

I have received the loveliest of goodies from Daisies and New Beginnings.
The material is so pretty, pink flowered Laura Ashley, dark pink with orange spots and Cheeky Checks by by Jane Sassaman.
An adorable needle case to make.  I've earmarked that to take to Northumberland to sew whilst looking at the sea.
A gorgeous pink Caroline Jacques purse/clutch.
I hope to take a photo tomorrow, it was too overcast, snowing, this afternoon.
I'll try and remember to take a photo of my latest hexy as well.

Saturday Afternoon

Having succumbed to a nasty throat infection on Wednesday, I am now suffering, but not quietly, with blocked sinuses and earache.
I hope to do a little sewing later, yet another hexagon.  Pink- purple this time.
Here hopefully are two more hexagons and Ella's new tote.

More Hexagons

It was lovely to see the sun on my walk today, after the grotty, damp weather of late.
Here hopefully are the two hexagons I failed to upload a couple of posts ago. There is also an orange-yellow    hexagon to be finished tonight or tomorrow.
Yesterday I made a simple tote for my niece, it is for her knitting.  I will try and take a photo on Sunday before I post it.
My next blog goal is to be able to add 'buttons' to my sidebar.
I also need to take better photos!!
So much to learn.

Happy New Year

I've not much to show for the last 12 months, the few things I have made I've given away before taking photos.
Here are some of my hopes for 2013,
Frequent, vaguely interesting, blog posts.
Progress reports on projects.
Finish Temecula 12 days of Christmas mini quilt.
Start Tetris quilt.
Finish dust cover for my sewing machine.
Make a thread catcher.
Practice FMQ on mug rugs.
Try paper piecing.
Learn more about blogging.
