February Seam Ripper from Quiet Play

Here is my February paper pieced block. A lot trickier, with tiny pieces, including metallic fabric for the shiny  bits. I've cropped the photo, as the paper backing stops the block from lying flat.
I need to start these earlier in the month, they are more time consuming than I thought but also more enjoyable.

Garden Beauties Jan/Feb

Here are the first two blocks of Garden Beauties from The Quilt Pattern Magazine. I was able to make these thanks to Archie the Wonder Dog,  I won some pretty fabric and this is just a little piece of it.
I did manage to trim the leaves and stalk block too small and had to make another.
My next block for Get your hex on has arrived, I'm not sure yet what I'm planning.
I haven't started Feb's, And Sew On's, paper pieced block, it looks more challenging than Jan's block.

Get your hex on

Here is my heart for Stacey, I just need to attach it to the block, can I find my white cotton thread? No!
The best laid schemes o' mice and men......
I'm off to hunt thread, not so exciting as a snark!

A couple of finishes

The hexagon mug rug is for a swap, I hope my partner likes my first finished mug rug. There is another, that I thought wasn't good enough to send, that I will finish for me.

The hexagon is my last until I cut a new batch. The colours are not true, it is much brighter.
