A Little Easter Sewing...

Gosh, it feels like ages since I have had a good blog-read & done a post, but of course I have still been sewing & stitching...

 



Having used some of my cute Easter fabric to make the little bags, I thought a bigger project or two was in order...
 The ideas for this runner came from HERE

 




Something a little less 'festive' was in order for our dining table. The runner is 34cm x 1m.
There is no link for this one, I made it up as I went along!










 I gave the border a little yellow peeper, to frame the print.







I have also been experimenting with a hexagon project...
...it's a pincushion, but won't be staying with me for long, I hope the new owner will like it, visible stitching & all! This is my March make for the Birthday-Love Stash.

So it's Friday Night Sew-In this evening... well I have a few hours today - alone! - so I am going to make a start on a couple of things, then spend the evening on the sofa doing some more... Pop over HERE to link up and be part of the sewing party!

~Happy Friday Everyone~
