Momentary Lapse...

...well not so momentary actually... because Monday was a public holiday here in WA, I have been thinking that today is Tuesday... when it's Wednesday....

So that means it's hexy flower day!
Our little flower-making group is very small at the moment, would you like to join us? Over at 
Journey Of A Quilter, Karen has all the info you need... or maybe you are thinking about learning paper piecing, & hexagons are a popular way to start.

On Monday I had a big day of doing heaps of bits & pieces on the Pfaff..... & now I have a few projects that just need me to stitch the bind into place, and they will be finished...
both items are for the Birthday-Love Stash, (I'm so early Wendy!) the top item is a mug rug is for a friend who loves her gardening... the bottom item is secret for now, but I can at least reveal that I made it entirely from scraps in my box.
I made one other item which will feature here in the near future.
Sorry to be so secretive!!

I made a mess of the quilting for the spotty table topper, so I reverse-quilted (ie unpicked) & am much happier with the result... now I am stitching that bind into place too.

Hi Anthea,
I'm a bit muddled up too having had the long weekend. I kept looking at Tuesday's timetable all day today. Love your hexie's and quilting. Can't stop a good woman from doing her patchwork!!
Cheers, Anita.

Love your hexie. I am just not into paper piecing. Maybe one block a year. All your secret projects are looking good. You have been busy.
