Variety is the spice of life....


This weeks Blockheads block has lots of little pieces.  the finished block is 6 1/2"


Here are all the blocks so far - I don't know what the setting will be like but I am trying to get a mixture of colours in the bigger and smaller blocks....

I am using fabrics from my stash for this with some bits from the scrap baskets ….


ChooseDay sewing I did lots of machine buttonhole stitch.....


… and made 16 blocks with big daisies in them....


I am going to be using this cute hedgehog fabric I got from Michelle and a fat quarter pack of Eureka
with a bit of extra metreage for borders


… it's a cute pattern by Melly and Me....


When I was cleaning up I found a 'mug rug' kit which I think came with a magazine many moons ago.... it didn't take much to make it up and it's one less thing in the cupboard.


Then I got onto making up some needlecases with some arbitrary stitcheries that I had. 


A little page of wool in the centre is nice to needles...


There are a couple more I still have to stitch down

Today a surprise in the post.  Cheryll found a couple of pretty doilies and sent them - I do like a play with the doilies and these are nice and small so will be fun to make up into something.... maybe even more needle-cases, or special coasters/mugrugs?  Thanks Cheryll …...



Righto, Gotto Go ...…  I am going to peruse this lovely book to find a project that I can make with scraps on ChooseDays….. 


Has anybody else used this book to make something?

All your projects today look so nice and bright and fresh. The blockheads project is really coming along nicely. The hedgehogs will be super cute. I th mi we all have little projects from magazines. That would be a fun challenge - to finish one a month.
