WIPs Wednesday!

It's been some time since I wrote a 

But I have a little to show-

hand sewing my hexies...

I'm working through the purple/blue/green colours  

of the rainbow at the moment!

And the baby quilt is progressing...

Mini charms of "Posy" on a light sage green background

Bordered with a dragonfly print 

and a 'tile' print border

I found the perfect backing...

"Bella" by Lotta Jansdotter, 

for the bargain price of $7.50 a metre 

at Darn Cheap Fabrics!

With some gingham binding being prepared!

I am aiming for a weekend finish for this.

Finally a sneak peak of the 

+ and x blocks for Carla!

Oh dear, they are in a mess, aren't they?

There is a new one or two in there somewhere!

What are you working on at the moment?

I'd love to know!

Happy sewing!
