Little piles of goodness

Ready to add to my quilt project. I am aiming for a double bed sized quilt - but we'll see.

Rediscovering a 22 year old project.

This little piece of patchwork has been sitting at my parent's house - in their "abandoned crafts" cupboard - since I was 10. I remember Mum teaching me how to cut the paper hexagons out of her old magazines, and cutting the fabrics from old dresses, shirts, baby blankets, and other scraps of fabric. I started when I was 6 - meaning that this patchwork is now 22 years old. About time it was completed, I think! I have a large pile of perfect hexagon-sized bits of fabric - and intend to make a quilt for our spare room bed.

Hopefully it doesn't take me another 22 years to finish it.

Gearing up for warm weather

Today, I bought my very first ever Maxi Dress.

It is this one from Lilya. It has a lovely cross-straps back.

And that got me thinking about summer coming up sooner than I thought! I am so ready for warmth and being able to wear sandals!
