Hexie Pieced Pot Holder





I love to keep my hands busy all the time..especially when I am watching the telly. 

This is Blue Wrens Nest  by Cinderberry Stitches.





Do you see those hexagons?

I pieced the hexagons and appliqued the Blue Wren Nest . Then made it into a pot holder . Made a pair, actually. The one on the right is the reverse side.


My sister has been under the weather lately. So this is for her to cheer her up !


luv ya

More Hexie Caddy Pincushions

I’m so happy to see more of my Hexie Caddy Pincushions appearing in Blogville!

I think Marjorie will be making a smaller one.


But Shannon of Pieceful Kwilter knew it was going to be big. So she used a 1.5” hexie instead of 2”. Yes, you can make it any size you like by changing the size of the hexagon.

Lastly,  Barbara made this . 
If you  have made any Hexie Caddy Pincushion, please send me your pics or links . I love to ‘show-off’ all your beautiful creations!


Graciela of  Hilitos de Colores  made my Hexagon Tote-Along Pouch. She even made a tutorial on how she made the pouch…in Spanish!
Muchas Gracias Graciela!

Thank you ladies for sharing your creations with me.


Happy Stitching !!!

…very slow mail ! It took two weeks to reach me. And when it finally did, it’s all worth the wait.
It’s the win I got from Joy.

Have you seen such loveliness?!
A Moda  Charm Pack!!!

I think I’ll be feasting my eyes on these pretties before I want to think of what to make with them!

Thanks so much Joy!

Catching Up…

I’ve been so busy with …house chores, what else! 

cleanhouse Saw this cute graphic during my ritual blog hopping mornings. Well, I don’t want my computer to be broken before my house can be clean !


I was also busy playing catch…catching up with my BOMs. But the fact that more generous bloggers are dishing out free BOMs are not helping much !

imageFiona of Mothers Cupboard is offering  "Flowers of Love" a 10 part BOM. Make sure you visit her every first of the month. I’ve already printed the first one, ready to stitch!

That’s my WIP ( Work in Progress) which may explain my MIA (Missing in Action) from link parties .


My morning ritual of blog hopping  is a must. I love to see what everyone has been up to! If you have noticed, my blogroll of favourite places I visit is getting longer..and longer !
But what can be more fun than having peeps out there making use of my tutorials!

Vreeni of OOPS-LAH made my Hexie Caddy Pincushion.  Love the  colour combination.

image  Sylvie of Maevy’s Corner also made one from my tutorial. Isn’t it a beauty?! Gorgeous fabric!

And, Anita V of  Trying To Quilt  made my Hexagon Tote-Along Pouch with her daughter!  No more trying Anita, you’re already there! It’s very well made.


Now , back to house chores and more stitching !!!
Please mail me your pics if you have made something from any of my tutorials. Thanks bunch!

Happy Stitching !!!
