Finally some Me time!

Yes that is how it felt yesterday.
The Christmas Tree and all the decorations are away for another year
and the house was clean....ahhhhh  :O)

I started by finishing off my 14th stitched Hexie for my 
"Best Friends Forever BOM"

Then went and grabbed out the rest of the project only to find more Hexies 
that I haven't framed yet.

So I started cutting the backing Hexagons for the remainder of the quilt and then cut the wadding needed from my wadding scraps when I got a little distracted by Lily's new portable DVD player that she got for Christmas just laying on the floor.  Normally she is really good and puts stuff away but she has nowhere for it to go so I decided that it needed a bag.

I called Lily and let her go through my Mini Charm packs and pick a favorite 
and with that as my inspiration off I went.

I am quite pleased with the result as in just under 2 hours Lily has a new Bag to keep her DVD player,
charger, headphones and even a few DVD's when traveling in.  Not a bad effort, especially considering I wasn't following a pattern. I just "winged it".  Best bit, Lily LOVES it.

Speaking of my Miss Lily.  
Do you like her new bracelet?

Looks like I can also add "Rainbow Looming" to my repertoire.

Hope you have the chance to do something that you enjoy today.

  10. Definitely enjoying some stitching now that Christmas is over. Great bag....why don't things come with bags/cases anymore?

  11. I still really love these hexies. I think I will add it to my ever growing list. I adore Lily's bag. It looks wonderful, no wonder she loves it. I did some stitching today also and it felt wonderful.

  12. Your hexagons are looking wonderful. Love Lily's new bag. Very clever of you!

  13. Love the bag Sharon, great idea. I have a mini charm pack that I started to sew together but couldn't work out what to do with it, do now. Thanks for sharing

  14. Love the bag you made and Lily's bracelet. I am in awe of 14 hexagons I have sewn 7 and have not backed any of them yet.

  15. The bag is lovely and I'm really enjoying seeing your hexies come together. I gave in and bought the patterns a few months ago and the final fabrics arrived this morning! You are such a bad influence!
