I love blanket stitch; such a simple thing, but creates such a lovely effect.
A patchwork club challenge - to make something using hexagons:

Another challenge for myself: A class for Suffolk Puffs - finding as many uses for them as possible. Some of the others have already been given as presents though.

Two in a Day

Two posts in a day - unheard of!!! Just wanted to say, if there is anyone out there of course and I am beginning to think not, pop over to Tracey's this week - she is having a session on tips over the next few days - so far they have been really handy ones and made me realise that my iron is actually filthy!! Housekeeping has never been my strong point! Go and have a look, you might learn something new.


I have long been a fan of Jane Brocket. I made my mother buy me her wonderful book two years ago and I am always dipping into it, just checking out the pictures - wonderful colours. I saw this idea in there, and amazingly enough I had just the right shaped vase for the job. It makes me smile every time I see it - sad isn't it, I am so easily pleased.
