Hexie Pouch

Just for fun, a colorful, scrappy pouch made by English paper piecing hexagons together:

Lined with a bright, happy blue to pop against the tangerine zipper, a “robot in love” zipper pull …

and a flat bottom so it can stand on its own.

Because functional starts with “fun”.

Spider Jewelry

I haven’t posted for a while because I’m busy with tedious little projects around the house, mostly painting.  With limited time, I’m working bit by bit and there isn’t much to share.  So I thought I’d leave you something pretty to look at — glowing dewdrops collected by a crafty little spider on my back porch.

She can do magic with her “use what you have” lifestyle, can’t she?

Quilt Ingredients

Soothing gray Kona cottons (Ash, Charcoal and Medium Grey with Coal spread out underneath), a bright, spicy binding fabric and loads of tasty little picture windows to applique … this one’s going to be sweet!  Even though I pre-cut the circles, this project will probably be tucked away for a while.  It looks like it will be a lot of fun though, so I’m looking forward to being able to get back to it.  I love the quiet grays mixed with bright colors.

And just because he’s cute, here’s my cat stalking my coffee:

Have a great weekend!

A bottle cover ( fabric cut 6″x15″, sewn with a 1/4″ seam will fit an American Honey bottle perfectly!):

A wordy book cover:

And a handsome door greeter:

If you want more details on any of these,  let me know.  I guess any of these actually could be a blog post, I’ve just neglected them!
