Time to finish or repurpose some UFO's, so I can start the New Year guilt free on some new projects...
I just hate having a couple of blocks around that don't ever look like they are going to amount to much else than a couple of blocks...
These two Mug Mats blocks started out as raw edge applique drunkards path blocks for a quilt....that is as far as I got with that idea...
...so I've turned the blocks into Mug Mats fund raisers......♥
Then there are three hexie diamonds, that don't look like ever being much more than just these three...but don't they look lovely placed like this...oh dear, my heart says...I love these!
...They started off this big....so I removed the end hexies to make them a little more the size I wanted.....
...and will applique them to a background and make place mats ...for me this time..
I don't think three will be enough...do you ?....♥
Here's a close up of my hand-quilted Hexie / Dresden table topper I made a couple of years ago...I love this one.
DD found this Vintage Hexie cake tin at a garage sale...thought I might like it, all for just a few dollars....she knows me well!
Can you see "Anticipation" on the tin, and the look on the girls faces....."no alcohol" is also written on the tin...I wonder how good it tasted...oh, and made in England.
For me it's anticipation of what's next!
Another new week closer to Christmas.....and officially summer here for us...so far lovely mild weather, but I know it will heat up as the days go on.
Have a lovely week....♥
