Hello everyone, hope that you are all having a good weekend. It is raining again in lovely Marsden but as my sister and her cute dog are here for the weekend we have been out in it enjoying the beautiful countryside. The moors are amazing at the moment, all purple and it is great to be able to walk that far again after the mobility problems earlier in the year.
Not much has been going on craft wise, I have some progress on the Christmas ornaments and embroidery but nothing to show yet. However I can show you another cute little basket, this one made as a present for my cousin’s daughter. I made the smallest size of the Friends of the One Hour basket and filled it full of hair clips and she really loved it.
As I mentioned in my previous posts I was very good at the Quilt Festival and only bought a little bit more stash 🙂 Firstly these gorgeous little mini charm packs, I am going to be going on some more bag making courses in the autumn so thought they would be great for that.
Charise has also got a great zipper pouch tutorial on her blog which make use of these so might try that, look how cute the finished result is.
I also had to have some more Liberty from Alice Caroline’s fab scrap bin. Thought they would look lovely with scrap linen and have recently come across this lovely hexi idea from Pinterest from Lola Rose Patchwork.
I have also been acquiring more cute vintage text and sewing related prints from Simply Solids over the last couple of visits. Apologies but I have no idea of the fabric names or details of the ranges, these are earmarked for baskets or sewing related gifts. I particularly love the one with all the quilt block patterns on.
Well off to make brunch now before we go for another walk, my very energetic sister has just been for a 5K run but we will be doing something a little less strenuous as my knees can’t cope with fast speed!
Have a nice rest of the weekend and week ahead, take care and thanks for visiting.

I agree, a very virtuous outing, especially as you have plans for most of it!
Hello. I just seen your beautiful hexagon star patches. Are you selling a pattern for these. I would be very interested in obtain one together with the instructions. I’ve been stuck in a mood where nothing has captured my mind until I saw these on Pintress.
Hello Hilary, thanks for visiting and your comment. These are not my design, I found them on Pinterest myself and there is a link to where I found them in the post above.
