Colourful, floral, hexie, Out of the Box Friday + a felt pincushion too.

 This week's Colourful Friday with Robyn of Daisy Quilts could have been chosen with me in mind because I love hexagon flowers.  Here are just a few of my favourites.
Of course I've got to include my hexie flowers for my Confetti Quilt

This one came from a wonderful blog Attic 24.  Makes me want to learn crochet so much.

 I couldn't resist buying this wonderful hexagon fabric
Huge thanks to Robyn for organising Colourful Friday for us every couple of weeks.

Today is also Floral Friday with Bronwyn at Korumburra Quilting. A favourite plant in my garden is the white potato creeper.  It blooms virtually all year around and is another plant that would have been grown in my grandma's garden.  I love the simple charm of these easily grown old fashioned plants.  Bronwyn is a talented gardener and has some wonderful news about Lady Eva's photo, so its always fun to visit her.

  I've not had a lot of time for sewing in the last couple of days but I did make Block 4 of  
 Out of the Box with Dawn and Vicki.  This month I sewed Vicki's block as it featured cups of tea - one of my very favourite things.

And the postie arrived with  a parcel containing this

as part of Fiona's Felt Pincushion Swap at BubzRugz.  I am incredibly lucky as Dianne, who worked on it first included the most wonderful present.  Some of her Providence official tartan - Nova Scotia tartan - it is definitely going into my next wool project.  I love it, many thanks to  Dianne.  Take a close look at her beautiful stitching on Laura's base.  I'm sure Laura will be thrilled.

This is a great swap.


  1. I just love your hexies! Tracee xx

  2. Your hexies are beautiful. You certainly have been busy. I think your confetti quilt is going to be a stunner.Your potato creeper is so pretty too.

  3. I am not a big fan of hexies but I love the crochet and you have got your out of the box done quick smart. It looks great. The pincushions are certainly coming along. The teacup is very cute. Lots in your post today :)

  4. I am beginning to think my heart is hexagon shaped because I love the shape. I adore your fussy cutting confetti hexagons. Lovely show and tell.

  5. The hexies are just wonderful and I especially like one of the confetti hexies, it is amazing.

    The BOM block is great, I'm wishing I'd taken part in it now.

  18. Hi Melody. My busy month has finally come to an end and I am enjoying spending the time looking around at blogs and catching up on all the posts I have missed. It is great to see all your hexie flowers and I love the way your Out Of The box embroideries are turning out. And the felt pincushion is just gorgeous. I'm looking forward to joining in the Teddy Bear's picnic again. Thanks again for the links to the great freebies.
