Inspired by Sue

My lovely friend Sue from I Purr Furr To Craft has a philosophy where crafters make

  • Something for themselves
  • Something for the present box
  • Something for charity
So that's another pledge for 2014.  I'm going to do this each month before I do anything else.  I'm continuing to make the something for me by working on my Stitching Around the Block project.  Last night I made this sweet little hexie flower to add to round 4.  
I'm hoping to make a couple more at today's Sit and Sew at NOTYQ.  The darling pin cushion was made for my by Anna (no blog) as a swap.  Isn't it adorable?

Do you love hexies as much as me?  Yes!  Then it's time for some Hexie Pillow Cases.
You can find the tutorial HERE at fabulous A Spoonful of Sugar.  Huge thanks to Lisa and Sarah for all they so generously share with us.
Do you subscribe to the Hawthorne Threads newsletter?  You can do it HERE.
Every week they have a great giveaway for their subscribers.  This is what they are giving away this week.
Delightful Michelle over at The Raspberry Rabbits has a giveaway where you can win some delightful bunny scissors.

Sweet Fee at Mum's Cupboard is sharing a delightful Stitch-a-long with us with free patterns too.  Visit her HERE to find out more.
When I first starting blogging one of the first people to make me feel really really welcome was lovely Robyn from Daisy Quilts.  She's now got an ETSY shop.

  1. what a wonderful idea Mel,you are always so thoughtful,have a wonderful day my friend.xx

  2. What a wonderful idea! I'm always torn because there's only so much time but with that method you could cover all bases. I also need to put hexies on my list and thank you for the link to the pillowcase hexies. But first I have to make the hexie travel kit for sure. Happy New Year and what a great and crafty year it will be..I hope.
