Hexagon and a pouch!!

Okay, so I did paper piece some hexagon out of scraps left-over from cutting those little charm packs.
I decided to use them to make little pouches.
I'm going to sell these at my yard sale.

Hopefully they sell.
But if not, I do need some for myself, so no worries.
These are all made from stuff in my stash.

Gotta work!!

A few little bags....

So, I just couldn't sleep last night.
I decided to get up and make a few little bags.

These are perfect for a kids gym bag or to bring little extras when going out.
What do you think?

A bit of this and that.......

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a great day.
I know I haven't blogged in the last week.
I've been working night shifts, then I had company come visit, then more night shifts.

I've been tired!!

I haven't done any sewing.

But tonight, I did make a few mini charm packs from my modern scraps.
I cut my modern scraps with my 3 1/2 inch square die and my GO! Cutter.
I made 6 little packs of 40 squares.

I'm having a yard sale on Saturday, 
and I thought I would sell some of my scraps of fabric.

I might make a few more mini charm packs with my country and reproduction fabric.
I'm not sure yet.
It depends how I feel.

I'm destashing!!

Making room in my sewing area and also in the rest of the house too.
It's always nice to clear some stuff out.

Well, that's all for today.
I'm working 2 more night shifts before the weekend.
Hopefully, I'll be able to sew a bit more soon.

Some great mail and a wonderful wedding.

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.

This weekend I went to my youngest brother Pierre's wedding.
He married the beautiful Christa.

It was such a beautiful wedding.
We all had so much fun.
All my family attended and we danced until late in the night.
Congratulations Pierre and Christa!!!

I also received some wonderful mail today from Daisy Cottage Quilts.

I love this fabric and the pattern.
Can't wait to try it.
