MY NEW DISTRACTION


I haven't worked on my hexi-bets for a while but I think I finally have a plan.


After finishing a few bigger projects, it's been fun to make these little buckets. This time around I started with 9" squares so they could hold more.

This one is from the line S'more Love. Filled with a few baby items I will be ready for the next shower.


Road 15


Bobbins and Bits. Love this selvedge print



Speaking of distractions, we are one month away from the wedding of these two. (I was given permission to show one picture.)


Have a fabulous Tuesday !

Oh, what a sweet picture of the wedding couple! I know you'll be glad when that is done - such a lot of work!!! I like the idea of using that dark gray with your hexies - can't wait to see it all together :*) And your buckets are such a great idea - I have a few showers coming up....

What a romantic picture. I love how the couples nowadays are doing their photos. Ours was so stiff, so formal, but in some ways, I guess it suited us.

Good for you for whipping up some gifts to have tucked away in the closet for showers, etc. Great idea.

And I can't wait to see what your hexibets turn out to be. Clever things, those. . .
