Random crafting been happening here.... I finished my Friends with benefits swap gift now just to wait for the sending date and put a few goodies in with it.
I have been doing some more cross stitching and it is my goal to get at least one done each month to put away for gifting. I finished these two and Els has sent me two new lovely designs by Simone so I am looking forward to getting into them. I just need another trip to town to get some more linen. With holidays coming up that shouldn't be too much of a chore!

I think it is quite cute.
I have long been admiring fussy cut hexies made by Maria from Life on the block and Melody from House on the hill so when I look at fabrics lately I look for the possibility of fussy cutting hexies. I found some gorgeous Snugglepot and Cuddlepie fabric and couldn't resist it. Maria mades some cute fussy cuts flowers and thought she might like a piece as I had plenty for myself so we arranged a little swap. Maria sent me some lovely fabrics to fussy cut and of course I couldn't just put them aside so I prepped them last week and yesterday made them up. I had some hexagons ready to stitch into flowers from fabrics in my stash so they have made quite a good start on a new collection! I think there is another scrappy flower garden in the future......somebody stop me! An intervention may be in order...
Hope there is some crafting time in your weekend!
