when in doubt.....

Make hexagons!!
But not before making a little progress on Block 8 of Down in the garden.  A little is better than none.


this week I couldn't focus on anything in particular so pulled out a stash of prepared hexies.  These flowers are multiplying nicely..
I picked up some novelty fabrics from Spotlight a little while ago especially to add to my collection of novelty flowers.
love these cheeky monkeys!



border filler for Park Avenue flower quilt

If anyone has some novelty fabrics in their stash and would like to swap some I have some of the woodland people, sock monkeys and racing car fabrics that I would be happy to swap. Just let me know..
Hope you find some crafting time on the weekend!
cheers
