bits of this and that

Not a lot happening this last week and am finding it a bit hard to focus on stitching so I have been looking for other things to play with.
Today I was playing around with some 1/2 inch hexies that were left over from the last purse that I made and thought it would be a great idea to see if I could make a mini hexie pincushion.
Nothing ventured nothing gained as they say..
I have filled them with a bit of stuffing and walnut shells so I can use them to sharpen my needles.
I think they are quite cute.

 Two more blocks finished for my live laugh love quilt. These were finished a week ago.
I have been plodding along with this during the week, sewing the stepping stones for the top and bottom row that I added. I think I have enough flowers to make one more row and then I will have to think about planning the fillers to straighten the sides.

 Little houses have been built over the past week or so too.
Another 8 done. They are so enjoyable to make but I must think about putting them together soon....


Hope the weekend has been a good one for you
cheers for now
