Two New Handwork Projects

I started two new little projects this weekend and all the blame credit goes to the two bloggers who inspired me.

Earlier this week, Gail Pan shared a sweet stitchery pattern, Welcome Spring, that I found irresistable. Click over to see the blue pillow and red wallhanging she made from the design and download the free pattern.  It's a quick bit of stitching, I expect to finish this tonight.

A New Little Stitchery Project

My plan is to feature it in a small pillow with some Springy blue and yellow print fabrics.

New ToolsA couple days ago on her blog, Angie mentioned picking up a Fiskar's hexagon punch at half price ... and I thought that was such a good idea, I bought two.

I quickly opened the smaller one and repurposed some junk mail.

My yellow scrap bin was sitting on the worktable–yes, I am finally getting around to making some rainbow scrap challenge blocks–so I grabbed some small scraps and made a sample for an idea for a new small quilt idea.

I will be slow stitching away later today on these and am joining Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching list with this post.

Wonder how long before the quilting supply world catches onto these punches.

Thanks for the link to Gail's blog! Maybe stitching this little block will help feel like it is getting her sooner.

I have one of those hexagon hole punchers but have not started an EPP project yet...

Nice spring stitching!

Wow! I have never seen anything like that punch before! I might just have to get me one! No! I really don't need to have another project.....I really don't!
