Flowers

Not the real kind, but fabric ones!
 
 
I'm in a snail mail/round robin yahoo group and to celebrate our anniversary of the start of the group we have a swap each year.  This year it was a bookmark and some fabric.  I think 10 ladies took part and I have received about half of my fabric so far.
 
I decide to do hexagonal/english pieced flowers with mine.  I like to wash my fabric first, so here it is drying by the' hungry monster'...



Then I found a template pattern in one of Marnie's craft books.  The smaller one for the paper pieces and the larger for the fabric.



Her are some of the fabrics I've received so far...



Cut out and piecing...



And some of my 'flowers' made up.  I've done 9 so far and I'm eagerly awaiting the fabric from the rest of the ladies so I can make more...

The Hungry Monster

I'm so happy to have a wood heater at our new place.  And now we have something to feed him!
 



He has a choice of this....



Or this....
 
 That should keep him (and us) warm for awhile :o)



I also finished my 'rainbow blanket' I've been working on.  Now for another project....




And this morning the sunrise was so pretty.  The photos don't do it justice as it was so beautiful.  This one was taken about 7am...



And this one was taken about 10 minutes later...
 
 
 
I'm hopefully off to buy a washing machine today.  This washing clothes by hand is fun for awhile...but....
 
I hope you all have a blessed day!!  xx
