Traveling patches

A few days ago Crazymom wanted to know how we were doing with our make-one-a-day 9 patch challenge. Well, so far, I have 22 made! Not bad, eh!

But that will be my tally for a while as I’m off tomorrow to visit family.

What will I be taking for hand work?

A little bit of this …. Hexagons of Hope, which need to be finished and sent off by June 15. I will be making a few pincushions and enclosing thread in my zippy bags. Those thimbles will be going too. BTW …. these thimbles are fantastic for sewing. They are not rigid and are pleasant and easy to wear. No, Ashes …. they are too small for you!
And a little bit of appliqué.

And that is it, my friends, for one week!
Have a great week!
