My new design

 Good Morning, Today I am very proud to share with you my newest design, this project is featured in this months Homespun magazine.
 Let me introduce you to "Boy Toys" A  sweet hexagon baby quilt with a few little stitcheries. This was such a fun design to make. I love doing stitcheries and hexagons, its an easy portable project you can throw in your bag and work on any time you have a few spare moments.
 I hope you like it.
 As a designer nothing makes me happier than seeing my designs on the pages of a magazine. Knowing many people will be looking at it and hopefully choosing fabrics from their stash to make their own version.
Something else I whipped up recently was this custom cushion for a man I work with, he wanted me to make a cushion for his daughter with her name on it, all the directions he gave me were bright colours, so this is what I came up with. I'm so happy how it turned out. I took it to work and gave it to my colleague and then the next day his very happy daughter came in to thank me. I do love making things for people to enjoy.

I'm spending the day with a few friends for a stitching session so I had better get organised, have a wonderful Sunday and thankyou for stopping by.
