A weekend sewing

As you can see below Mum had a very productive sewing weekend (even more so than she showed which I am sure she will post about soon).  I did also actually, I spent most of the weekend sewing in the end.  Mum is much more focused than me (and has far less projects on the go).  I flitted between about three projects, though the ultimate goal was to finish a project by the end of the weekend.

I joined in with Friday Night With Friends (though am super slack and am including my results in this post), in which I sewed some hexagons, laid them out and started to sew some together.  Then I decided to have a little organise of my sewing things and I bagged all my projects that have yet to be started, but I have all of the fabric etc for.

Then on Saturday I sewed some more hexagons together, did a tiny bit of stitchery on one project.  Then by the evening I figured I wasn't going to have any projects finished that I had what is a girl to do but to start another one.  I had a little needle roll kit in my friday nights organised pile. So I got that out and by Sunday night it was nearly finished (the only reason it isn't is because the kit didn't have enough thread and I didn't have one to match so I have to go and buy some).  There is only a tiny bit of blanket stitch to go.

After I ran out of thread I switched to the last project, again sewing more hexagons together but for a different bag :).

Hope you all have a lovely week!
Happy Sewing,


  1. Your hexagon bag is going to be ever so pretty. The colours look gorgeous all laid out. I really love your little needle book. You really are naughty starting another project though. Didn't your mother ever teach you to finish one thing before you start another! :o) It's good to see you doing some more on your Anni Downs bag. I can't wait to see it finished. It'll look quite different to mine.
