A finish

Badger Cottage journal cover and Little Thimble Bag - Lynette Anderson designs

Well it took me a bit longer than I thought to get a new USB port, but here is my finished Badger Cottage journal cover.  I think it's such a cute pattern, I love the smoke coming out of the chimney and the heart on the door.  I was so inspired by meeting Lynette that I joined her Project Club and she shared her Little Thimble Bag pattern which I made above.  It's so cute and, yes, I do have my thimble safely stored in it!  And I have started sewing the 3/4" hexagons together to make the Badger Cottage pencil case.  After feeling like the Waikato was awash with rain we have had about four days of glorious sunshine.  It is amazing how everything feels different when the sun is shining.  Today is another lovely day so this is just a quick post, I must get onto my washing and other Saturday chores, Wendy xx

  5. It's a beautiful finish Wendy. Your stitching is so neat. I have never liked Suffolk puffs until I saw your little ones, they look great on this project. I think I have caught the hexie bug too, they look so appealing.
