This Caught My Eye

                                  

From wonderful Purl Soho comes the complete and free pattern to make this Ticking Stripe Wrap/Scarf .  I love the stripe of bright colour and I love how they write out their instructions.  Great detail in requirements, etc. so the guess work is nil.  And the best bit of all is that this is mostly stockinette stitch!

If you are thinking at all of a hand worked Christmas...

Making Hexies is all over the quilting world.  Those little hexagons that most people fashion with the EPP method are being sewn into all sorts of lovely projects and this one caught my eye.  This is a photo of Pamela's work from her blog Hokkaido Kudasai , Pamela is an American teaching English in Japan and is embracing all things Japanese particularly in her stitcheries.  Her blog is very interesting combining local photos and hand work.



I just love her little hexie Christmas ornaments, especially the fussy cut little motifs.  A lot of Christmas fabric lends itself to fussy cutting come to think of it.


Bee-utiful Quilt Along

 Each block features a bee or two and little inspirational sayings.

These blocks have been popping up around the web.  This is Pamela Morgan's Quilt-Along on the Moda BakeShop site and that link is Here for the free patterns to make these sweet blocks.
Pam's blog is Sweet Little Stitches and I love how she writes, not only about her quilting projects, but other topics as well.  Pam also generously shares tutorials and even videos of these to help us replicate her lovely work.  Check it out.
