The sun has been shining here and I'm still on my quest to find nice little hand sewing projects for when I have the chance to enjoy the weather. After getting through 3/4 of my cross stitch it was time to move on to paper pieced hexagons. I think I'm going to turn these into a wide cushion for my bed once I have enough. The fabrics are mostly left over bits from the first quilt that I ever finished, which sits on the bottom of the bed.
I was just chucking all of the bits in a little bag to start with but I was worried about the paper getting scrunched and losing things so I needed a little a case for them. I really wanted to use some of my new stamp fabric so I made a little envelope needle book style holder to keep everything together. It's big enough to slide a small embroidery hoop in the pocket or the hexagons but small enough to just slip in my bag.
I had planned to do some embroidery on the address label but its been so long since I've finished anything that I just wanted to put it all together and get it done. Maybe I'll add a label patch onto it later.
It even had a test outing to Falmouth - it works.
