The glue pen I mentioned certainly has worked wonders even with much smaller hexies .
These are other retro prints I could not resist
I have a few gifts to make for babies due in the next few months.
I don't know what the sex of the babies so I am well prepared now.
And other things.....
A morning with DH and Dextie spent on the beach...then ice creams on the bench and back home to more sewing ......simple things, this was last Wednesday ..
New Quay....the sea was so blue ..
Wet pupster with a sandy nose,
we met a couple who used to breed Dally's
from their Dalmatians. they told
our boy was very handsome
beautiful amber eyes
a great sign of a good breeding
if their eyes are so clear...
and his stance so well formed (?) apparently..
we wouldn't change him. for anything
but nice to confirm what a handsome boy we have
by someone we just met..
who have some knowledge of the breed.
This carried on and off for 4 hours ..it was so chilly the
heating was on most of the morning and early afternoon
and then back on at tea time!
Earlier in the week I noticed a animal transporter leave the farm next to us with calves that had been born since we arrived here two years ago...little calves the children had named and for a few minutes I felt sad seeing them go...I wandered home ...deep in thought as I do on the odd occasion . My knee seems to have improved a bit, I have done a bit of driving the last week since my car was fixed . As
my car is manuel I wonder whether that exercise has helped? So I have been for the odd wander otherwise the temptation to sit and stick hexies would if I let it take over my day! Anyway I arrived
home and what a beautiful sight and sound greeted me..... New baby calves, can't be very old, with their mothers and "aunty" who I think must be pregnant too
And their names "blue" and "little pink flowers". Named by you know who!
I haven't done any gardening yet...I should I know but just have not been "in the mood"
Every pot needs weeding and the soil topping up ....maybe next week...... But with every day hail and sleet I am in no rush!
Both kiddies off school for the last few days , poorly. ....so not much sewing getting done..just lots of cuddles, sympathy and maid duties!
I found a free printable sheet for 3/4 inch hexies and they are so little...printed a couple of sheets off as i do not have the die for that size but do for the fabric to fit it . I think they will make cute brooches and hair slides or to decorate gift bags .... I found a little bag of them , not sure when I got them whilst tidying up and they do look cute... Hence I thought I would make some more . A couple are in this picture that I have sewn already...
glueing these are a bit tricky
but I am not planning on making many or very often.
