One Flower Wednesday

Since making (hexie) stones is a little boring after awhile I decided to start working on Christmas ornaments....



I'll have this ready to hang on a tree  by next week and hopefully a few more.  Thanks to Karen and all the other ladies who keep me motivated.  Take a look and see what's blooming at One Flower Wednesday.

This past week I made a zippered bag and it turned out!  I know all of you can make these, but I was so excited!!!  My daughter picked out the fabric she wanted and she was so pleased with the results - she loves it!



And my seams even matched!




This week my goal is to make an apron with aqua and apricot material....it will be another first.  I know how to do piecing (straight pieces) and now with following your blogs and joining in on swaps I've learned so much.  Thank you for all your encouragement!
Happy Stitching!

Danette, I love the Christmas hexie.....what do you do to finish it for hanging? I am impressed with your bag....it is nice when your project looks as great from the bottom as it does from the top!

The Christmas flower is lovely! Never too early to start for December, I say. The bag is fab, great fabrics, great makings! Good luck with the apron, you'll be fine.
