a gift from norway

a big thank you to the lovely Lena Karin!

recently I won her giveaway and received one of her signature bags and some treats

these gorgeous little pouches are simply delightful and Lena makes beautiful projects

her applique pieces are superb

been doin' some sewing of my own

these litte treat bags are from a design by happy zombie

grosgrain ribbon works better for the handles but I had the darndest time trying to find the colour/pattern that I wanted

sigh...hard to resist precut hexies

sewing..just a little bit

just in case you'd thought I had given up wrangling needle and thread

still stitching my diamond hexies when I can find some time

not following a pattern but once I've made enough I will
stitch them together into a lap size quilt
