FNWF-Hexi Time

Last night was FNWF hosted by the wonderful Cheryll.
The night wouldn't have been complete without a little something sweet. So I baked up a batch of Brownies and had one with a cup of tea. They were super rich so I only had the one.(How restrained! Not like me at all!)
Back to the sewing. 

I've had these hexi flowers for ages, so during the week I decided I was going to spend the Bank Holiday weekend putting them together. 
I started in the afternoon and carried on until late evening. I really enjoyed doing them as I haven't done any English Paper Piecing for ages.
I'm off to a Needle Felting Workshop tomorrow and it's a couple of hours away, but as I'm not driving it will give me chance to make some more flowers :)
This week I've also made this super cute Hexi pincushion/caddy.
You can find free tutorial over at Penny's Hands.

The only change I made was when it came to filling it. I used rice to give it some weight and I also left the 2 opposite sides open instead of 1 which made it a lot easier to fill.

Why not pop over to Cheryll's blog and see what everyone got up to.

Have a great weekend.
