This maybe old news to some of you and I love you for it! Thank you for sticking with me throughout the years! I post on Instagram  Intheboondocks   daily  But my blogging hasn’t  covered a lot of the items  I have made! I am working on baby quilts this week for new babies! I am trying like other bloggers  to get back in the habit of  blogging at least once a week!  Now on to getting caught up! I finished this free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop Wave Your Flag Tablerunner Fabrics: Patriotic ones I had in my stash  by Patric Loose,  I also used his Stars line  for the back and Binding Kona Cottons- Dark Blue, Aqua & Snow White Thread: Aurifil 50 Wt It is a patchwork pattern and beginner friendly! with 4th of July coming up you have time to do this!

Hexagon Flower Pincushion  Fabric - Heather Ross Trixie Back of pincushion- Heather Ross Strawberries  Thimblepads I keep them in a little tin!

Aurifil 80 weight thread A hexagon flower sewn by hand using Aurifil 80 weight thread a piece of backing fabric!  (2) pieces of Pellon SF101 cut to size! Iron the Pellon  to each back of fabric! It will strengthen  the front side of each side! Draw a circle on the backside  of your flower! I used a measuring cup,  to draw a circle! Put fabrics right sides together and sew 1/4” inside the circle! All the way around! It will look like above! Use a seam ripper to make about a 1 1/2” gap Big enough to put your finger in! Trim around the circle  (About a 1/4”) Leaving room for clipping! Clip all around the circle  and be careful not to clip the stitches! Pin the top opening and iron! It is easier to fill it with Walnut Shells if you use a funnel! Fill it up and h

Sew Whatcha Making? linky Party

Image
Hello out there! I am trying to decide if I want to invest time and a little money into having a linky party once a month or once a week! Maybe not at all! My questions to you is would you come and link up? My idea is once a month I would do a post on what I have been making with the link. You could link anything you have created! Crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, paper crafts. I don't know maybe you paint rocks, like my friend does. Then we could all look around and be inspired! Do you want prizes? Everyone who enters a link is entered into a giveaway for something? Which sign do you like best, top or bottom, start over!   I have wanted to do something creatve for a longtime then I got lost in the ease of Instagram but I realized not everyone who reads a blog is on instagram. Different people like to change it up a bit but my heart is still in blogging and creating.   So tell me what you think and help me make a decision. Thank you for taking time out of your day t
