    Small projects

    I have been working on a few small projects this summer. First one is a wool applique (5"x11") of snowmen and the other is my first hexie project(11"x20"). Both were fun to do.

    Love those woolie Snowman! Wool gives such great texture to a quilt or table runner or anything for that matter. Both projects turned out great!.

    great projects. aren't those hexies addicting. I'm starting a new one tonight too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Both are adorable. Love the cute snowmen with your perfect tiny stitches, and the hexie table runners vintage look with your wonderful choice of fabrics. Great job.

    Sometimes the "small " projects take as much time as the large ones. From what I can see you really spent time on these. How cute the woolen one is.

    Nice work. I love the one with the snowmen. Isn't the blanket stitch fun?
