Tasty and useful!

I've just finished up this quick Jammy dodger biscuit, and it looks good enough to eat ;-)

But wait... it's not just a biscuit...

It's also a tape measure!

This was made from one of the Simply Crochet magazine kits that came with issue 71.

Pretty patchwork

This year I have mostly been patchworking... I started paper piecing a number of hexagons after Christmas and have been very slowly putting them together ever since.

Once all the hexagons were completed I had some fun arranging them along the bottom edge of the curtains I was making, I then took a number of photos of them to act as a patchwork map for joining them all back together.

Months later I had finished joining them and sewing them onto the curtains... final seams and bits were done last night and today I finally have put them up, hooray!

Don't they look so very pretty and lovely hanging up in Emily's room?
