Foxes and dragons

Everyone has a soft spot for foxes, don't they? Especially when they look as cute as this little dude. His name is Chester, and oh, how my kids loved him.

He (she?) looks great in other colours too!

And this little fellow here is Spike the Dragon. He looks rather dashing in blue as well as the traditional moss green.

Both patterns are by Little Muggles and can be purchased here.

In other news, Alice's paper-pieced hexie doll quilt is progressing slowly, but surely. I have completed the quilt top and I am half way through the hand-quilting (yes, I like to make things rather difficult for myself. That's my idea of FUN.) It's been slow going both because hand-quilting is quite hard on the hands, but also because I had to take a few days' break from it to complete my fifth project for Homespun magazine. I wish  I could share some photos of THAT with you but I am not even allowed to give a sneak peek! Argh, it's killing me but I will just say this - it's a cracker! (wink wink)

I have a little obsession going on with Japanese repro 30s fabrics at the moment. Exhibit A - this bundle of Lecien & Yuwa yumminess I found on Etsy even though I am supposed to be on a fabric buying ban. Oh my goodness. I look at these and I can see some cute quilts and cushions screaming 'Make me! Make me!'. Lecien make it just SO easy.

  1. I know!!!! I love their fabrics too and I love your grandchildren would love those! I need to get that pattern and I could make them each a different color therefore no mistaking each other's fox or dragon or whatever.
    I have made hexies and love them but have not attempted a hexie quilt but whenever you do something I want to do it too. We must have the same tastes. Thank you for so many fun ideas and projects!

  2. P.S. BTW your children are just adorable and those eyes are enough to melt any heart! So sweet!
