Wow, another year has flown by. I have knitted a few baby blankets with another in progress. I am also crocheting a knee rug in the Dr Who theme using the leftover yarn. It is getting a little warm to continue with that one now.

The other day I came across a few blogs about hexagons and English paper piecing. I hate hand sewing but some years ago started quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) hexagons with leftover scraps from my quilts. With the help of a hexagon calculator I think I need about 700 of my 4" QAYG hexies.
I found a pattern for a hexie pin cushion so one day I might try the paper pieced method... one day.

In other news, last easter I picked up a free kitten at the Gresford Billycart Derby. Dudley was very pleased with little Frank. He is not so little anymore and gets on well with both Dudley and Sylvester.
