Sew Dayz.....

When it's cold, damp, cloudy and rainy out... I have the perfect excuse to skip house cleaning and go play in my sewing room!
and that is just what I did!
I cut out a bunch of 'hexagons' for a sewing project... and I made this firewood carrier from left over fabrics...
 I am planning on appliqueing these hexagons together onto a mini table quilt... The design is called 'Grandma's Garden.... What a great way to use up bits of scrap fabric.....
I had some tweed fabric, some patio furniture upholstery fabric and some broadcloth, all left over from previous projects. I layered them, traced the pattern, cut & sewed.... I double seamed everything for added strength...
Now when hubby dearest brings an armful of firewood, no more wood bits and leaves on his clothes or dragged in on the floor. What a great and easy project to complete in an afternoon.


  1. I don't know how I missed this post. I love the tote!

  2. I need one of those log carriers as I do drag in stuff on me and on the floor and have to vacuum afterwards. I love your hexie project too. I'm trying to get back into sewing as you see results sooner than my knitting and crocheting but the knitting and crocheting I can do from my bed when my legs are shot for the day. lol!

  3. Great wood carrier...perfect for Gary.

  4. Love your hexes and that wonderful wood carrier! You are so clever Gracie! I see Gary's hand! Hello Gary! xox


I love hearing from you....
