The Week In Review

   Progress continues at a snail's pace, but for now, that's the best I can do.
I made two different styles of eyeglass cases as "thank you" gifts.  The first case is larger in size, and more suitable for sunglasses, while the latter is smaller and more appropriate for reading glasses.
   The first is the Cute Sunglasses Case tutorial from Terri at Sew Fantastic.
My neighbor LOVES dogs, and has a golden retriever,
so I thought she would appreciate these fabrics.
    The second eyeglass case tutorial is from Amy at Made During Quiet Time.
    I've also been bit by the Hexie bug, and so have started some of these with leftovers from my Little Apples charm pack.
    I like that I can bring the Hexies with me in the car and do them on-the-go, wherever I am.  Not sure what I'm going to make with them yet, I'll just keep making them and then figure it out.
   Hope you're all enjoying lots of quilting time!  I've been enjoying reading everyone's blogs and seeing what you're working on!
   Have a great weekend!

Great gift ideas E! They will make v.special & practical presents. Your hexies are v.cute with the little detail in the middle. They'd make a lovely cushion front - keep going! Jxo

There's so much goodness here! I've just been nibbled by the hexie bug myself, but not enough to actually start. You're inspiring me. The little pups are just adorable! What great gifts!

Your glasses cases are great! I have both the dog prints but in different colours! I think I need to get them together to 'play'! I have just finished up a hexie mug rug for a Christmas swap! You might like to use yours that way!
