Hexies and Show & Tell

Good Afternoon all. Thought I would pop in and show you my hexies that I am playing with today.
But you see they are teeny tiny ones.....
Well teeny tiny for me only 1/2 inch big. I put a five cent piece there to show you how little they are. I am going to make some little flowers to go on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt's border (another long suffering UFO) I didn't find them too fiddly and I thought I would. I have had the papers for ages and was much too squibby to try them out. they are lots of fun.
On our walk up in the bush this morning guess who we met???
He came right down and crossed in front of us to shimmy up another tree further away from the path. The fact that our very clever council in all it's wisdom has changed it's policy and allowed dogs on leashes into the park (which they are almost never on...the ones we have seen anyway) has limited the wildlife we see considerably. So we were so thrilled to experience this little bloke. I adore dogs but I also love wildlife and I am sorry there are just some places where your doggies shouldn't go. Ok! Stepping down from soap box now! Moving on...show and tell.
The lovely Joy from Bundaberg has been so quick, lightning quick in fact that she has stitched Miss Mousey (Country Bounty) from the latest Country Threads issue already. Want a look see?
Looks great Joy! Thanks for sharing it.
Ok I am off back to my hexies. I would just like to wish all the Mothers out there...
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx

  1. I agree with you on the dogs.....there are plenty of other places they can go! Leave the bush to the wildlife, I say.

  4. Love the hexies Michelle! I agree about the dogs, as a dog owner I think there are places they can be off the lead and the bush is not one of them.

  13. Love your hexies. I so agree about dogs being kept on leashes in the bush. Take them to designated dog parks for running around in. Hugs,xx

  20. Love your little hexies, but I think I will leave them to you.
    I think it's a good idea to leave the dogs on leashes too, I love both!

  21. You wild and crazy girl - those hexies are so small you almost need a magnifying glass to see them. Kudos for being so brave !
