Guess what? It's my anniversary today. Not that we've got plans. We're twelve days from the bar exam, so I'm not entirely sure I have a husband. There's this guy who leaves early in the morning and comes home after I'm in bed, and he looks familiar. But I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing lots of him come August 1st!
Also, if you haven't already, go check out my new Monday linky party: Color Mondays. Every Monday, I'm going to post a color, or inspiration. You find a picture, make a color palette, blog it and link it. It's fun!
Now, if there was ever any doubt I had a thing for hexies, well, this should put it to rest.
Love this little pencil pouch. Directions were clear. Oh how we need more patterns with clear instructions. It was a little challenging, but a little challenge is a good thing every now and again, wouldn't you say?
Designed by Amy Friend over at During Quiet Time, it's just too cute. And, as usual, she allows you, the small independent sewer, to sell items made from her patterns. All she asks is that you credit her for the design. Lovely, lovely person, don't ya think?
Now, her Etsy shop is not overflowing with cute little bag patterns.
Nope. Paper piecing is the name of the game, and I'm in love.
The Vintage Bathing Suit (I need one in red gingham, aqua polka dots . . .)
The Cardinal - I need to make one for my bird-loving auntie
Garden Boot - I'll need two yellow ones please. And aqua polka dots.
I really love this one:
And a gorgeous quilt pattern called Indie Vibrations

How's about a giveaway? Amy has generously offered one of you up to $15 in free patterns. That could be 2-3 free patterns! How awesome is that? Head over to her etsy shop and tell me your favorite pattern(s). I won't force you to choose just one, since I couldn't!
Giveaway runs through midnight next Wednesday, July 23. I'll choose a winner and post it Thursday morning. Good luck! And get yourself this hexie pouch pattern. It's too adorable!
