Squeezing in a little stitchin'

Life is busy for me at the moment, in between work, family and uni I'm still managing to squeeze in a little bit of sewing.

I finished the cute hexagon thread catcher that Vicki showed everyone how to make at "Let's Get Stiitched", it's so simple to make and the end result is very cute.
I started working on the pillow that Dawn provided a pattern for and showed us all how easy it was to cut the shapes out using a GoCutter.
Aren't those flowers sweet!

I've also been working on a swap for Friends in Stitching (online group), I can't so you any photos of that just yet but it's looking rather cute.

The first few workshops at Uni have been great, my first assignment has been completed and marked....
8.5 out of 10, not too bad considering I'm not the best writer.
Next assignment is 750 words, we're working up to 3000 words for the third. 

I hope to show you photos next week of my new craft room, still a little bit of stuff to sort through but it's looking lovely.

That thread catcher is dinky isn't it, I've got the pattern somewhere. It sounds as if you've made a good start with your course. I've done several Open University short courses over the last few years since I retired and have thoroughly enjoyed them, but I wouldn't want to actively go back to university though. Loads of luck.
