The morning after the night before

"Never  put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow" 
Mark Twain

Yesterday had a chance to slip some crafting in, ending in my first Friday Night Stitch In.

 The perennial hexagons were revived as a project which requires little stress or set up, I think they will out last me! 

So as required here is a picture: 

I look forward to being inspired by what others have done.

The main other project was a secret quilt challenge from our quilt club. 
This consists of two pieces of fabric which have to be incorporated into two owls on a banner approximately 1 foot wide by 3 feet long. 

A moment of inspiration struck before Christmas and sketches were made. 
Sanity hit yesterday when I realised I had the same (lack of) enthusiasm as Michelangelo painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and had set it up to be as sizable a task. 

Plan B was developed and before I could consider further, the pieces were cut and ironed and it lies waiting for me to do some machine work.
Now in the fresh light of a new day I am wondering 'what was I thinking'!


I would show you for opinions but as said, it is secret business...
