Fini.

Finished both my 'vacation' projects this weekend! :)

 Queen Bee by LHN

 No mods..........that I remember. The linen is called Straw but I have to admit I'm not sure what company it's from. (WDW? Maybe?) I get linen in, throw it in the pile and then never really know what it is or where it's from. /shrug 
I really liked the frame that was pictured with the pattern for this but the square shape is just begging for a cube finish instead, right?

 Vesper striping yarn

And more stripey socks (that I never ever get tired of making............or wearing!) This color was hard to photo.........when the sun hits this yarn, I swear it GLOWS. Soooooooooooo bright! LOVE IT!
So that's cool, not letting them drag out for months or whatever. Now I can rip into something NEW and SHINY. lol

Here's a cool link I came across this morning on Pinterest:
Oh, to have the time to get to all the projects in the world!!!

 I really like the patchwork pincushion that links to here. Super cute! Bookmarking that one for sure.

Great new socks, and i love the colours :-) Yes, i think you're right, a cube finish for the bee!

The patchwork pincushion is cute, but alas me + material + sewing machine = disaster. lol

Have a good week x

Love the Queen Bee! If Queen Bee wants a cube finish, Queen Bee gets a cube finish...beecause she's the Queen!! Omigosh, I want to reach through the monitor and steal those socks from you. <3

That pincushion is adorable. Good thing I'm not tempted by things that require a...dun Dun DUN...sewing machine!

That fabric is to die for. I'd love pillows made out of it, just like the pin cushions!

I'm sure Queen Bee will make a beautiful cube finish! The socks are great too...you've had a good week.

I've pinned that Stash Buster Link on Pinterest too but haven't had a chance to go through all the tutorials. I need to start making some of the stuff I pin! :)
