Somewhere Over The Rainbow!

This is one of my favourite songs, especially the Eva Cassidy version.
But why am I talking about rainbows?  Apart from being one of the most beautiful spectacles to behold in the sky they are also very popular in blogland at the minute (the patchwork version that is!).
For March in Sew Bee Happy, Kara has set us to work on a rainbow hexie block, based on this tute.
I don’t consider myself v.good at achieving the ‘right’ rainbow balance, made even harder with prints rather than solids in my opinion.  
But here is my attempt at a rainbow hexie block.

I’m hoping Kara will accept this rainbow, without the pot of gold!!

My other antics yesterday were making up a birthday present for my sister.  She has already requested a replica of my Welcome Wallhanging, which hangs in my hallway.  She even wants it done in the same colours!

So here it is:

The figure in the hanger is meant to be an angel – looks more like a planking Pilgrim Father to me!

I’ve also made her a ring out of a crocheted flower (she loves chunky rings!) 

and no birthday package is complete with out a silicone spatula!  (you don’t want to know!).

Enjoy your Sunday!
