August recap

It has been a busy month again, but also I have been away on a very lovely holidays for half of the month. It was so nice to sit on the beach, enjoy the sun and the waves and do little for a lit bit over a week. We went in the Landes area (south West of France just north of Spain) where there are kilometers of unspoilt beaches and lots and lots of pine trees. We had such a great time! :-)

I crammed quite a lot of sewing before I went and did just a little while I was away! Let's have a look:

Hoping for Finishes!
1. Zodiac swap mini - my hexies are all ready to be applique on the background.

2. Paris swap - I started my paper-pieced Eiffel Tower but this one needs a bit more work.
