Travelling Without Moving

Lots of activity going on chez Byrne while not much actual action is apparent. It's mainly cerebral. All this being in charge of your own destiny stuff is very confusing sometimes. I have been making a few things though. It started with a pin on Pinterest, where else, where the pinner explained how useful this type of keyfob was. You don't rummage for your keys because it's easy to catch hold of the long strappy thing. (The smaller one is for my cupboard at work.)
Patchwork Keyring
I've found it pretty useful so have made some more for xmas presents.

It all served to remind me how much I enjoy hexagon patchwork. Plus I have all the papers left from this bad boy...
Hexagon Patchwork Quilt
...(which is still in my WIP pile) AND I've just completed a 2.5" square fabric swap. So when I do a house swap with Mater in a couple of weeks time I'll be taking this pink box with me.

It's what I used for the quilt to keep all my hex's in before making them into flowers. I've decided this time to go smaller - a cushion cover. Meanwhile I have finished a present I can't show, cast on another I can't show and continued with my fairisle mashup. Cue blurry photo.

I'm increasing after the waist at the moment. I'll be taking this away on the house swap too.

I've been looking at crafty things to do while I'm away in Somerset. I am strangely tempted by Cheddar Gorge. Anyone been?
