Work in progress

My sewing bug has returned. Inspired by the birth of a friends new baby girl.
I've had this project or one similar to this in mind now for a long time and the birth of Charlotta's little girl has prompted me to give it a burl. I had lots of little tiny patchwork hexagons around after making my flower pin cushion so kindly blogged at turning*turning. So I thought I could put them to good use.

I really can't tell you how much I enjoy making tiny patchwork. I really enjoy using up little pieces of fabric that other wise would be thrown away, yet when put together can be spectacular.

The fact that you can easily carry it with you. Making every opportunity to do a little sewing, no matter where you are. Last week we took a trip to a nearby beach and while O & M explored I was able to sit by the shore line and sew (more about this trip soon).

I'm currently searching for a pretty red work monogram to embroider in the centre of the blanket stitched heart. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good "free" sites for monogram patterns ?
Hoping to get this finished in the next few days so I'll post a picture of it finished and framed.
