'Makey Bakey Mouses!'

Brrrrr its gone so cold over the last few weeks, I don't mind the cold & snow just hate the rain....makes my poor bones so achy!  The one thing I do love about Autumn tho, is the changing of the leaves. The colours are stunning, I love a good walk in the woods this time of year. But not when its wet & cold like it is now :(

Anyhoos on with why I'm really here lol!
It's the start of a new challenge over at My Time To Craft, where this week we want you to...


We want your backing papers to look like a quilt, you can use any shape you like. I decided on a hexagon as I remember my Nan making my doll a quilt with hexagons on when I was little.
