|This photo makes me so sad...|
|If she thinks I'm going to keep still while she takes yet more bloody photos she's got another think coming...|
My stripy turquoise fabric has arrived from The Eternal Maker (yummy!) and I'm waiting for the medium grey to come back into stock at Simply Solids. I've put the Drunkard's Path blocks back into second place as my hexy addiction is back with a vengeance! Be warned: there are lots of photos on the way - I told you I'd distracted myself! In the interests of honesty I should tell you that I stitched five of these about two weeks ago but I was in the grip of DP madness at the time so didn't share them!
|Patterns found here - thanks Melissa! and here - thanks Joanne!|
|Pattern found here - thanks Lynne!|
|The top left hexy is based on this hexy - thanks Sheila!, the hexy on the right makes me very happy and the pattern for the bottom hexy was found here - thanks Liz!|
|Pale pink stripes are so hard to photograph - you may have to put your nose to the screen to see this one!|
I loved this hexagon by Joanne at Possum Blossom Patch when I saw it in the Lily's Quilts Flickr group but I really thought it was going to end in tears. This is the only hexy I've contemplated trying with EPP instead but fortunately cup of tea and a break resolved our differences and hand piecing triumphed! I love it but will I be making another one? Not on your nelly!!
There's also been a little bit of embroidery going on (I'd run out of prepped hexies and didn't have enough light to prep any more!) - I've been working on this (on and off, very much off recently!) for a couple of months and it will eventually be a garland for my mum.
And just to prove it hasn't all been successful stitching...
|I knew there was something wrong but it took me a while to realise I was making a pouch instead of a hexy!|
I think that's enough for now...I also think I've proved that I'm completely incapable of writing a short post so I may as well stop feeling bad about it!
There are more hexies being prepped...
...ready to join the group...
|36 pieced and 5 whole...about 20% done!|
...so I think I'd better go and pay them (and Archie!) some attention - it's time for a very short walk in the lashing rain!
Thanks for visiting and happy stitching!
Edited to add: I knew there was something I'd forgotten! Karen is requesting blocks so that she can make some bed clothes for child victims of sex trafficking in Thailand - she's going over there in November so you've got a while to make some and get them to her...please help if you can - thank you!
