Trying a different type of patchwork
I like the idea of hand sewing
I have been collecting fat quarters for ages
a nice mixture of designs and colours
My first finished hexagons, these were picked for their design
I want to store them in a big box, getting all of the required hexagons finished before stitching together, I have no plans on designs, I will wait until I have made loads. I am not very good a doing random style, I spend ages ensuring the random effect is what I want, to scared to just pick up any hexagon and sew.
I hope to finish the ring of red soon
I want to then stitch the long white panel on the left
white is the hardest part to do.
Another book finished
Another good read, I am now on the hunt again for a different author
I am having fun breaking away from my usual reads.
I have also collected together all my felt squares, again I have loads for projects.
Later I did manage to do some more on Sheffield, I am powering into this stitching, it has to be finished by June.
I love stay at home days, hubby gets bored, but I am trying to get him into hobbies for him rather than him sat at the computer all day, he loves backgammon, cards and golf.
My plants from Saturday are looking OK, it's always a worry when you move things.
