Hexed!! An update!

 
 
While enjoying a stitching day at Millrose  in Ballan on Sunday,
l took my hexi flowers for a walk around the shop.
l found 2 that l liked, so l put it to the other girls stitching with me to help.
The decision was unanimous!!
 
So l am happy to report that l have finally found the fabric l want to use as my pathway!
l set to on Tuesday, covering a handful to test them out.
Here is the result! l couldn't be more happy.
Love them, and love what they bring to the flowers.
l originally bought 2 metres, then yesterday bought 2 more, just in case!!
Can a girl ever have enough of a great fabric?? LOL
 
 
 

 
My tally so far is 39 flowers completed, and 14 centres made.

 
Then l have tons more prepped and ready to pick up and go.
l take my tin of fabric and papers with me everywhere,
and when ever l have a few minutes of down time,
l take it out and stitch a few.

 
And now l also have to confess that l have a new hexi addiction!
When l was in France a few years ago, l fell in love with these blue Liberty fabrics.
 l chose 3 solids to go with them and put them in a case to make a French memory quilt.
When l came home l went through my meagre Liberty stash and pulled out some extras.
 This is what l stitched at our sewing day in Ballan.
Couldn't be happier with how it is looking,
and makes a nice change from working with the reds all the time.
Time will tell what l choose for the pathway here, but l do have something in mind!!
Stay tuned!!
 


 
Thanks for visiting.
Linda.

  10. Hi Linda! It's been so long since I've been able to catch up on blogs! Time has been spent on paper work duties instead of holding a needle and thread...can't wait to get back at it! Your posts were wonderful as usual, so many beautiful pictures to inspire us all. I'm so sorry for the loss of your sister and also the pup injury.
