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.
