flowers, finishes & books

My lovely flower garden has grown by 3 more flowers. I didn't think i'd get any made this week at all. To busy with other things but the other night i sat there & cut the hexies out & last night sewed the 3 up. I have been trying not to use the same fabrics in the flower apart from the white centre & so far have been successful.
The last 2 wallhangings have been finished. YAY. Now to drag out the next pile of UFO.s Heheh
Kindred Hearts by The Chook Shed. Lazy model didn't stand up for me. To busy playing World Of Warcraft.
Sewing notions. Pattern by Mum's Moment. Not sure what happened to the tea-dye fabric as it wasn't that dark when i did the embroidery. Just washed the wallhanging & the "dye" seemed to be darker.  Was not impressed as that hasn't happened to me before.
Found out about this author on a blog somewhere. Quilts & murder. Love to find new quilt novels. :)  They've only just arrived from the Book Depository & i've read only a few chapters. So far so good.
The 2nd book in the series.

Good on you for keeping on with your hexie flowers. They'll be so wonderful when they're all put together! And thanks for the book titles/author. I've made a note to look for them.

I love your flowers. There pretty.
And I think I have to read books in English, because there aren't a lot of quilt books translated into Dutch

Lovely flowers and two beautiful wallhangings you made! The books look interesting to me; I love reading, but have never heard of these before (not of the writer either..).
Thanks for sharing.

More lovely flowers .. the green is so fresh.
I'm so pleased you managed to squeeze them in.
Sadly I have no flower to share this week but I did cut out more templates, baste some centres and also basted the petals ready for my next flower while sitting in the car waiting for DH in "men's" shops.
