FNSI July

I had planned to start early but unfortunately the house work fairies were on strike. Then when i got the UFO out the magazines were missing. So the search was on. Had a thought floating about as to where they may have been but it was elusive. Lunch was in order while the thought percolated. Aha try looking in the pile of gardening magazines behind my chair. Yes there they were & i could finally proceed. So glad i didn't have to pull the house apart to find them.

Several years back i had made all the flowers needed for a hexagon quilt but had only traced & partly done 15 of the embroidered joiner hexagons. I needed 54.
An hour or so later & i had 39 traced hexagons. Last night i spent doing the satin stitch of these 10.
No my trouble is that i took all the embroidery thread from the box & i'm having a little trouble matching up the red i used for the flowers. It's a Cottage Garden Thread & i have several reds that could be it. But I found the green & yellow ok. Well that's a problem for tonight's sewing to sort out.

Pop over to our lovely hostess Wendy  to find links to see what projects were worked on by everyone last night.

Happy Stitching,

Hexies are all the go now and I feel guilty about the pile that I made and they just sit there. Time to act me thinks.

You sound like me, no matter how organised I try to be, I'm always hunting for something! Glad you were able to finally settle to sew though, you made some good progress.
