Last night it was time for
hosted by our lovely Wendy who celebrated a birthday & offered a lovely free stitchery to print out. Pop over to her blog to find the stitchery pattern.
I make plans in my head as to what i'll sew on these cyber sewing Fridays but as usual when i get up i find my mojo has let me down again. I have little desire to do much crafting at all. Even at night when i usually handstitch i do little.
I did do a little crafting yesterday though.
I added the last 3 hexagons to this flower. It is the 2nd of 2 flowers i made this week that form the top & bottom of a pincushion which is a wee bit larger than i thought it would be, :).
Next up was this little project.
I'd bought this hexie box a year or so ago. It comes with the fabric to make 7 hexagons, iron on templates(which i really don't like at all), iron on transfer for the centre hexagon to be embroidered & several pictures of ideas what to do with your finished flower.
I'd cut out the 6 hexies ages back & ironed on the transfer as well. As i glued the edges down i found it not to be easy when there isn't stiff carboard to fold the fabric around.
I then embroidered the centre. I found i was having a hard time getting the embroidery centred on the iron on hexagon but got it eventually. It was then i made a mistake. Not sure exactly what happened but as i was cutting it out i cut to close to the embroidery so now there isn't enough seam allowance on 1 point.
Not to worry i'll embroider it again as it doesn't take long to do & applique this one onto something so that it's not a total waste.

Last night i joined in with Cheryll & friends for some sewing. I haven't felt like crafting lately, what i dod is in dribs & drabs. I had planned on starting early & getting some ufo's done but as usual my mojo had deserted me.
Going through my box of prepped projects a couple of weeks or so back i had pulled out 5 blocks from a quilt from many years ago. It was made up of 12 blocks by various designers. I didn't want all the blocks so only bought the 5. I have been slowly stitching them for the last 2 to 3 weeks. When i had counted the blocks & realised i only had 5 & that wasn't a good number for a quilt I've been thinking on what to do with them. Do i makea series of small hangings or add 4 pieced blocks & make a large hanging. Fortunately i still have some Bonnie & Camille fabrics that i can use in whatever i decide. The blocks i bought were all kits using their fabric.
Anyway the block i stitched last night was from Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse
When finished it has a cute green peeper border then surrounded by hexagons appliqued to the background.
