Slow progress

The progress on the embroidered hexagons is slow going. I've still 18 left to embroider the flowers on. After that the leaves & the satin stitched centres. Hopefully turning them all into a quilt top will progress faster .:)

Happy Stitching,

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.

Finally a flimsy

Well it took oh so long but the Trip Around the World is finally a flimsy.
I must be crazy but i've another hand pieced project lined up but before i start it there are many more things to finish or at least get into tops.

Happy Stitching,

Trip Around the World.

I've been working on this all week. This is as far as i got 3 nights ago. I'm still trying to decide on the triangles for the last row. Any suggestions. I'd have done more if it wasn't for my indecision about the fabric & a migraine.

Last night i finished this little stitchery that has been about half done for a few months. It's for the front of a bag.
