Yes a new project will be started – just a little one! Right now I am pretty much just hand piecing hexies and we all know if you have ever made hexies that you do need a change up now and then. In the book I showed you yesterday there are four small wall hangings that could be used for the change of seasons or for a wall of all four hangings together. I decided to make the one for the winter season and go from there – all four or just one? Not decided. The book on my Ipad – this is the winter design obviously.
My pattern printed out with no trouble other than the pattern printed out 1/8th of an inch too small – the scale was 2 inches and mine measured 1 7/8th. Oh well – no problem for me as it is all applique – I will possibly cut as is or when I cut just cut a tad larger. I went through my box of felted wool and got busy picking pieces. I didn’t have a white for the snowman so I choose a piece of white flannel that I have. The wall hanging will be about 20 x 20 inches. For my Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will be cutting pieces out and arranging them getting ready for some stitching. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
I forgot to show a new needle work that Melanie made for me – a jar covering to hold coffee cream.
One more hexie done. I have not sewn the two with the outer dark rings in place or the pink one. The next several or more that I will make I will make sure to have lighter colors and then I can mix them up more before I start to stitch any in place. I might go ahead and make all the “flowers” needed before I stitch any in place so I can make sure the colors are all mixed up really well in the design.
