I have been enjoying the slow rhythm of working on Grandmother’s Flower Garden in the evenings most nights after dinner. There is something so relaxing about sitting and stitching after the dinner dishes are cleaned up. My progress has been steady and slow as such things are in my home right now.
The white border around these two flowers was completed.
Not much was done on this flower – the three pink hexis were actually sewn to the yellow instead of just sitting there.
I thought I’d show you my new hexi work box (instead of the gallon size zip lock I was using!). One of my students gave me these delicious cookies at the end of our classes in December. We ate the cookies and this tin has been sitting on my counter. It is so pretty and such a good size I couldn’t get rid of it.
Finally, I found a way to use it. The box hold my cut and prepared hexis while waiting to be sewn. It really is the perfect size, looks pretty, and it is very convenient to have everything contained in one place while stitching in the evenings.
Please take a look at the others who are taking part of this HQAL (Hand Quilt-A-Long) and if you’d like to join us with your project, please contact Kathy at the link below:
