FNWF.....all Hexied Out

Last night saw me cosied down in my favourite chair and stitching along with my other blogging friends for
I worked away at my big hexies. I basted enough for several flowers.
and stitched another on to ones already together.
I didn't quite get another flower together before I toddled off to my lovely bed....
I thought after putting a couple together that I need a little more variety and I know I have some bits and bobs in the same kind of style so today I will hunt them out and see what they look like.
Thanks Cheryll for having us at your place once again.....I'll be popping in over the weekend to see what gorgeousness you all produced.
Speaking of hexies......I finished some more of tiny ones for Roma's quilt on Thursday...
I had lovely company while I stitched them. My lovely friend from up on the mountain....Fiona from Bubzrugz came for a visit....
Such a nice way to spend the day.....chatting and stitching, the odd cuppa thrown in. However....there I was boasting to Fiona that I had finished all my little hexie flowers for the next round, when she went home and I laid them all out...
I have only done enough for two sides.....I do not know why I thought I had done enough?????
Luckily I enjoy them because I have a whole lot more to do. I tell you who ever designed this pattern was a "nong" lol!
A little bit of art before I go...I finally finished my giraffe...Mr Inquisitive! I definitely got to learn a lot on this piece....but I love last. It took a while.
I fancy some feathered friends for my next project.
Enjoy your weekend
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
