FNSI

March's .....
was last evening. WENDY over at Sugarlane Quilts was our hostess.
I had a "day"as well as a"night" sew in. It was going to be a Splendid Sampler sew in.
I was determined to get my top finished. I began with getting borders on the centre.
I joined both sides of blocks and top and bottom. As I wouldn't have this amount of time available again for a while I very naively thought I could get it together and then stitch the hexagons to the inner border....
Hexies made....
Well things are quite often better in theory......it took me the rest of the night to get one row of hexies appliqued down. It was so ungainly an uncomfortable to hold.
So I almost got it finished. But not quite! I will save the reveal until I have the other sides done.
We have finally had some quite heavy showers which the garden has loved. I love the little puddles of water on the leaves of this succulent.


Well my personal Barista has my coffee ready (he has a new toy) so I best be away.

A little something to ponder from Tiny Buddha.com.....have a lovely weekend. 

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  12. Love the idea of hexies appliqued in the borders. May "borrow" this idea on a project of my own sometime down the road. Will keep in mind that it might get cumbersome.
