A Hexie or Three

The hexies have been coming along in nice little piles for Brinton Hall. Very relaxing but definitely not a quick undertaking. But that is just fine with me!
Still I have a top and bottom and one side set of pieces together for the fill ins around the  centre medallions....
The other side set is well under way. Feels good using up all those little scraps. Somehow you never seem to run out do you lol!
So not very exciting for you folks  I am afraid but I  have had a very nice time with needle and thread, stitching quietly when I  can.
Lots of pencil action has also been happening but nothing to show you just yet. I quite like those in between times of working away at a project, caught up in the process.
The postman bought me lovely mail this week all the way from the UK. I had ordered an art book by a colour pencil artist I really admire, Alan Woollett called Bird Art! I had been longing to get my hands on it! I was not disappointed.
What a beautiful and inspiring book. I am loving reading about the artists process and enjoying the gorgeous art work. Such a treat to have it to hand for inspiration. Appreciation of the creative work of others can be so uplifting....whether it be a quilt, embroidery,  beautifully crafted knitted piece, a delicious meal prepared by a friend, a painting or a favourite book. I am always fascinated by something created by clever hands and love...how about you? Appreciation and gratitude of beauty in turn creates joy.

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  7. Enjoy your book. I think scraps have a way of multiplying no matter how many you use, ans sometimes you just need something a bit bigger and have to buy more fabric.... that's how they do it!
