It is good to be back. I've been on a lovely family holiday to rural Suffolk. A beautiful part of the world, full of charm with thatched roof cottages in abundance.
There was a lovely pond in the garden with Koi carp and beautiful waterlillies......
...... and lots of big dragonflies...
I couldn't go on holiday and NOT take any sewing, so I decided to start a hexie project using only florals.
My hexies measure 1" on each side and I was able to transport everything in a small container.
I've opted for this red fabric for the background.
This is how it is looking so far. I am really enjoying doing some hand sewing again.
This week my hubby goes back to work and my girls go back to school so I can get back to some serious sewing. I've not looked at my machine for 2 weeks and I am itching to get stuck in !
I have a lot coming up including finishing Orca Bay in time for the quilt show, making a ring cushion for my friend who is getting married in 4 weeks time and also starting work on a new commission for a bed quilt.
I hope you are all enjoying the summer.
