On a lighter note I have been working on my quilt and have impressed myself with the progress.
The hexagons were stitched onto the fabric patches using a blanket stitch. I chose a vibrant Cath Kidston green thread to make it pop!
The patches were then hand stitched together. I used some scrapbook paper to ensure they were all 12" x 12".
The papers removed and a sandwich of batting and fabric backing were pinned together. Stitching them all together is a work in progress.
I am happy with the progress and love the colour mix. It is to be a gift for my daughter for the nursing chair.
Every stitch, a stitch filled with love. A heirloom in the making for my new baby Grandson due next month. I am so excited and am looking forward to meeting him.
I am just hoping that I will have it finished in time...
I am working on it in the lounge so that I don't have to keep popping in and out to the craft room but it does make for an untidy room which I am not used to. Needs must, I am on a mission. I have big plans to crochet a cushion for said nursing chair but that could just be a pipe dream at this stage.
See you soon.
