How's everyone doing?

For me it's the season for hexies again! After finishing up a stitched sampler for a swap last week, I'm back to stitching hexies.

Here it is!




Look how fab it is! Cheesy The green in the eyes is exactly the same shade as the rickrack. Adding rickrack can be a pain, especially around the corners, but you've done it really well. Curiousfae said she was new to cross stitch, but you would never guess that, the stitching is very neat.


I also want to show off the back. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture, but there's a hint of glitter in the black areas too!

Thanks a lot, I really love it!

I have received from curiousfae! It's a really really cute skull pincushion with green eyes in just the right colour. I will try to post pics tonight!

Wow, that one is cute! I always like PS animal patterns. I like the twisted thread border as well, and the loop to hang it from.

I'm done too! Now I just have to think what I'm going to do with it. It ended up a lot bigger than I expected it to. I know you can calculate how big it will be, and I actually did  Roll Eyes  , but apparantly I underestimated how big that would be. Luckily I was too lazy to cut my fabric to size, so I had enough fabric to finish the piece.

I'm extremely relieved it arrived safely in the end! I've been out of town for a bit and somehow missed this post. I'm really glad you liked it - swapping is always a bit scary.

I haven't been too active on here for a while because I was out of town a lot, but I did have some time for stitching and it's going pretty fast now! I made some minor changes to the pattern / colours and I really like where this is going! How are you guys all doing?

Sounds like you have come up with some personal and lovely traditions of your own!

Congrats on getting married soon...better work on that quilt...time goes by so quickly once you set a date...lol....

I wish we could get over with it and be married already! The vow itself holds a lot of meaning to us, which is why we want to be married. But all the hassle surrounding it ... we've been putting it off because we're not looking forward to that part. We've considered eloping but we're not sure it would mean less fuss (although it would be after the wedding, not before). Whenever you let it slip that you're engaged everybody just seems to get hysterical. We're determined to have a low-key wedding.

I'm still kind of stuck on the wedding quilt. I want to make a heritage type quilt, a quilt we're going to cherish for a long time. I'm thinking of a 1930s style quilt because they seem fresh and modern but not so fashionable that they will look outdated in a few years. I'm not an extremely skilled quilter so the pattern shouldn't be too difficult, and I'd prefer to buy all the fabrics from the same range for this project as I'm not 100% confident matching fabrics. I do a lot of scrap quilts these days because in the past I have messed up pretty badly matching fabrics, even when I asked for advice at the shop beforehand. But then I want something really nice and not 13 a dozen either. And something not too girly because my fiance wil object. I know this sounds totally contradictory, which is why I'll probably need some more time to decide  Roll Eyes
