And once again I am linking up with Anthea as we 'Piece Ourselves Together'!

Well, in between other projects, I have been busy cutting and tacking and now have a box full of hexies ready to sew together - when I decide on what to make. At the moment I am thinking Dilly Bag but who knows!
Lots of fabrics in there from way back as I work through my scrap box.
I also have my May crazy block pieced together, framed and ready to start stitching.
This time the fabrics are all ones I have dyed myself - mottled and blotchy cos that's how I like them. There is some velvet in the middle, smooth and raw silk, cotton and the pin tucks were along the bottom of an old linen apron I bought years ago from a brocante. It had a few holes in but was perfect for ripping up and dyeing. This time I plan to be much freer with my embroidery - more like the work I did on my hexie machine cover .
It's another beautiful day in the Dordogne - hope it's fine where you are.
