Piecing Myself Together!

Many thanks to Anthea for hosting our linky again - great to have you back. Pop over to Anthea's blog to see how her lovely scrappy quilt is coming along and to check out the other link ups.

First of all I have my swap hexies for August - again these are all winging their way to Australia. Well they will be soon - went to the PO this morning and for some reason it was closed so will have to try later in the week. Anyway, here they are.


I love that black, white and aqua combo! The aqua is a little darker in real life.

I have not had much time to work on my Hexathon quilt but I have added a few border blocks to my collection.


I have been a bit distracted by the DMTV stitchalong which now looks like this.



I have just added some quilting around the printed hexies for now but need to add a different stitch before the next part comes out on Thursday. Regular readers of my blog will have read all about this piece in my last blog post but if you are visiting for EPP Tuesday then you might like to go back to that post here to find out what it is all about.

Well that's it from me for today. Hope you are having a good week and lots of time to sew.

First I have to say the fuchsias in your header are awesome-did you grow those? I love how you picked out the colors from the fuchsias to make your book cover. Its is very interesting with the gold stamp work. My favorite work of yours tho is the crazy quilt work. Wonderful stitching with ribbon and thread, good embellishments with lace and little buttons, and your colors and fabrics perfect. What a wonderful collection of fabrics and threads and laces you have.
