I have been a busy bee recently basting the coffin hexies for my Wings and Pretty Things borders. I have basted more than I need for the moment but I felt it was good to have some done ready for the outer border, when I get there. Anyway, here they are
and here are the ones for the first border, all sewn together.
So my Friday task was to cut the background fabric and start appliqueing! And this is where I was by he end of Friday.
Not quite finished but almost!
Many thanks to Wendy for getting us together again - you can see who else took part here. I have a bit of reading to do I can see!
This lovely postcard arrived in my postbox recently
It was from Annie as a bloghop prize. If you don't know Annie then do pop over to her blog, she makes some lovely things. It is some time since a post card came my way and it has enthused me to make some myself!
Spring is well under way here although it is decidedly nippy here this weekend with a cold north wind blowing. But the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in sight!
Have a great week
So many beautiful fabrics in that pile of hexies what a lovely way to end your Friday stitching down those lovely coffins.ReplyDelete
Gosh Lin, coffins sound like such a depressing description for those quite lovely fabric pieces. The ghouls might not like coffins taking on a new reputation of “pretty”. But those fabrics sure are pretty. What a fantastic border they will be. I’m so glad your postcard arrived with such care, looking as nice as when I mailed it. Thank you so much for your generously kind words and comments.ReplyDelete
Lots of hexies here :-) in such pretty fabrics.ReplyDelete
Little colder here too, but this week at least mostly dry.
As long as the sun is shining. =) Your coffin hexies look fabulous, Lin, and the postcard Annie sent to you is lovely.ReplyDelete
What pretty fabrics in your coffins! Very nice.ReplyDelete
