Wow--the month is almost over and I have done almost NO stitching on my Stitch Society hexagons!
|I felt I should at least do the monthly project, so I used one of the sampler hexies as my centerpiece. The pillow pattern showed how to add the 60 degree triangles to create a star. the pattern also has a ruffled edge made from wool, but I chose not to do that (because I'm lazy, but mostly because I abhor ruffles!). My triangles looked a little bare, so I stitched in some little paisleys I made up--just the shape with a little flower.|
|The pillow is very practical too. |
It's supposed to be used on the lap as support while stitching. I have several friends that use a pillow for this purpose. I'm determined to try to get used to it. It does work great when working Colonial knots!
|I'm so glad we are winding down on the Sunflower Gatherings Summer Block of the Week!|
It's been pretty stressful trying to keep up with this project during a busy summer.
I hope I remember that next year!!
|I changed this one up a bit....|
...subbed Colonial Knots for the stars in the centers of the little blue flowers.
|This is the last block of the summer--yay!|
But once this is all stitched down, I have a lot of piecing to do!
