Say It Ain't So!

 I am so sad that next season of Downton Abbey will be the last--waaahh....
At least we have Mr. Selfridge to entertain us for a while.

 All this week I have been seeing stripes in my sleep! 
There are a lot of these patriotic designs and I am working hard to make them all a bit different from each other, but I am running out of ideas! 
Coat of Arms

House with Flag

Yes, there are even more designs in need of stripes,
but I see light at the end of the tunnel!

 I'll be stitching on these during Mr. Selfridge tonight.

  1. There sure are a lot of interesting ways to add those stripes!

  2. I never watched Downton Abbey....I think I missed out huh!? LOVE LOVE your hexi's

  3. I am sad about that too... love Downton and all the characters.
    Enjoy your stitching and Mr. Selfridge!

  4. I have not Mr Selfridge yet and am very sad about Downton Abbey. I enjoyed The Paradise too. Love seeing all your partriotic hexies.

  5. We are all going to go into withdrawal with the end of DA!
    Your blocks are coming along lovely. I especially like the eagle block!

  6. You've added great variety with all those stripes. Each block is a cute little picture all on its own.

  7. What a great job! They all have their uniqueness but fit together well as a whole. Really cute!

  8. Hello Karen! What beautiful work you have done on these hexagons! Enjoy Mr Selfridge! :) x

  9. They are wonderful. Great variations!!

  10. I hope to see all of Downton Abbey one of these days. We watch something else on Sunday evening and I never really got into the habit of watching it though I have watched some of it.
    Have you counted how many of the wool hexagons you have made? Has to be a bunch.
