I've had a lot of slow stitching time this week. With a knee injury and instructions to stay off my feet with my leg elevated, what's a girl to do??? After the pity party, I settled down with some projects. I've knit some but mostly I've worked on my hexies.
One day I played with EQ7 to make my design and to know how many hexies I need to make. While working on these with granddaughter Mae, she asked if this was for her so I named it Mae's Flower Garden.
I decided I needed to use a smaller bin so I kitted some flowers up into snack bags and put my supplies in a plastic pencil box. With flower #9 almost complete, I only have 29 whole flowers left to stitch. And then there are all the half flowers and the filler hexies but I have a plan so I'm all set, right???
I stumbled across this blog post from Jo Morton the other day so now I need to get my white and green fabrics soon so I can use her method. I like the tip about not getting bored with the paths.
What are you stitching? See what other's are doing at Kathy's Quilts.
