Hexie pincushions..

....they just keep popping up everywhere. A fun workshop was recently presented by one of our Liberty Ladies members - this was the result -

And check out Thimble Stitch (tap name for link) interpretations with additional cross stitching...

Have to love those hexies - and know there are more coming in the Di Ford Mystery quilt (saw a sneak peek in a photo from the Nantes Quilt Show in France)

No hexies here, but completed Block #5 in the Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt - really liked doing this block, as a larger piece of the red chintz could be used - this antique-inspired fabric is a favorite of mine, even though it is a tad heavier and thus does not needle turn as smoothly as I would prefer.

Finally back to working on the center wreath for Drayton Hall...it has been folded up for too long!

Stress level continues on a high note, so keeping hands busy continues too..

Have a good week everyone.

That is a cute hexie pincushion.
You have hinted before about stress in your life. Sorry it is continuing! I hope the handwork can be therapeutic for you! It all looks beautiful!

Lovely little hexie pincushion, the button is a cute touch. Your appliqué looks wonderful. I really don't know how non-sewers cope in times of stress, my stitching often saves me too. Thinking of you. X

I echo the well wishes for stitching your way through stressful times. Take care.

I hope the stress levels remain in manageable limits. Too much and other things might go wrong.

These are such pretty little objects, working at them must be just a little therapeutic?

Take care.
