I've been hand sewing some hexies together using some fantastic templates I bought from The Blanket Box.  The fabric is mostly from a couple of lines of French General - it's really easy to sew and I'm able to usually get at least one done a week when I catch up with the ladies at my stitch and patch session - we don't take sewing machines so this project is ideal.  It's on my list of Summer sewing and I'm expecting to be able to make at least another 15 (I just finished one and my list mentions 16).  These are 8" finished so I'm thinking I'll need about that before I start joining them together with sashing - and with a couple of borders to finish they'll make a stylish quilt for someone very special.

So, while I can't cross anything off the list as yet, at least the 'doing' is progressing.......and speaking of progressing, here's the rose bush at my front entrance just a couple of days after this post.......

Typical Melbourne - glorious one minute, pouring the next - we have a saying - if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes!!


  1. A bit like England then. Love your hexies - they will make a beautiful quilt!

  2. Love all the different hexies :o)

  3. Those are lovely hexies, and a great hand sewing project

  4. The hexies are looking great.....French General is perfect or them. My roses are at almost the same stage...the smell is divine on a warm day, but as yet few flowers and lots of buds.


I love to read your comments - so please feel free!!
