Before the holidays I was working on a wall hanging for my creative space. I posted last about it here. I put it away for a bit because I needed to finish some gifts that I shared with you a short time ago. Pulled it back out yesterday and finished the last two blocks.
Finished the embroidery in the center of this block.
Learned to paper piece hexagons. It was the first time I had paper pieced anything. The above and below photos shows them with the basting still in them.
The finished appliqued block.
This evening I sewed the all the blocks together and now I need to cut the boarder strips and decide if I am going to hand quilt or machine quilt it.
Below is a pretty picture I took outside our back door a couple of days ago.
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
