The hand hexi blocks I cut for the trip to Spain have been slowly coming together. I managed a couple on the trip but I was otherwise a little busy. I don't want to rush these as they are great for taking to my Ladies group on Wednesdays and I know I will be kicking myself for some other handwork if I go too fast! Each hexi side is 1 inch and they are in a range of fabrics I picked up as a set from Cupcake Cottons when I went to a class there a couple of years ago. I know I will be setting them in a dusty blue to off set the pinks but I've just noticed the blue stripe in the rug that the bottom right hand block is pointing too is about the shade I will be looking for!
Last week I received this lovely book from Maggi, thank you so much Maggi!! Doesn't Kaffe use some wonderful colour combinations?
Chris and Sian spent a few days down in Cornwall and came back with this pot of delights. It's all great stuff especially the brick, pottery and rare blue, white and brown pieces of glass. Some of the stones are fab too and I may just put them in my tumbler to see how they come out.
And yesterday I had a day with my friend Jan doing a workshop with Alison Board learning about adding texture to surfaces. I have several ideas to try and take forward with this. (You have to love it when the 'what if's' start to happen!)
We had to chop up what we made blind, from the back. I have already stuck the cut pieces in my journal and really love the two below the most.
I've been feeling much better this week and even managed an Aqua-fit class with Elsa. There was always the option of just wallowing rather than doing but it was good to be doing again!
Have a great week.
