Over on Instagram Zoe Mayson (@zoemayson) offered her lovely scraps to make a hexie pincushion, and I was one of the lucky ones who won some of them, and since finishing it I fell in love with making hexagons again!
After the pincushion one thing led to another and I found this lovely pattern for a hexagon needle book by Emma of Vintage Sewing Box. I have finished but I don’t think I have a photo of the actual finished item!
Since "lock down" started I’ve been stitching more of my Cocoa Sampler, (from Cross Stitcher magazine) and it’s getting pretty close to a finish now!
A reminder of how it was looking.
|Now I've added the white stitches and the Owl is|
finished except for the dreaded backstitch!
|also finished the green and blue chequerboard pattern!|
I really like cross stitch but I only have two projects on the go. I want to stitch more but can't find anything suitable. I'm going to stitch a flower for Claire (Aimetu's Stitching) but I haven't found one yet. So there will be a few more cross stitch projects in the pipe-line.
If you are passing by on Instagram you can find me as @flashinscissors.
