Embroidered Centres for Hexagon Flowers




This week  I was picking out small scraps of material and making a selection of centres to use in the hexies.  I have quite a lot of small cream scraps and thought that using too many of them would look a bit bland. So I decided to do a floral embroidery on some of the centres. I'll just scatter these through the quilt among the hexies with plainer centres.

I am taking part in the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap

I must do something different next week as I risk becoming obsessed by hexies to the exclusion of all else.

And this week's reading.  Not a new book but Barbara Kingsolver's first novel "The Bean Trees", from 1988. I've enjoyed most of her books.

Also found a DVD of a 2010 movie which though terribly sad was well worth while.  It was "Matching Jack".  Just how does a family cope with finding out their child has leukaemia, I'll definitely watch this film again.
