I also found these great little suit cases at the local Hobby Sew Store. They are just adorable and I had to have them to transport my Hexie's to Basketball and Netball courts all over the countryside..... I can't see the point in wasting precious stitching time between games....*Grin*
They look right at home in there don't you think.
I spent Mothers Day at the basketball stadium in Bathurst so my Hexies came along too. Here is a pic of Jacky Mister in action dribbling the ball. He is the Captain of the Orange U16's Men's Side. I was even giving some of the kids lessons on how to make Hexies.....Who knew!
I am using a white self patterned fabric for my centre stitchery blocks and outer border. I am waiting very impatiently for volume 3 of vignette to arrive so I can see the finished product. I started cutting the Hexies while Bart and I
watched attended the Royal Wedding.... I joked to him that I hope I get it finished before William becomes King......... I might nick name it my Queen Kate Quilt..... As it will be fit for a queen when it is complete......ha ha.
The colour combinations work really well together. It will be nice to see some of the stitchery blocks done......Waiting, waiting, waiting on issue 3!
Until next time, Happy Stitching
