International Hermit and Stitch Weekend  May 2016 Part 1

 is on the blog Random Ramblings

I have crazy quilting hexagons bases sewn for over a year.  All that needs to be done is embroidering and embellishing with beads and other things.  Finding International Hermit and Stitch Weekend is wonderful.   I have decided to take part with the thought of finishing one a month.  Thanks Joyce for this link up. This is the hexie next in line to be worked. DSCN2220

Baby sat three beautiful children again today.  When my daughter came home, she stated only 5 more days of practical.  She still has school after her practical two days a week. That is better than five days a week.  My son dropped in for a visit today.  The girls had a great time running around.


I did manage to prep part of the pomegranates and a few more leaves today.


Happy Sewing Hugs,

DAY TWO: Drop and Give Me 20

It seemed as if I spent the entire day embellishing one seam on my Hexie block. 

 First I could not decide what type of thread to start with.   

Next I had a difficult time deciding what colour to use.  (Finally decided, sewed the basic row, didn’t like it, took that out, sewed it again using a different colour. Looks a little better.)

Then I was visiting with a friend at her home. Forgot to take the embroidery floss. 

Anyway this is what I finally came up with.DSCN2007

I need to decide on something to sew now and not wait for tomorrow. I think that was part of my problem. I could not pinpoint exactly what I wanted to do today so I just floundered around.

Tomorrow I will be sewing on my 7 1/2  blocks. There I said it. Now I just have to stick to it.
