This and that.......

 I finally got a decent picture of the shawl that I blocked last week, the one that I spun the Inglenook Fibers 12 days of Christmas fibers for. Love how it turned out but in this heat won't be wearing it until fall or winter.

And here are the hexxie pieces hand stitched together so far. They're in sections with the flower and part of the white background. I was laying them out to see how many I'll need for an afghan size. I'm thinking 5 flowers across and 9 flowers down but will decide for sure after I get more stitched. Im undecided if I'll put half flowers on the edges or if it will all be white.....will decide that later too.  No stitching at the moment, finger is still sore but I'll be ready with the stick on thimble once it's recovered.  Don't ask me why pictures with the phone sometimes turn when I upload them to blogger - it's not this orientation on my computer. Technology...……


  1. I love the colors and look of that shawl...and certainly understand why you won't be wearing it for some months. :-)

  2. The shawl is gorgeous! It was fun seeing you post the yarn as you spun it. Also love the hexxie layout so far. It tempts me to hunt for my English paper pieces supplies from probably 12 years ago now....

    1. I'm not sure how many years I had those paper piecing supplies. What got me going was a free mini-class at a quilt show over a year ago so this year I decided it was time to give it a try, I'm so glad because I love doing it.


I love your comments - thank you!
