Something new...

Well hello there!!

I am still not back to normal so been busy doing other craft things other than stitching... I need I lot of concentration for stitching.  So I have been pottering about doing less taxing things!

For some time I have been working on a hexie project... A little quilted throw eventually! Here is what I have been up to with that...

Then a little coffee and cake break!

Did the trick as here is where I am now....

It's growing... Slowly but still growing.

Then Han got me this magazine yesterday...

Something different, maybe?

Kind of liked this... But to go on a pillow/cushion...

Uh huh!! Picked some fabrics.... From stash! 

Traced the design... Lol on Greece proof paper... Well it's like tracing paper! Did the job!!

And off I started!! 

I was not sure how I was going to stitch the pieces on, as in the magazine they are roughly cut and stitched similar to how I did it.  I did not want rough edges so made each shape.

Well my stitching is not the best, but I kind of like the 'rough' look... I think it adds charm! 

And the finished pillow on my sofa!! 

I am thrilled with how it turned out... Go me!! Love trying new things and this was a new thing so yipppeee! Ha ha

I hope your all well and keeping like me! 

Big smiles to you all :) 


  1. Your pillow looks fabulous, well done.
    All those hexi's are stunning, you've certainly embraced patchwork!

  2. Oh I just love the pink patchwork Jacquie. So pretty.
    What a lovely cushion you made right up!
    How are you my friend? I am praying for you.♥

  3. Love the hexi project and the pillow....

  4. Well done..amazing. I love the hexies xx

  5. I love how you adapted the bag design...very clever! Your hexies are growing quickly too. Hope you're on the mend soon x

  6. It looks great! I'm always a bit nervous to try new sewing projects because I suck at sewing lol. I need to teach myself how to use a sewing machine but haven't gotten around to it yet. Now that I'm near a few lns I may look into a class.

  7. The hexies are multiplying! The cushion looks great. You could add embroidered petals and butterflies round the flowers another time, lots of bright colours!

  8. You have been super busy looks fantastic 😍😍
