Chook Shed Party Week end

Thank you Chooky for hosting the chooksheds 4th birthday,I had lots of fun sewing all weekend with everyone,to see what everyone else got up to go here.


I began early Saturday morning stitching a few felt circles ,later I went and watched my grandsons soccer practice.


  Back home I stitched some  felt  circles then again in the car on the way to Phillip island. Once unpacked and settled I began stitch some of my Stonefields hexies.

                                        




Sunday morning I began early making a curtain for Mathew ( my eldest grandson 22) 

                                



Then back to sewing a few more hexies. After lunch a walk between showers ,drizzle and rain . Later I laid out some of the hexies onto the background fabric and started stitching them on.


      
                      Finally out of moth balls :))

                 Laying them out     

Starting to stitch them down.

 


Happy stitching.............

You made wonderful progress on your hexie blocks and border.
It's looking beautiful!

Your hexie borders are gorgeous and just perfect Helen. I'm so envious of your workshop with Wendy Williams... I take it the felt circles are for your Round the Garden quilt. Please tell me you are making it. I have the pattern and could do with a dose of inspiration. Lovely photo of your grandson..... xxxx
