Mum found a bagful of paper pieced hexagons at a jumble sale recently and thought I'd like them. I know it's not really my sort of thing, but their original owner obviously put a lot of work into them so I thought I'd have a go at finishing them off! Don't know if I can put up with all that hand sewing - these are beautifully done - but, hey, worth a try I think.
Nicolette and I did a private swap recently. I sent her lots of flowery fabric (forgot to take a photo before I posted it off) and she sent me a metre of gorgeous orange batik.
The flowery and yellow FQ's were sent to me by non-blogger, Irene, who lives in the UK and has contributed lots of gorgeous red and white blocks.
Thanks Nicolette and Irene.
The weather is horribly hot. I mean horribly horribly hot. Feels like 100% humidity. Too hot for sewing or doing anything quilty, but I have managed to do another couple of stars. I rejected the 2 smaller ones (orphan bin :-( ) and made another couple of big ones!
I like the spikey look.
On Wednesday DH had another check up with his heart surgeon. I took the opportunity to go in with him on our own, have a wander round Périgueux marche (some stunning colours, but alas no photos - too many people) and see if we could catch some of Mimos.
We only managed to catch one act as it was getting far too hot and we needed to get home.
Right, must get going - gite to clean and house to sort out - only a week to go and 25 people descending for the day !
