Oodles of Colour.Hexagons Galore.

Top is all done.
A large single bed size.
All hand done.
The quilting will go into the to-do pile ;)
I love the intensity of the in-your-face colours.
Doesn't it ooze warmth.
Joyful and exuberant :)
Always stitching

Bunting. Shabby-chic Lace n Burlap/Hessian with Vintage Lady

Made myself some Buntings after seeing
those made by Suzi Q, over here
She's amazing and has a larger stash than I
Burlap/hessian (Kiwi's call it Hessian)
with dainty doilies
vintage laces
vintage buttons
Mother-of-Pearl ones too.
and a paper whimsy.
Coffee dyed slub linen for hanging.
Still waiting for a good outdoor photo shoot. Too much cloud lately.
So bear with me as I couldn't wait to show you. :)

Oops. Blogger doesn't like the shape of some of
my photos so has turned them.
Anyway, you get the idea.
This is all 3 waiting for their photo shoot. Sometime soon I hope.
Having fun stitching
