Oh to be famous

Funny thing about blogging I only post when we have something show about a project,.. I have not posted for a few weeks, don't have a project completed or at the next stage of completion. It is not that I have not been active or working on them. However it is a pleasure to say that I have been included in a story on Living Creatively you will need to scroll a little but hey it is there.

I have finished the 5th row now on my Hexagon project – must say it is beginning to look fantastic, and even tho there are a huge amount of tiny little pieces that sometimes get tiring drawing and cutting out, every-time that I get a couple more on the top I get excited and think wow this is fun.




You really don't want to know the statistics about how many pieces - however here is the guess..... about 1148 hexagons, or about 6888 seams, or about 138,000 stitches... and that is without doing any quilting.

Yes, I have already read the article - well done - great pics! Do you realise we are the same age? I thought you would have been much younger!

Well done on your quilt - it looks fantastic and I totally admire that you are doing it all by hand.

Great article and the quilt is looking just gorgeous. Fab photo of you too - you young thing - well younger than me anyway! Here's to fame and quilting! Enjoy your break.

Thanks to that story in Living Creatively I found you and your fabulous blog. You are now saved as a favourite!

I know how time consumin the haxagon quilts are - and I am in awe of this stunning quilt.

Gotta love a bloke who likes sew (and well too)!

Congratulations
Colette

Ok, now I think you've turned me off the hexagons. That's a lot of stitchery...
