Back to Blogging and Stitching

I didn't realise that it hads been over a week since I blogged--sorry.
My white cloth had a bit of a set back in-as-much as that I hit a wall--couldn't think of what to do-no inspiration at all.
Well I am glad to say that has passed and I am off again this time making hexagons.
I had made 5 of them in different colours and textures and then I thought that I would make one using French Knots-umm that looks good but now there are 6 of them.
I was always taught that everything is grouped in odd numbers to look good--what to do now.
Well I have started to do something else but you will have to wait and see what that isThe hankie corner in the top right hand corner belonged to my mother and the small section that is showing at the bottom left hand side is one of Stephens that I nicked out of the drawer-so Susan will have a piece of both of them in her cloth.
This section is part of the last block that I have to make and then I will add it to the others that are already joined together.
I can now visualise what it will all look like when it is finished.




The rest of my week has been spent playing with my new camera.

It is hard to get used to all the new technology that goes with something new.

But I am trying as hard as my tiny brain will allow me to.

It's looking good Doreen - lovely textures and delicate colouring. I know what you mean about technology. I had a CD with my camera and haven't even looked at it yet. I like the instruction manual in one hand and the camera in the other! Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to look at the CD!

I think adding both hankies is a wonderful idea....I know what you said about the odd number and I have heard it too but there is something about the varied colour and pattern you have used here that makes it excellent as it is....

I know what you mean about the odd number thing but, since you grouped them in 3's they read as an odd number. They look good and I really like the one covered in the french knots. Nice about the hankies.

Lovely work Doreen. I still have not had time to play properly with my new camera, I cart the manual (thankfully in book form) around with me hoping.....I am working out lots by myself but I know following the manual would be better, Cheers

Can't wait to see what else you're going to add!

Beautiful work Doreen! Saw your before and after pic with your cameras - big difference - enjoy it.
Glad you're feeling better now.

lovely Doreen. I really like the way that you have created the hexagon with stitch only.
