A Pretty Trio...

My collection of Brown-Eyed Blooms continues to grow...
The first two were made last week... Gotta love the hexy print yellow...
This one was stitched while sitting at a hospital appointment with my BF... had a few interested onlookers... stitching in public always intrigues people, don't you think?
 Karen at Journey of a Quilter is our wonderful One Flower Wednesday host, you can pop over here to see other pretty hexagon flowers... OFW is a great motivator, keeps me making a flower most weeks & slowly growing my collection!
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~*
A few weeks back I committed myself to stitching on Charmed I'm Sure on a Wednesday evening, & also a weekend evening... just want to get those stitcheries done... going to use my Q-Snap frame tonight & see if it's easier than my hoop ... Thank You to my readers who suggested it; I had quite forgotten I had it♥
I am going to be totally annoying now... have a little BRAG in fact... I have fully & totally finished my sewing for one of my Christmas swaps... yep, all that's needed is wrapping paper & that sleigh... & I'm so excited to be starting another Secret Sewing item tomorrow.

This hibiscus is slightly past its best, but take a look at the size of it...
 OVER SEVEN INCHES!!
They are big curvy girls... a bit like their owner... ha ha

Oh nice flowers to add to your garden..
What a fabulous Hibiscus Anthea. Like what you wrote "Big and Curvy " sounds like me too.
Like you I have my Christmas, Mini and "Let's Celebrate swaps done because I want to sew some quilts for NSWs folk.

My Sister Made Me Do It.... said...

still loving the brown-eyed flowers.......yes, you are right....when I was waiting for my car to be serviced one day I had my Oz hexies out and had a couple of people looking!

Sandi said...

Well done, I love that - getting things done - feeling...big and curvy is perfect - a skinny and small just wouldn't have the same impact...lol

Fiona said...
