'Piece Yourself Together'... Yes, I Stitched!

I've finally done it!
For ages (at least 2 years now!) I've been meaning to get back to this project & finish it... now I believe I'm actually in danger of really doing just that!

This fortnight - well, this evening to be exact - I stitched together the flower rows on the right below
 & then carefully removed the inner papers & threads, leaving the papers in the hexagons at the edges. Fiddly, but that's all part of the making.
Removing the papers will make the next stage of stitching so much easier.

The linky will be open from 6am Tues, closing at 6am Friday (W-Aust time)
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

Don't fall over, I've made some things for CTTY too... very easy to make these little gift tags with a panel of images, backing fabric & good old double sided fusible.
 Discovered the panel in my cleaning out & made up the tags while watching 'Restoration Man' on Sunday afternoon.

On the subject of my cleaning out, I'm sure I'll be making additions to my De-Stash page as I go along, so please do check out the page. Most of the patterns & books will be FREE or postal costs only. (sorry only posting within Aust)

 ~Thanks for dropping by & have a great day ~

Hello Anthea,

Pulling out the paper from your hexies is wonderful. It takes plenty of time I found out. Lovely to see your set of Christmas decorations. Have a great week.
Happy days.
Bev.

It's so satisfying getting the papers out and so much easier to work with. I will be linking soon I hope but I need to get over the wedding post first!

Love those hexagons-- especially love the fabric you have used for them too-- I love Anni Downs' fabrics.

Pretty fabrics Anthea. Yes, it's a great feeling when you get to remove the papers. xx

Busy you - how nice to get back to those hexies - I just had to enlarge the pic to see what fabric was in the centres - very nice :-) The Christmas tags are a good idea too - they look lovely.

Great job on the hexies! I love making the 'flowers' but hate sewing them all together. My quilt is a very long WIP. Very Long.
