'Piece Yourself Together' Tuesday... Re-Visiting An Old Project


I seem to have the luck lately of finding the unexpected, at a time when I'm looking for something in particular. Today's EPP post fits in with that.

Back around the time of the Australia Day weekend, I was looking for something in my tubs... and just take a look at what I clapped my eyes upon...
My brown-eyed hexy flowers!

I was making these before the Scrappy Hexy Quilt really took hold of me... the last time these saw the light of day was August of 2015!

The original plan for these beauties has been changed... there's no way I'm going to make a second handstitched hexy quilt... no way... SO, an alternative plan will be made.
Just to knock off the dust from this project, 4 more flowers have been stitched in the last week & added to the stack...
The existing five basic colours will be continued... oranges, greens, yellows, purples & pinks.

Maybe I need to stop looking for things, so I don't find any more UFOs lovely surprises tucked away in my storage area!

Definitely a nice surprise to come across these forgotten hexes. They look great and I'm looking forward to seeing them made into something beautiful.

I'm on board with Susan & Michelle -- love the brown centers! Can't wait to see what you will do with these. Looks like quite a pile already. Why not make a hand-stitched hexy quilt?

LOL that's the trouble when you tidy up or check out a box you haven't looked at for years ( in your case )...
