I am still recovering, the cillin kicked in and my lungs are clearing, but it tires me out.
So, I spend more time on the couch resting, but try to do things around the house to keep my body moving and my lungs working. I look forward to some warm days when I can get out and take some walks again.
I worked a bit on my hexagons. It is all hand sewn, no paper, so takes a lot of time. I wanted to see how the golds looked around the outside and am happy with the results. I will continue to use what greens and reds I have and use the same gold fabric for the outer border. I like how the diamonds look like they are sitting on the background. I had to take a side picture, but it will have the triangles going upward for the length. Each Hexagon is 20" in length.
Yesterday I wanted a break and something fun and goofy to do, lol. I found this design on a coloring page, I was looking for peace sign ideas for my daughter. But, I saw this and just had to try it in fun colors. I used heat and bond to iron the pieces down and dmc floss for sewing. I am doing raw edge and once it is all sewn down, I will add the fun details. There will be flowers and peace signs on the car and I may even add a kitty laying on the top;) The girl has an afro, but I thought I would give her long hair and a floppy hat. It is just something fun that I can add to, as I go.
