As usual, I thought I would accomplish more hand stitching while I was away on my training course than I actually did. There were evening evening group activities, plus I spent some of ny solo time doing my Christmas shopping (point and click is the way to go). I even hauled the hexies to Nebraska and back, but I am always afraid of losing needles on the plane, so I knit during plane rides and only sewed hexies in the evenings.
I have said before, i am enjoying the technique and doing it properly, but I don’t see that it will ever be my favourite. Some people make amazing designs with fussy cut hexies but I tend to buy mostly blenders. I am really happy with this round, and am looking forward to getting the next round done. I used a variety of greens for the leaves to add interest.
As you can see, the vines are somewhat free form, and i love the sentiments behind this text fabric
