|Detail of My African woman Charm Hexi|
This week went by so fast. We had a lovely time with our friends from Canada and I am happy to report that our Maple Syrup supplies are no longer at critical levels...
We also celebrated our youngest's 4th birthday. We had loads of fun with the festivities and a bonus for me is that once the dining-room table was freed up I was able to put my Charm hexies down... wow!
As you can see, I have been adding rings around the diamonds. I have not stitched it all together yet, and plan to leave it in sections for a while longer, as it is proving much easier to handle.
Here's a better view of the sections: On the left you can see me auditioning a multi-coloured mini-diamond section. I like the effect: considering this is a charm quilt and the idea is not to repeat hexies, I like the impressionistic effect it is creating.
I still have not counted how many hexies I have used, and still have a whole lot of hexies left to prepare. Final size at this point is anyone's guess. I have been enjoying the process so much, am not concerned about the logistics.
My idea is to keep making hexi-flowers on wednesdays so these can be added to a more random background. And I do not believe I will be adding anymore diamonds beyond this point. But as always, I am open to your suggestions and value your impressions!
Looking forward to visiting my fellow Hexi-flower gardeners this week,
Hoping you are all well and enjoying your stitching,
