It has been a while since I picked up needle and thread due to a constant headache which lasted for over a week. Then I lost my stitching mojo and my projects , so close to being finished, were left unattended until now.  I have been fiddling with my hexie table topper borders trying to mitre the corners. I slip stitched 2 into place and have the other 2 pinned. Any ideas for the hand quilting once sandwiched?

Gee, some of those flowers disappear in that pic! Too many light value fabrics I suspect. Too late now.

This afternoon I found some Christmas stitching I had started earlier this year. Or was it last year? Hmmmm. So, I have been stitching this block the past hour or so.

And.....I finished another book. I love Philippa Gregory's books and this is her newest one which may be the 1st of a new series. I must look at her website.

Angel Blessings.


  1. Hi Ondrea so sorry to hear that you haven't been well,sending angel hugs my friend.
    Maybe with the hexies you can hand stitch a small hexie inside ,I did that with a Lynette Anderson hexie topper and it looks fantastic,I can send you a pic if you like,hope you have a lovely evening Ondrea xx

  2. Thinking how to quilt a project can be a challenge. Another pretty stitchery happening.

  3. Be kind to yourself my up when you need to, and with regards to the quilting I find just leaving something sit for a while and doing something else lets my creative mind rest a bit and then a spark of inspiration comes easily. :-)

  4. Sorry to hear you have had a headache for such a long time Ondrea. You must need some quiet time to just be. I am sure a quilting idea will come. Beautiful stitching you are doing.

  5. Hope you are feeling better Ondrea. Love your hexagon table topper. I like Philippa Gregory too. I'll have to look out for this one. Christine xx

  6. Sorry to read that you have had a nasty headache. I find deciding how to quilt hexies is difficult which I why I knotted my tablecloth! Love the stitchery. xx

  7. Headaches are horrible! I always am boring and quilt around the centres and flowers.....looking lovely xx
