If you would like to see some more Hexie Flowers pop over to visit Karen and the ladies. Maybe you could join in too!!

The construction work has fallen behind. Will have to try and build more this week to catch up.

I  joined Christmas Fun Blog to encourage me to get Lynette Anderson’s stitchery finished and on the wall this year.
After sewing for months I have 6 blocks sewn together. (only 2 to go) I was very pleased with myself. THEN when I pressing my blocks I scorched them…. Not Happy… Sad smile

Thankfully I found how to remove the stain on Google. So after a vinegar wash the stain DID go… Smile

Happy Stitching Maria.
