Monday Stitching

We had a change of venue this month, and all trooped over to Kim’s beautiful home……aaAaand had a play in her New Studio!! Like to see??

20131022-142037.jpgIt was a delightful day; catching up on news, having quite a few laughs; revelling in Kim’s gorgeous studio (and dreaming of how we could change our homes to accommodate a room just like it!!);

20131022-142438.jpgand seeing what we are each working on.

20131022-142624.jpgThank you so much for all your lovely comments about my little hexagons. Here’s what I did at Monday stitching…..

20131022-142747.jpgYes, four!! They come together so quickly, don’t they? (I do realise I’m preaching to the converted in a lot of cases – bear with me, I’m just discovering the wonderment!!)

I’m just trying to decide if I do them with white joiners…

20131022-142947.jpg…or grey…

20131022-143029.jpgI’m really liking the grey!! (And I’m well aware of what Miss Helen’s opinion to that will be!!)

Loving the Aurifil thread. I’m just using short lengths; it’s a fine thread, sews beautifully and hides itself well too….

Linking up with Blossom Heart Quilts for Sew Cute Tuesday!

Happy stitching

    How long is her studio going to stay like that???? I like the “CRISP” white to show off your bright colours!!! definitely NO grey!!!! (you know me well!) By the way I bet everyone is envious of that gorgeous studio!!!

  3. Fabulous studio ….. and as for your EPP ….. tee hee hee, I’m laughing at your conversion!!

    I love your hexies and have always done them by hand – how do you do yours that the stitches do not show – you said you do not do all the tiny whip stitches – can you share how you do this? perhaps a tutorial or a link to one as you do? Love the studio photos I would love to have a super cute room but hubby and I share a room for sewing/computer he in one corner and I have 3/4’s of the room so I make allowances to decoration 🙂

    p.s. when I say I do them by hand I do not do EPP but print out fabric with Inklingo but at times I would really like to do them EPP instead.

    Looking good Ms. Meredithe! Good luck deciding on a joining color — that’s always the hardest part for me.

    Beautiful studio indeed! My cats would love to knock everything over in there … lol. Your EPP hexagons are so crisp and perfect – I can’t wait to see how you will incorporate them together.

    I would LOVE a studio like that! Wonderful! The hand work is so beautiful. I am reading about your EPP success with much interest! I too have been reluctant to commit myself to that much whip stitching.:)

    Thank you for your company on Monday. Wow the photos are great! Is that really my room?!?! I reeaallly like the grey fabric x

    Ooh yes, I like the grey too! Contrasting, but not too bright.

    LOVE the hexies…I haven’t tried these yet myself so may be something for next year. I agree with you on the backing…the grey looks best and it’s more practical!! Look forward to seeing more 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
