I've finished 2 of my smaller crazy patchwork hexagons, they just need wadding and backing now.

These hexagons are a lot smaller than my usual size measuring only5 inches across the flat sides.

Now I am looking forward to embellishing this yellow one.

Above are some more templates that Tom has cut out for me, these are a bit bigger in size, 7 1/2 inches across.
Although the smaller one's are fun they really don't allow for a lot of embellishment so I'm looking forward to seeing what the larger one will look like.

Nothing much else happening here, sweltering yesterday like the rest of the country and quite nice and cool today with some well needed rain.
Tennis takes priority now and Wimbledon is on the cards every afternoon for the next 2 weeks so sewing may take a bit of a back seat.


  1. hubby is a tennis watcher and he told me the heat over there is really bad and the hottest ever seen during these matches. i love all your work and these are beautiful

  2. Love what you've done with your hexagons.
    Thought the first one was so beautiful and delicate and then I scrolled down and there was the wonderful blue one. Now I don't know which one I like the best.

    Zip has been followinf the tennis matches. It's one of his favorite sports...for watching, not playing! Ha-ha!

  3. Really pretty hexagons! The second is as pretty as the first.

  4. Love your beautiful embroidery.

    Re your previous post, was the owner of the puppy there, or had it been tied up and left. Several of us were concerned.

  5. Once again a Wow! love this work and can't wait to see the yellow one worked up, summertime seems to be slowing us all down!

  6. I so admire such handiwork ... very beautiful. Best wishes, Tammy

  7. Loving your crazy hexies! Brilliant!

  8. These are beautiful. They're so unique.
