some slow Sunday sewing


Just for a change...
I opted for some hand sewing today rather than machine
I began making up the hexi section of my Green Tea & Sweet Beans quilt




Enjoying each step of the process 
piecing teeny tiny seams
sifting through my fabric scraps 
again 
and again


Taking my time 
feet up 
loving the sunshine




 Such a lovely way 
to spend a quiet sunny Sunday afternoon! 




et voila, one hexi panel - done!
Linking up this week here for 'slow Sunday stitching' and 'oh scrap' here




And here's all the blocks for my GT&SB project so far.
Also linking up with WiP Wednesday here at freshlypieced

  6. I don't know which I'm more envious of, that you have 'actual' sunshine or all these sunny fabrics to play with! It's going to be a wonderful quilt :)

  7. Your GT&SB quilt is growing steadily with lovely blocks. The hexies are a delight - but small!

  8. I like this quilt design and yours is going to be just beautiful; your fabrics have a lovely look, sweet and old-fashioned, just right.

    1. Thank you Kaja! I’m really enjoying having something like this to pick up now & then. Each little block finished is very cute, and it’s lovely watching it all slowly grow! Tempted to just keep going, even though I’d planned for this to be a ‘slow burning’ project! Linda

    1. Thank you Kathy! I’m really enjoying this!
      It’s great to have something I can pick up easily now & then. I seem to have got into a pattern of finishing one cute little block, and then prepping for the next one so it’s all ready next time I get the chance to sit & sew. Linda

  12. I first thought you were making a scrappy hexagon quilt like I am attempting, but see that it's just part of a larger quilt. Quite an interesting quilt too.
