Hexie Weekend

Feeling a bit better - thanks to all who sent prayers, good wishes, and concern.  I appreciate each of you!

Before I got too sick to sew, I got this far on the hexie piece:
I still think it needs something, so I toyed with the idea of some embroidery around the flowers as we were to do for the Soupçon QAL.  But came back to this - appliqued leaves:
What do you think?  These are just pieces laid down to see the effect.  I'm considering the lighter green you can see on the top right and left flower.  Not sure.  I'll be interesting in hearing what you think.

The linky is below - would love to see your eye candy, hexie or otherwise.  Closes Monday, midnight.

And look what I found visiting Mary's great link this week. Another linky party! It happens every second Saturday of the month:

You are right it does need a little something. I do like your idea to add a few applique leaves.

I like the appliqued leaves is several colors. Very sweet little piece!
Angie... I don't know how I missed your 5 year Anniversary Post or that you weren't feeling well. Congrats on your anniversary and to all the winners! I'm glad to hear your feeling better too. Hugs, Karen

Wow, thats beautiful. I liked the extra touch that the leaves brought. You could keep them different colours. If I should have chosen one colour, I would have made the dark ones. Have a nice weekend!

Definitely the leaves! I love the colors in there, but the dark leaves add some definition. Glad you are feeling better.

Too sick to sew -- now that's sick!! Hope you continue to feel better -- like the leaves but the darker ones pull my attention away from the charming flower motifs.
