Slow Sunday Stitching

Okay I finished hand stitching the first seven hexagons for my Bliss quilt. I've started on the next round of twelve.  These will go slower as one of the hexagons is 6 pieces. Here's the first three that I've made: 


To keep the pieces together I'm cutting one hexagon at a time and placing the pieces in a snack bag. I don't know why the fabric in the pink and green hexies looked blurred.  Here on the right is how it really looks.   Cameras!  Ugh.

Again, Julie's videos have been invaluable in showing me how to put these together. Go here to see them.  Her ruler is great for making the curved pieces. I bought it as a birthday present to myself. My DH always wants me to get something I want and say it is from him.  I'm agreeable - lol.

Since I have them on hand I'm using Beth Ferrier's Wash Away Applique Sheets and use the 2" templates from Love Patchwork & Quilting.  They print so nicely in my inkjet printer.  When I've used them all up, I probably will buy some of Julia's or make some more.  So that's what I've been working on.  I'll have to take some time to make my WIP list (I refused to call them UFOs - that's for the ones I haven't seen in ages). Then I'll link to Judy at Patchwork Times whose hosting a UFO Challenge again this year.  Oh, and I'm all caught up with my units for En Provence - did those yesterday.
That really isn't black in there - they are just the darkest purple I had - believe called eggplant.


Take a bit of time to quilt or hand stitch today.  It will give you a few peaceful moments during this busy Christmas season to contemplate the "reason for the season".  Blessings as we start the Fourth Week of Advent.

liking these there are now so many variations on the hexie can see the curved ruler will be a good help

That looks complicated! Your link didn't work so I couldn't see what it will look like.
