Most times when I'm travelling I complain about the poor light in the hotel/motel/B&B rooms...which can make it hard to sew. But not this time...
So tonight for FNwF, I brought out those hexagons that I bought at The Liberty Store in London, way back at the beginning of our holiday. I have stitched all the blue ones over paper and have now done some pink ones...but I still have a number of pink ones to go. So using the ones that have been stitched already, I played around with positioning...still no definite idea of how I will finally arrange them, or what I will make...but the cushion idea is still a favourite.
There's still a little pile of the pinks to do...
And I did a few rows on the knitting project I have been working on...I bought yarn in the first week we were here and the idea was that I would knit strips of squares that would eventually be sewn up into a blanket for the needy. A number of ladies in my knitting group make blankets this way and they have my highest admiration...as I have found it so boring, and I haven't even made one strip yet! And yet these ladies make lots of these rugs each year...all garter stitch because it sits flat.
But I will plod on for now, but may experiment after I've made 1 strip...perhaps pick up stitches along the long edge and change over to circular needles and maybe try some different stitches?
So here it is; 50 stitches and 50 ridges per square and I bought 5 different colours.
Thank you to Cheryll once again for organising this night which sees people from all around the globe working on various projects and then sharing what they have done.
