Well I certainly can't when it comes to fabric! So this is how I ended up with 3 metres of the above for just £10.00 last summer but when the package arrived I was a bit dissapointed to see they were metallic & shoved them in the cupboard thinking I'll make use of them some day.
Last week I came across this fabric again whilst looking for something else & saw it in a new light........wouldn't it be great for fussy cutting hexagons with all those different designs in the stripes?
I had been admiring all the beautiful hexi-flower gardens growing over the last few weeks & this was the perfect excuse to join in too! I believe the inspiration came from Karen who has encouraged stitchers to complete a flower each Wednesday & gradually watch their gardens grow, since then many more have joined in the fun.
I've been having great fun seeing how may different flower patterns I can create with this one striped fabric. I don't think I'll be setting these out in a Grandmother's Flower Garden layout though as it may be a bit too heavy on the eyes.......maybe applique them to a white background?
With all this hexi excitement, I haven't neglected my Klosjes as I'm still making up blocks of nine & managed a few more spools last week.
New total: 116 Klosjes (81 of which have been stitched into blocks of 9)
