Thinking out loud, under a quilt.

After digging out this quilt from my Work In Progress boxes,
I can't help thinking about how many hours of work I have already put into this quilt, all the small stitches.....

I spend a lot of my time with hand work and a quilt over my knees these days - it is a good place both to stitch, sew and to think.

Stuffing work in boxes is not a good way to "store" my used time - I need to dig out some more work in slow progress.
I will not, never ever, promise to finish all my unfinished projects,
but I can promise to honour my strength, my time and my work better :-)

Here are all the prepped hexies sorted and ready for the hand work.
I like to sort and make piles :-)

Du store min - dette var litt av et prosjekt! Rett og slett nydelig håndquilting som vitner om stor tålmodighet, og ikke minst en solid dose nøyaktighet :)
Ser frem til bilde av ferdig produkt! Men man skal først og fremst kose seg meg sånt noe, og i hvert fall ikke stresse!
Ha ei fin uke :)

Hi Hanne, can I ask where you got/found the embroidery patters for the hexagons please? I have recently finished my Nearly Insane quilt in red and white and I have quite a lot of fabric left over. I'm thinking the hexagons would lovely in reds.....
Many thanks,
Zeynep
