    My hexagon mini "art' work journey.

    Hi there,

    Two weeks ago my mother an I went to a workshop to make a hexagon flower ring. We went to the workshop with the idea it was on de sewing machine. I was shocked. I have never did any hand sewing. But we went anyway.

    The morning went by and I put some hexagons together. My mother learned me quick how to sew by hand.

    Yesterday I found a piece of canvas (normally used for painting). I put my flowers on the canvas and loved it. The colours are more bright.

    Today I sewed the last flowers together. Know I am thinking to add some beading. But the beading lies in my parents house so I have to wait.

    This was my journey of the last two weeks.

    Your flowers on the canvas look like a piece of art, beautiful! You will have to find the perfect place to hang your wall art.

    Hand piecing is so relaxing. I just got a copy of Jinny Beyers hand piecing manual and read it in one evening.

    Love, Love those fabrics. What line are they from? Gorgeous!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    The fabrics are mostly from a jellyroll from freedom fabrics. The greens are from the store I followed the workshop. I dont know which brand it is. And the bright pink I dyed myself.
    Color is my life..
