As I was working on sewing the minuscule hexagons together for the flowers, I realized that it wasn’t that much fun. The small needle was too small and it was easier with a longer needle, but still no fun. So I’m only going to make four flowers for the needle book. I don’t need flowers on the back cover or spine. They’ll be a feature for the front. Here are the three I have done, and a few basted hexagons of the green path fabric. Only the orange flower left to go.
I was planning on a white/light hexagon with a fussy-cut motif for the center of the four flowers, but I’m not finding anything suitable in my stash. I thought the fabric I have them on above would work, but it’s not precise enough a motif. I’ll keep looking. I haven’t had time with the kids on Winter Break.
Also, I see, especially in the photo, that the stitches are showing more than normal (and they’re about six on each edge, not seven). I hope the fabric will relax a little when I take the papers out, as I do plan on taking the papers out.
There will be a blog post for 2017 plans, but it’s not done yet. I do plan to backdate it to the first. Try not to freak out about it, my single blog follower. ;)
