I may have been away from my blog for a week or so
but not my stitching.
Far from it.
My hexagon quilt has taken over.
Every spare moment is taken up with hand sewing
the hexagons together.
The diamonds are all stitched together
as can be seen from the photo above.
I held it while Mike took the photo
just to show you that they are indeed all stitched together.
The photo was taken last week
and a dark green border of hexagons completely surround the diamonds now.
Next I will start filling in the gaps with rosettes.
It keeps me occupied while Mike is away.
He's been away in the UK for a week now.
So I am the sole looker afterer
of the Hounds!
In return for keeping me company.
In fact we have just come back from a walk.
We went by car first of all out of the village.
But everywhere is a bit muddy
and when they got back in the car
it was with muddy paws.
I then decided to have a short drive along the river.
Once again the river has flooded over it's banks.
It's done this a few times already this winter.
The photos below were taken on Boxing Day.
It's similiar to that now but without the sunshine.
