Friday Night Sew-In picture

I set myself to work on my hexie for the craft forum swap (this is my first participation after beaming at pictures posted by a few members of the swap) yesterday evening when the phone rang. A friend who we hadn't heard from a while called. It was so nice to catch up. Anyway by the time I passed him to hubby it was already getting relatively late but I got to work on my hexie anyway.
My swap partner Jeanette asked for pastel or neutral colour. Most of my pastel fabrics are baby fabrics so I found a lovely neutral. The idea for the centre design came from the lovely Valentine's card hubby bought me. I had sewn the strips of fabrics together last week-end and didn't get around cutting the heart shape out until yesterday evening. This week was so mad at work that I had no energy left on the evenings. So I finally got to sew the heart (needle turn applique) last night and to do the stitchery around the heart. I have cut the background fabric today so that I can put the hexie together this week-end and send it out on Monday. Hopefully it will be with Jeanette by the end of next week. Here is my centre:
I'll post a picture of the finished hexie tomorrow I hope.



  1. Well done on completing that gorgeous heart for the hexie swap. I am sure that Jeanette will love it. I was also pleased with what I completed and hope that there is going to be another Friday night sew-in next month.

  2. What a gorgeous heart.I can't wait to see it made up in the hexie.A job well done :) Barb.

  3. Very nice heart, your swap partner is a lucky lady. I hope you all had a very enjoyable Friday night sew-in.

  4. I can't even say how much a love this heart! It is phenomenal. What a lucky swap partner you have!
