hexie flowers........

I've been plugging away on my hexagon flowers making one or two most evenings.  I took this photo a couple days ago, but never got around to posting.  I think I have 3-4 more done since this.

I am getting a lot faster and more precise with my stitches, but the large muscles at the base of my thumbs ACHE like no tomorrow sometimes (especially my needle-holding hand) - anybody else have that problem when hand-stitching?

I would really love a whole quilt with only flowers, but I might not make it and end up applique-ing them onto a background square.  I hope not though, I really like them nestled together like this!

  1. Achy? It's because you are clutching tightly. I get that when I knit with metal needles. Loosen up.
