Hexagons and cross stitch!

I managed to get some more hexagons made over the weekend so I have 13 flowers now for my second row.

It feels like all my projects at the moment are big ones, so on Monday night I had a look through patterns and found a little cross stitch pattern that I knew I could complete quickly ...

Me and Thee, source unknown
Stitched on 32ct linen with Cottage Garden thread No 504, Lilli-pilli
 I really enjoyed doing something different and quick and, as always, loved the look of the variegated thread.  Instead of sewing the current year I put 1993, the year Paul and I married, I thought it fit with the sentiment of the stitchery, and I think I will put it in our bedroom.  (It is so small you probably have to click on the photo to see the date!)  I now have to decide how to finish it, I think I will start by looking for a cute frame.  So ...  almost a finish!!
Take care and happy stitching, Wendy


  1. I'm in the same boat as you, my projects are big ones. Sometimes you need that finished feeling. Hexies are looking great....

  2. Lovely work. Your hexie flowers are growing beautifully and your x-stitch is delightful.

  3. I love your cross-stitching ! !
    Irish hugs!
