Hi Everyone,

Where does the week go it's time for another peek at the worlds desks, Wonder what I am talking about then pop over to the lovely JULIA'S  and all will be revealed join in don't be shy we would love to see you...

Thank you all for the kind comments last week   x x

Well I am still working on my stitchery piece from last week... I have just the words to sew... But on Sunday I decided to have a wee play with my Debbie Shore Hexagon dies... Boy can these dies cut... 6 layers of fabric at a time...

Not really done a lot with the end piece but it was fun making them maybe I will make it into a flower for a quilt piece....

My First time of putting them together it's is very relaxing I must say... so I plan to do many more..  as practice makes perfect as they say... Have a wonderful happy week to you all x x x

Thank you so much for your visit....Keep Safe....

Hugs May x x x x x x


  1. that looks addictive fun! happy WOYWW Helen #1

  2. Love those hexagons. Two ladies at our Craft Group are stitching them, one is making pincushions and the other a tray cloth, both very pretty. I haven't the patience so admire you for even thinking of them!
    Enjoy your week

  3. Those hexagons brought back memories. i can remember my mum working on similar for hours. Good for you; I don't have the patience. Those dies must make life a lot easier than hand cutting though. HappyWOYWW Sarah #26

  4. Gosh, cutting out six hexagons at once must reduce the time needed hugely - is it more wasteful doing it that way though? I do love the look of hexies but know it's something I will never patience, you see :-D

  5. They look so pretty but I'm afraid I am like Jan and lack the patience for proper patchwork. x Jo

  6. Hi May. They are lovely. I delight in seeing patchwork - but confess it's something I have never done. Other than some sample pieces when I did my C&Gs
    Take care. God bless.

  8. Pretty patchwork hexagons May, I can't wait to see what you make with them.
    I keep thinking I must do some sewing, I even got my sewing machine out but that's as far as it went!

  10. Fab hexagon patchwork pieces, gorgeous material! xxx

  11. Great patchwork. Hope you enjoy making all the pieces. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x16x

  12. Hi May, it's looking good. How much easier this sort of thing is today, with cutting dies. I remember starting to make one many years ago, and having to cut all the patches & papers by hand!Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #6 XxX

  13. WOW that die sounds awesome and what a lovely start to your patchwork. Thanks for the visit. BJ#8

  14. It's always lovely to see what you are up to working with techniques and materials I never use or are not familiar with... patchwork, I admire your patience to work on that! Thanks for visiting me earlier, hug from cold, rainy and windy Holland, Marit #25

  15. ah, all the pieces look so perfect. The one time I "tried" quilting ( a long time ago) I gave up cutting square pieces. (none of them were the same) :) such is life. The flowers look like they are going to become something really cool. ~Stacy #33

  16. Hi May, Looking forward to seeing your quilting projects as they progress.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  17. Hello May, I love the look of patchwork, but don't have the patience myself, so I've been doing Foundation by the Yard which makes it really easy! Cheating I know, but I'm not a purist :o) Annie C #17

  18. Hello May, your hexies are just beautiful. I look forward to seeing what you make with them. That stitchery in your last post .... the Jenny of elephantz one ... I just finished that about a month ago & made it into a wallhanging. It is a really lovely little verse. Yours looks beautiful May. Thanks for your visit to my blog & the lovely comment you left me Xxxx

  19. ooh I love Debbie Shore as I find her instructions SO easy to understand.
    Looking forward to seeing how these develop
    Thanks for visiting my desk already

  20. Hi May, this is the first time I've visited your new blog and it looks lovely. Well done you, starting off with textiles after doing papercrafting for so long! I love your pretty hexagons. I've never got the patchwork bug but always enjoy admiring other people's work! Thank you for your visit and your nice comment. I'm hoping for a quieter week this week so I can rest as I've got rather overtired with all my recent activities, and who knows, I may get some more art done! I'm glad you like the little tags I've been making for my project. The kittens continue to occupy a lot of our time!

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #35
