Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend!
We had a good one here, nothing spectacular, but I did get all the grass mowed, had a lovely bike ride and found lots of time for some crochet love!!
Want to see what I have been making lately?
I have been playing around with a little idea that has turned into a sweet hexie motif I am calling the 'Puffy Petal Hexie' . I wanted to make a flower that looked solid, really stood out and up from it's background, and with the petals clearly defined. I think this is doing all those things plus it looks very cute! ( in my opinion anyway!:) )
I decided to make a few in my Heirloom cotton, and I am actually loving the slightly vintage vibe these colours are giving this motif. I think I will keep making them and turn it into a blanket.
What do you think of the white edging? I was trying for a unifying colour that will be nice and neat looking when I sew them all together....... I think it helps the colours to stand out a bit more too....
I have a few little tweaks to make to the pattern, (plus about 100 more hexies for the blanket!!) and then I think it will just about be finished.
It is such a good feeling when an idea works out into something similar to what you had in your head, it is very satisfying creatively speaking.
I have another project on the go at the moment too, an order for a neon stripy blanket from a lovely customer in the US, I will show you how that is coming along tomorrow, I think it looks really bright and modern, I will be interested to see what you all think!
Have a lovely crafty day wherever you are!
