handy finishes

Just wanted to quickly share a couple of little finishes...

These are the first two (of four) swaps for the Fat Quarter Retreat.



I stitched the little embroideries onto some Oakshott cotton, combined them with some pretty scraps and then hand stitched the hexies together.


I have machine sewn them onto the teatowels and put a random lone hexagon on the other edge.

I hope you think they're pretty (just in case you're going and get one)!


So two done and two to go...


Linking up to the fabulous There & Back and TGIFF at Color Me Quilty this week:

  17. I think they are lovely but they would be a tea towel in name only, to pretty to actually use!!
