Scenes from my Week

  • Sometimes it's worth having to get up early - love seeing the sun rise.
  • Is there such a thing as too much drizzle stitch?  This embellishment is meant to be a lot sparser than what I have done - however I love the effect of overcrowding, even though it uses up an awful lot of thread. (hoping to do a post showing my sister's birds and my birds from the Bird Dance  project later this month).
  • My sedums are flowering, (which usually hints at autumn) and the bumble bees are loving them.  There is a hive hidden on the golf course behind us, which I suspect is where these ones come from.
  • Some more hexis from The New Hexagon book.
  • I'm having trouble putting this book down, I really enjoyed Orphan X the first in the series, this one is very good too so far.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend.


  1. No! You have shown that lots of drizzle stitch is PERFECT :D Such pretty stitcheries, blocks, and sunrises! Thank you for sharing.

  2. What a lovely week you've just had!

  3. looks like a nice week. My sedums haven't started to flower yet.

  4. I always enjoy these.
    I am with you, I love sunrises.

  5. Your hexis are looking great! Do you have a colour scheme or just going with it?

  6. At first I thought your sunrise may have been a sunset- we have had a few that looked like that recently! The book looks interesting- I am unfamiliar with that author, but I recognise most of the other names on the cover. I must check my local library!
