Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Brinton Hall

I got both side strips added! And I am filling in hexies on the top and bottom now. After that is done, I can think about the borders. Just for fun, here is a picture of the back. A few of the paper hexies have fallen out but most are still in there.

This will be a nice bit of hand stitching to work on after Easter dinner today.

Linking up with Kathy’s QuiltsQuilting is More Fun Than Housework

    Those are a lot of hexies! You must have the patience of a saint. It is the prefect way to frame those 16th century prints, though. Great idea and pretty result!

  6. Loving all those scrappy hexies! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

    I am also looking forward to some late afternoon stitching to wind down this afternoon. We are having a house full for a late lunch and it gets quite noisy lol.
