Winterse Hexjes Week One

Blog hopping earlier today I came across a hexie mystery at Annelies' blog. The mystery is run by AnneLiefs in the Netherlands and is called Winterse Hexjes (Wintry Hexagons)

I just felt my fingers itch to stitch *lol* so I signed up for the pattern clues. The pattern emails are in dutch, but the pictures say enough for a non-dutch speaking person to understand

The mystery has been up and running for a while, but I'm gonna go at it in my own tempo and enjoy every step of the way. 

My sewing room is being used as storage for everything I haven't found a place for since moving, so it is still a complete mess. However I knew where I have stashed some Tula Pink fabrics, and I think I'm gonna have some fun playing with those in this project.

The hexies used in the pattern is 1", but in the mess here in my flat I was only able to find some packets of 3/4" papers, and I don't mind down scaling a bit.

Happy to be stitching something again! And once again linking up with Kathy's quilt and Slow Sunday Stitching.

Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

Nice hexies, they look good in those colours. I know what you mean about mess. My attic room is like that, it's because you can close the door and not look at it all the time. I need to get it sorted before the youngest comes back and wants his bed!!!

There` a part on the emails that you can translate but reverts back if wish to print off. I was disappointed I could not do that but at least could read in English. I`m still sorting what amounts needed while waiting to get to town for my hexagon papers. Happy Stitching.
