It only took a year…….

These African flower hexagons have been waiting since last August when I made them up to be made into something….although I must admit I have enjoyed looking at this pile of gorgeousness as I strolled by it and I also must admit to giving them a little stroke in passing Smile It’s just amazing what you can do with just scraps left over from other finished projects…..I had a basket of odd balls, half balls and bits that I just couldn’t throw away, now I’m glad I held onto them Smile

Finally I started joining them together Friday night after work and I couldn’t stop at just one row lol, I’m now up to row five and it’s looking just beautiful! This is going to look just lovely over the end of my bed, just another 15 rows should do it??? Will show more pic’s as I progress on this one, I have funny feeling this one is going to sewn up very quickly Smile

It's really beautiful. The soft grey works so perfectly. I imagine all those odds and ends hold lots of different project memories.
