work in progress

I've had this WIP hanging around for ages.  Now that the piecing is finished I'm a bit more 'in' to it but I was starting to hate this project.  Does that ever happen to you?  Anyway I started this ages ago as a gift for someone (her birthday has now been and gone and still no finished project!) and have finally completed the top and now just have to finish it off.


I won't disclose exactly what it is or who it's for but here are a few pics anyway.


I spent ages yesterday arranging the pieces trying to get no 2 like backing pieces together and the coloured hexagons to be evenly spaced.  Couldn't do it!  Should have probably laid it out before I stitched the hexagons to the backing squares, my best friend even had a go and wound up more frustrated than I did.  Anyway the layout isn't great but it still looks effective.

What beautiful work you are doing. This is the perfect job to escape the horrific weather we are having.
