Pretties!

This is my Speciality stitch RR, that I have received back today, I took part in this RR with some friends on the Crafty Natter forum.
It's an RR with a difference instead of the usual cross stitch, we did a Band sampler and we all stitched 3 bands each and at least one band had to be cutwork.
We were supposed to do the first three bands, I have still yet to finish my top band, and I will add two more at the bottom.

I chose to use a linen called Copper, sorry can't remember any other details about the fabric, and some basic colours which I would like.
I have to say I am really pleased with the result.

An update on my hexie quilt, I have over fifty hexie flowers now and still going on with the fabric, just received some from Norway today.

I am loving doing these!!

Thank you for stopping by
Hugs Rachael xx

I like the idea of rr's... but once burned... :( (I never had a certain project returned one time on an fb rr) Course I wasn't real familiar with the ladies.
hexies just look so neat. Yours are very well done! Good job.
