Sweet baby Ghoul...

Well I'm blaming Magaly
 for filling my head with Birthday dirges and sprouting peosies of idiots,
but I was up at the break of day sketching for

"Baby Ghoul"
In my more normal moments I am trying my first Hexagon patchwork...
Yesterday "am" I used a die to cut 122 hexagons.
The lady on the telly said they fit together better if you make sure to stop your stitches quarter inch from the corners...
 so I cut a smaller hexagon from card to mark a border before sewing.
 Much easier to line up that way...clever telly lady :D
I now have 8 of these panels in pink...
now for 8 more in blue tartan, and we will see what kind of throw they turn into.
Enjoy :D XXX
