I’ve turned all my squares into hexagons now!
That’s all for today, folks.
April Sproule led a TextileArtist.org’s Stitch Club using a spiral concept. I felt like this would be a nice project for a friend and asked her for a color palette, hence the unusual-for-me color theme.

A fellow reader has added a special touch to my Willow Movie Theme labels – The Dust of Broken Hearts! Gasp!
