Summer Stitching

Hi Everyone!
Well summer's just about in full swing around these parts, picnics at the river, camping, concerting, nature walks with the pooches, and as much scooting as possible, but how about something for those warm summer nights when all you want to do is sit very still in front of the air conditioner? I have just the thing for you, the Wild Olive Summer Stitching Club! Click over read all about it, it's really, really cute, here's what we've done so far...

I love the sweet little faces which are Mollie's signature, and this embroidered hexie project looked like the perfect, not-a-lot of hassle thing to do for the summer (along with a few other things, because you know I've always got several crafty pokers in the fire at once), and at the end of July, I'll have a summery little mini quilt to hang on the wall, just in time for my birthday, yay!

Here I am, all set up! I used Mollie's color choices as a reference and picked a similar, though not exactly the same pallet for myself, I like bright, bright colors.

These are the first two embroideries, I stitched them both in less than an hour, a small time commitment with big pay off at the end.

 Hello, little sunshine!

What up, shades?

See? Cute, easy & fun! Have you guys already seen this, who else is participating? Did you know there's a Flickr group in which to share your stitcheries? Yup, right here!

Hope to see you there!
oxo,
Lisa

I've got as far as printing out the patterns and choosing some colours for the hexagons, but I suspect I'll still be making it next summer!

How cute! An easy, summery project sounds like just the thing. Look forward to seeing the end result, too!

I'm doing the Summer Stitching Club too! Your stitching looks great. :)

I also tend to have several crafty pokers in the fire at once, so I'm a little surprised that I'm all caught up!
