Flakes and Floods

I have been working on the Frosty Flakes BOM from 'As Sweet As Cinnamon' that I talked about in my last post. I have completed sewing the hexagons together and appliqueing them onto a white background. 

 I used two green materials and three red.

I forgot to photograph the self coloured red, but you can see it below.

I do not like the embroidery on the block below. The stitches are too big, making it look crude. I am going to redo this block. This is a very relaxing BOM, which I sit down at night and do whilst watching the TV.

I have been appalled, watching pictures on TV of the floods in Australia. I find it difficult to contemplate that amount of water, travelling at such speeds. I feel very guilty about complaining when the waves come over onto our road. 

Toni from 'Make It Perfect' has compiled a master list of all the blogs in Blogland, holding auctions to help the victims of this awful disaster. Go here to see how you can help.

Thankful Thoughts
As you have probably guessed by now, I just love where I live. I leave you with a picture of a recent sunset. It doesn't get much better than this. 

Till next time.


  1. You have some hexie goodness going on the picture...

    I don't watch the news but I have seen what is going on and it is sooooo sad.

  2. Those blocks are so cute. The embroidery just really sets them off.


  3. Oh those snowflake blocks are going to be so cool! I love that idea for the hexies and combining with embroidery! Thanks!

    Frosty Flakes always remind me of that breakfast cereal, with Tony the Tiger!

    But yours have less calories and are simply GORGEOUS, Tich!

    Can't wait to see the final product!


  5. Your frosty flakes are just wonderful!

  6. Love your FF blocks; they are so cute! Red and Green... my faves. Can't wait to see what you choose for sashing/border. This is a fun BOW.
