This old pattern booklet was amongst free stuff at our club meet last saturday, that they wanted rid of.
I took a picture of the cover, though didn't bring the patterns home with me lol .......I just thought the cover was so charming.
Hope the subtle colours come up if you enlarge it.
Before the club meet, I reckon a good half of the members trawl through Cottinghams several charity shops and I was lucky enough to pick up this stash of cotton pillow cases, for 20p each....
Oddly enough I was short of plain cottons for the hexi stash so these single colours will be ideal additions -
And I had a NEED for carbohydrates I think....took a fancy for a crumble....
so bought tasty plums and huge cooking apples at market....
Yes, it tastes great lol and went well with a cold, fresh, fruity white wine
but am on salads now to make up for it lol
Now I could do with hexi advice please.....
Should I iron the hexis before I stitch them together or after?
If I iron them, might they be less easy to EASE in place,
if I haven't got them exactly right on the corners?
So if they are not ironed, may they be more forgiving
at the stitching stage?
I haven't stitched hexis seriously like this for years and years....
but maybe it makes not a jot of difference lol
Any ideas or experiences welcome please!
