Here are stitched hexies no 5 and 6
I have also made a few more of the plain hexies.
I have had a few emails asking me about my hexies. Some very observant ladies have noticed that my hexies "appear fuller" or "don't look as thin as the shop sample they have seen" so allow me to share how I am constructing mine :o) By memory the pattern calls for Parlan to be used throughout. Parlan is a thin iron on batting. I love it and use it behind ALL my stitchery projects. (I get my Parlan from HERE in case your interested) I am also using quilt batting/wadding.

It is a little hard to see but if you look closely you can see the thin Parlan ironed onto the back of this panel.
OK, so I iron on the Parlan and stitch away. When finished I trim and layer - stitchery - batting - fabric.
For the "plain" hexies I go - fabric - batting - fabric
The batting/wadding, I feel is adding a nice weight and feel to my hexies.
So this is how I am doing mine. Hope this answers any questions.
Enjoy your Thursday,
