Suz-- I'm Back! And I've been Stitching!

Our new service is up and running smoothly. It's even faster, too! Yay!
So, what have I been stitching?
We're having a Fun Friday Tute over at StitchMAP, and the challenge is to make these fabric boxes. I made some before, last March, but made another two.

I think the smaller one looks like a tulip with the ends left standing up..... now there's an idea for a fun fabric flower!
Did I show you the finished Buttonhole Lace on my angel?

I started another one.

See her feet?

Gee, what do you suppose all that organza is for?
The StitchMAP October HEX I'm stitching is this turtle. I've just begun........

A second October HEX is this Under The Sea of  'Nemo' and his purple anemone.

I designed and stitched this for StitchMAP.  It was a lot of fun!

Here's how it will look once it has it's frame.......although I'll be using fabric, not paper.

That's it for now. Hope you've had a fun and creative week.

Thanks. Hugs from Suz

You are good for Stitchmap, and vice versa. I love all the things you showed in your pictures today. Beautiful stuff, and the boxes are wonderful. A group of us are thinking about doing some, since someone found a great tutorial on them. What are you doing with your hexagons when they are finished - all of them, I mean?

I adore the turtle! I can hardly wait to see what you do with him.

Nemo is pretty cool too.

Love that Nemo hexie; the turtle one is fun, too! You had a creative week!

Thanks Ladies!
cq4fun:- I'm planning a couple different ways to use my hexies. 'Nemo' will be framed and going to my sister as a Christmas gift. She was up for a visit, and really liked it.......
I'm planning a purple piece, which, if all goes as planned, will be a large wall hanging, and since most of the hexies I've done have purple, I thought to add them as a frame to the hanging. This may change when I see how they work, and once the purple piece is done.
Several others may be joined together to be a bell pull, or a wreath. I've not decided yet on all their uses, as I don't know what some of the designs are going to be, or which I'll choose to create.

Woohoo.... so much eye-candy.
The turtle is great with the batik fabric, and so is Nemo hiding in the curlique fronds.
Absolutely beautiful.
