Three French Hens

Over the last couple of days Ive been working on my hexagons still. Everywhere you go to the the shops is just so busy busy with Christmas shoppers, too much hassle for me.

Id rather stop at home with my dogs Scratch and Alice, be creative.
This morning the sun was out which inspired me paint a quick sketch in my sketchbook named "Three French Hens"
Who knows this may find itself in a quilt or some form of textile art, or stay in place in my sketchbook til a later date.
The Elna sewing machine arrived last week which is a great
machine but Ive got to learn to use it and spend several hours reading the instruction manual. I will do this when I have the house completely to myself with no interruptions from anyone and the phone off the hook. I'm one of those that have to take time reading instructions bit by bit to understand them!.
I hope everyone is able to have fun with their sewing and quilting this weekend.

Faith,your Three French Hens are fantastic!! You should upload them to Spoonflower and make your own panel. It would be fantastic. Or submit it to a fabric design company like Moda or Henry Glass or something.
