Wool Overload...on dear!

Oh dear...what have I started now...
Look at all this wool...I sure did get a bit carried away when buying this lot. All those gorgeous colours, how could I resist...but... in my defence, I must add, I had already ordered the big balls of wool before my DD Linda gave me the smaller balls of wool !...
After playing around with the colours, I decided this is the way I'm going to go with it...I think the cream wool really sets the other colours off and defines the flower...

This way was way too busy for me, too many colours on the one hexie, plus the flower did not stand out as it should do..these won't go to waste , they can be used as colourful coasters!
Now that I've settled on colours and method, I can do these and get back to my quilting as well..
Brrrr. it's so cold today...the windows are all wet and misty inside from the cold air outside..
Stay warm or cool wherever you may be...take care ...♥

  1. You'll be crocheting for a while now won't you? LOL My grandmother made one similar to that but she put black between the blocks. It looked good too! :0)

  2. I agree that the cream really sets the flowers apart. These are such pretty colors Julia. Hard to believe you are having such cold when we are so dreadfully hot. I'm glad you have plenty of projects to keep you busy where it is warm and cozy. Give my best to Reno.

  9. Snap! How funny - a world apart and we choose the same colour edging.
    I'm trying to make a dent in my stash of cotton yarn. I just realized I'm going to need loads of hexies before I can turn it into "something" - and I hate sewing in threads... Good luck with your crocheting.

  10. It's looking beautiful and I think it looks like the wool has been breeding. At least you won't be short on colours and we must have our palette.
