Old work revisited.

Last week I picked up a piece of work which I haven't touched for months. I began it last year as a way of using up lots of brown vintage fabric which I had accumulated. The hexagons are fairly small, about an inch across, so it was a farly intense piece of patchwork. Because of the way I stitched the shapes together, lots of gaps were left and I suppose at the time I couldn't face sewing up all these gaps!
It's been lovely to work on it again and I'm slowly getting it completed.

The intention is to mount it on a dark green background and then make a border consisting of hexagons - either a single or double row. Then I'll probably use it as a wall-hanging on my landing.
