I have been thinking about doing some patchwork for a while but have not got round to it. Then this little kit arrived on the cover of Mollie Makes. I have never made any of the kits you get free on magazines, though they may get made one day. I am not that interested in making them I suppose. But this one has been made! The paper hexagons are small-about two centimetres across so it didn't take long. The felt is horrible-like felty cardboard but it looks ok. I cut out the mounted hexagon and used cotton more matched to the materials but other than that I followed the pattern.Lynne Hoppe talking about them. They are nice to use-like gouache with a chalky finish. As you can see I have not taken a very refined approach to this painting. Just wanted to paint! The paints have the weirdest smell. A bit like dettol, so you get a kind of clean feeling when using them.
Anne took me to her favourite fabric shop. I love the little playing girls.
