A Finish and a Change of Pace

 I have finished the evening gown and it looks much better than in the photo. It was fully lined and the bodice is boned so a bit fiddly and I'm glad it's done. She will look lovely when it is pressed, and she has the right shoes, bra and jewellery.
  I have also been working away at the hexagon quilt and have now got a sore spot on my fingers from pushing the thin needle through all the fabric layers. So it's now time for a change of pace and some applique which will hopefully use a different part of the fingers when stitching.
I've prepped the pieces for the second Chester Criswell County Quilt and will get it done in the next day or so as the third block is due out very soon.
  I'm back on night shift again tomorrow too so I hope everyone behaves and we have some quiet nights for a change.
See you tomorrow.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Looks good to me! I think I might have to try some hexies too.

Thanks Sharon. I started it when I needed a hand stitching project and I had lots of 2.5" sqs to use up. I want it finished as I have more projects to work on now. lol

The dress looks lovely and I like the layout of the hexies!
