Best Friends Forever



 
A little while ago I fell in love with another of Rosalie Quinlan's projects.  Best Friends Forever is a Set of 32 Hexagon Stitcheries which come on pre-printed linen in 8 instalments of 4.
 
 
I bought a few of the packs and put them away for another day (as I tend to do)  I recently sat gazing at my shelf of pretties and my gazed stopped at this bundle of Lulu Roses and instantly I decided that the fabric would be perfect for the BFF BOM.
 
 
So I started to stitch and as usual I didn't stick to the rules and started at Month 7 - Just because I loved the little babushka's.  I can't explain to you how much I am enjoying stitching these.  They are bringing me so much joy.
 
 
I'm not sure if it is the fact that they are pre-printed so are less labour intensive or if it is because I have fallen in love with their quaintness but I can tell you I am totally in love.
 
 
 
This will be a long term project for me as each one takes a little while to stitch but I am happy just to pick them up as I feel like it
 
 
I think they look gorgeous with the fabric.  The idea is that there are a number of blanks around each stitched hexagon.
 
 
The large prints in the range are perfect for fussy cutting
 
 
Don't they look pretty?
 
And even nicer with their stitched sisters
 
I can't wait to do more.
 
Hugs,
