I don't know how closely you all can get on the pictures but I try to use as many odds as I can.
Many of the beads don't match in places like the bodies of the dragonflies on this block
and the butterflies on the one below
then there are the beads on the button bug on the penguin block
and the pink flowers I used at the bottom
If you noticed, none of them match
I have done this in several places throughout the block,s to show that you don't have to be matchie, matchie to have a cohesive whole.
It's very freeing when you realize this and makes for a whole lot more creative fussing.
here are my hexies so far all sewn together and spread throughout.
I see it getting much bigger as I continue to use it to demonstrate the stitches in class and use it as a teaching tool I also have a ton more blocks pieced together.
I hand them out to newbies who haven't a block to work on
Oh dear, it looks like I have run out of done blocks! I must finish a few more of these, darn the luck ;)
