StitchMAP Hexagon Challenge.

In February this year StitchMAP started a year long challenge of Hexagons.  Here are my designs and some of the other designs which I've completed as part of the challenge. Along with these designs there would be two other designs to choose from most months.

February, March and April's Hexagons.

'A' with Woven Silk ribbon Roses - February challenge. (not my design), others that were offered was a Celtic knot garden (loads of French knots) and another embroidery flower motif.
March's Hexagons was Flowers - The Australian Wattle and Gum nuts were my design for the Challenge and a Cross stitch rose was also offered.

April's challenge was an Umbrella, Topiary Trees and a beaded Strawberry motif, (not my designs)

 This Queen bee, was for May's challenge (Not my design), also offered was a Redwork Girl and a Shady Lady fabric applique.

 June's challenge was this wonderful Canadian Oak Leaf, (not my design).  Stitched in Felt applique and also in blackwork.  The third offering was Crayon Coloured embroidered wild roses.

July's challenge was my Dragonfly. Which is an element from one of my larger embroidery pieces - Cheerful Flutterings.
Also offered for July was a raised embroidery Butterfly and a spider and his web (often used in Crazy Patchwork).

 August was my Aboriginal inspired Kangaroo and Gecko.

The Gecko is also from a larger embroidery piece, Twines in Nature.

There are still a couple of my designs to be released, but since their still to come we want to be a surprise, so I can't show them here.

some lovely pieces here beautifully stitched. I like the idea of hexies in a hexie but when I tried it mine did not come out even like yours so afraid gave up but now think I will have another go as you have inspired me to try again
