Laborday weekend update

Hello everyone, sorry that I have not posted in a while but life as been a bit busy lately, The first week in august I went on a much needed camping trip for a week and feel better for it , it helped me put things in a better view, still not sure what is going to happen on my work , but am going to stay at were I am for right now, been there 13 years and full time work is hard to get and at my age , well lets just say it doesn't happen .
close up of fmo stiches, sorry about color fade , had to lighten pic to show stiches better
490 hexis baised for main project 
As for sewing well not too much got done, all the hexies for my project are based ,started them while on the camping trip, lots of time sitting at the campfire, basting hexies, good times,,  since I have been back most of the sewing I have done is paid work,, hemming pants, skirts etc,, paid sewing has to come first, as it is money, and well needs must be met,,  I have managed to work on my hexi  sampler , trying different fmo patters, I know  I need much more practice that is for sure,  but I am enjoying the process  here are some pics

sampler progress

As for the next month my goals area to finish all the paid sewing I have to do and finish my practice hexie piece and work on the layout for the main hexi project,
Happy sewing to all and hope everyone has a great weekend

Love the colours in your sampler - I can just imagine how relaxing they were to hand-sew while camping - don't you just love hobbies you can take with you ...J
