The finished hexie size is 2.5inches ( that is 2.5 in along each finished hexie side). They will need to be done in white, cream, calico, pale lemon or pale yellow please ...."
Back to FNWF ........ I also managed to begin some secret sewing for the Valentines Day Swap, and I managed to get a few more of the crocheted squares done for the veranda lap rug together with drawing up an approximate plan for colours and placing ...... unfortunately it appears Bendigo Woollen Mills do not have anything like a slate colour in their cotton range ....... so I'm thinking on that one still ...... All in all a very productive Friday!!
