I have really enjoyed my yellow quilting activities this month inspired by the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge. Every spare stitching moment has been spent on my "Hexagon Honeycomb", which is my UFO for this month, and my current yellow project.
I just love this yellow photo! I was soaking up the sun in my backyard, sipping a lemonade, and enjoying some relaxing hand stitching. Can't you just feel the warmth of the sun and smell the fresh lemon?!? Lean in a little closer to your computer...can you smell it now?!?
I decided to "big stitch" the hexagons using perle cotton, and I just love the texture it added to this project. I have only done this once before (click here to see that project) and found it hard on my hands. But I have been admiring the projects of some of my favorite bloggers who have done some big stitching, so I convinced myself to try it again. I liked it much better this time. How do I know that? I was very sad when the stitching was finished!
Check out these great "big stitch" projects:
Lurline's blog, Julie's blog, Lori's blog, and Jane's blog.

Now I am trying to figure out how to bind the pointy edges of my hexagon quilt...any suggestions?!?
Here is a great Canadian band "Great Big Sea" playing one of my favorite songs (and notice all the yellow accents in the video?!?).
