Jullias Hex Box pattern my version







Jullia
well here they are the sides and top - its is way outta of my comfort zone- there is some purple in there and pink and theres a lot of that deep red I was talking of- I have used mostly Colour Streams threads- in the thicker thread ?? I can think of the name but I think its called Exotic but its so soft and silky to work with and there are such brilliant colours - the ribbon I used on the top of the Box embroidery is actually Bears dying playaround - I even have some of this riotous coloured ribbon left cant think what dye I used but hey ity is such a close colour match to the Colour Stream thread that I like that I was rapt with the result and then thought heck what can I use this on and so here it is......... I am so totally not sure I like what I have done and thats not lokking for copmpliments I really mean that - the one side with the topiary is driving me crazy- and I can see me either pulling it all off or taking bits and pieces of- its way to top heavy!! aand not "me" at all so its not going to remain there is it gggggg
Anyway I hope you are not to put off by my version of your pattern thank you for giving us this terrific pattern and I really really love yours!!
love n hugs bear xoxoxoxoxoxxoxoxo

unbelievable! those colors are magnificent. You dyed them? Man, it's time to keep notes of the formulas cause everyone will want to know how you did them. This box is going to be quite the stunner!

Keep going, and finish it off, it will be gorgeous!

Bear, you wanted to delete that extra piccie. Go into edit post, click on the photo and a box should come up around it, then hit delete.

Breathtaking! You must have the patience of a saint! Although I don't know why we think they were patient people.
