I've become obsessed with my hexi wall hanging. The green section was from a long abandoned project that became an idea for a wall hanging back in September. That last row of blue is going to be added today. Then the borders have to be figured out.
I was so excited when I received my book, Pieced Hexies by Mickey Depre. After flipping through just a few pages, I spotted the perfect hexi that would become my sun. Honestly, I cannot wait to get started on a project from this book.
It's the embellishing that I am super excited about now and since I know myself so well, I know the borders have to go on first. Even though I do have a few of the flowers ready, they have to wait.
I spent some time this weekend making Taylor's little bag from our quilt show purchases. This pattern had me wanting to pull out my hair. I like straight forward instructions. Tell me to cut this many this of piece A, then this many of piece B, don't make me read your mind. It's an easy bag to sew once you figure every thing out. These instructions have been Judyfied for next time. I'm sure there will be a next time!
