Design Wall Monday

When my mind is full, 
my hands need to be busy.
I tried sewing at the machine but that was a fail.
I can work on my Pieced Hexies,
stop when I need to just think.
There's something very comforting about pulling the needle through fabric.

This is the start of the final blue row. 
I might need to make a few more neutral and gray hexies
but the major parts are ready to sew.
(I just noticed that my purple by the blue is the wrong purple!) 
(Easy fix!!)

As I was working on it last night, 
all of the sudden it was very heavy.
Time to pull out more of the papers. 
Only the hexies that are not surrounded by other hexies
need to have the papers left in them.

When all the pieces are stitched,
I will work on a border to make it a straight edge. 
I plan a solid neutral border (solid as in tone on tone)
and then the blue fabric used in the center of the blue rosettes will be the outer border.

I am so close
and so excited!

Your colors are so bright and happy. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished top. It’s wonderful to have things to do that help calm the mind.
