Work in Progress

Well I am a bit late joining the hexagon craze that started a few years ago. But over the holidays the stitching I took with me was 1" hexagons. What I will do with it and how many I will make, I do not know. I would like some sort of modern setting or quilt but will have to fossik through pinterest etc for that.

Eli's great work
While I started stitching Eli also started. He made one flower. Chose the colours, stitched the material on, sewed the seams. Well done to him. He wanted something to put his MP3 player on by his bed. He is now talking of making another one so that it will quilt together to form a mat.

I have been thinking of my stitching as I am packing it again, so soon after coming home. This time unfortunately it is going with me to Dunedin for my uncle's funeral. See you after the weekend.

Linking in to WIP Wednesday and other parties here.

  7. Great hexagons.
    I really don't have the patience to do those. But I do admire them greatly when done. Great colour choices.

  11. They are absolutely lovely! A co-incidence? I was stitching on more hexies this afternoon myself! I haven't decided exactly what I will do with mine yet, but it is so relaxing, just making them. ~ Linne

  13. I just finished my hexagon blocks that were taught through the on-line 2012 Craftsy BOM course. I put off making the hexagon blocks since I didn't think I would enjoy it. I quickly found that making the hexagons so enjoyable and relaxing.
