I've been occupying my time yesterday and today with handwork.
Oh how I love my handwork!!
Well I pulled them out...appliqued a few more while watching football yesterday.
They're really fun to do! I'm not sure how many I've got cut out, but plan to make this a nice large lap size and it will hang on a wall someday. Someday. Lots more to go and obviously it's not at the top of my handwork pile!
Then last night...I was up late readying this.
Yes...my hexie box is ready!
This little bead container is just perfect for holding the 1" hexagon templates, thread, scissors, etc. I can tote this around!
I've been collecting Liberty of London tana lawn prints for quite some time...readying for a super scrappy hexagon quilt. I am inspired by Pam Holland and am blatantly copying her idea of a super scrappy Liberty Hexagon quilt, with her blessing. You can see hers in the right hand column of her blog...she's posing in front of it. STUNNING! The vivid colors and the faded colors and everything in between. I think it will be enjoyable. And I snagged a roll of the Liberty prints that Kaffe put out as well. So it will be a colorful sight to behold! I think this may be my "oh crap it's cold and snowy and I don't wanna leave the office for lunch so I'll eat in" project. Last winter I knit socks, but dang it if someone didn't always come up to me and ask me all sorts of questions about sock knitting and I'm still a newbie! I need to concentrate! It was distracting! But basting hexagons....I can carry on a conversation while I work on this project!
Today is Monday, so I spent time with And They Sinned. You may remember last week I joined in stitching this with Mark Lipinski, and there is now a Facebook page for those wishing to join in! This could be a ten year project for me since it's a Monday only thing for me as of now. Here's my progress.
I do love handwork! And it does bring me happiness! But I gotta share the love and spread the joy among lots of things! One day I'll have some finishes!
