I've never been so fixated on a project, but I'm glad I persevered. I think sewing hexies is very meditative and I found that I kept thinking "just one more to sew, then I'll stop for the night". Well several hours later, I've had some very late nights!
I now have to stitch around the outside, onto my background fabric. Tonight I'm going to listen to a speaker - Kellie Wulfsohn at Don't Look Now , at Essendon Quilters with my GF Ms A. So this will be my take along project. Love Kellie's work and her blog.
I've been back at machine sewing some blocks for Quiltville's mystery quilt from late last year- Carolina Christmas. I'm 3/4 of the way through that project. Will post a pic when I've finished the top.
I love the mystery quilts of Bonnie K. Hunter over at Quiltville. The patterns are well thought out and her signature style is stash busting scrappy. She has a great number of free patterns on her site, and has written 2 books of fantastic quilts. I really recommend a look.
I've also started on the Postage Stamp quilt that has a button on the right hand side of my blog. No photo of my progress yet, perhaps tomorrow.
I feel wonderful, last year I hardly put a stitch in anywhere due to long working hours. When I was home I just couldn't be bothered- bite my tongue- but now I've changed jobs and decreased my hours at work. I have time to sew again, and sew I have been. I have a callus on my finger from hand sewing and I couldn't be happier!! LOL.
