Sadly, all I’ve sewn in the last week is this ball. The sewing machine is packed away. The fabric is also packed away, but I keep ripping the tape off the boxes to grab just one more scrap.
This was my first time making a pincushion and I am really enjoying having a little hand-sewing to work on. This one is for a gift, but I think I want to make a group of hexagon balls out of fussy-cut Christmas fabrics for my giant and awesome bowl:
I usually put pinecones in the bowl for the holidays, but I would love to add some various sized paper-pieced balls sewn from the same cute fabrics I made the kids stockings from:
Since I will be machine-less for awhile and staying in a hotel for a week while we move, I was inspired to take out my WIP hexies.
They are 1.5″ hexagons and I was originally bummed that it looks like such a crazy mish-mash, so I put them away for awhile. Now I am thinking it may make a great hexagon scrap-vomit quilt. It can keep me warm when I am sitting in my rocking chair at the retirement home (which is when I will probably finish it.)
My favorite part of my hexies is carrying them around in their little case.
If you make hexagons, how do you keep them organized?
