Once upon a time in what's seems like another lifetime I had a sewing basket on my coffee table.
I used to sit and paper piece hexies. I never did anything with them but I liked making them. This was about the time Daddio caught the hexie fever and my projects were put aside to work with him in order to keep him out of mischief after Mom died.
I was watching The Last Homely House podcast the other night and she was showing off her beautiful hexie quilt. She doesn't make flowers, she just joins them in rows and it's really lovely to see. I was so inspired I dusted off my basket and sat down and made a row. Maybe I'll make another row and join them. Maybe not. These days I'm like a cat on a hot tin roof and can't seem to settle down with anything for very long.
I also don't have a very good track record with finishing my paper pieced projects. Remember this? My poor Dear Jane hasn't seen the light of day since the pandemic started. I am just too jangled up to fiddle with those tiny pieces. I started it mainly to learn new things with paper piecing and I sure did. I learned that using a glue stick is better than a pin to hold your pieces down-and that's about it.
Don't you just love The Last Homely House. I've watched her for quite awhile now and she's just so calming and I always feel more relaxed after watching her. I love her cats too and her cozy and beautiful home. Even Dennis watches her with me. :-) I know she's not much older than I am, but I always feel like I've had a good visit with my Grandma after one of her videos.ReplyDelete
Your hexies are lovely and so neatly made. I wonder if I should attempt one someday. I love the purple one she's making for her granddaughter.
Blessings always Debbie,
No, sewing basket here; at least not a pretty one like yours. I do have way too many knitting bags though, and they are all too full.:>)ReplyDelete
I like your sewing basket and the hexies are great!!ReplyDelete
I used to have a sewing basket...I wonder what happened to it! Yours is very pretty and I like that you still use it! You are beholden to any of the crafts you start--put it away and maybe you will find it another day!ReplyDelete
I completed one, small hexie project (I took a class) and I doubt I will make any more hexies. While it was interesting to try something new, I didn’t really enjoy making the hexies.ReplyDelete
You could make a nice table runner with those hexies!ReplyDelete
OMG! I bet hexies in strips would be gorgeous! I really hope you'll give it a try.ReplyDelete
Nice basket!! I can see where a hexie quilt would be fun! You go girl!ReplyDelete
I do remember Poor Jane! I love the hexies, I am in awe of all of you wonderful and creative people who can sew a straight line. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
