I have been stitching hexies since last August as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. They have turned out to be surprisingly addictive and the perfect portable stitching project. Most of my hand stitching is done during my morning train commute or while "watching" TV in the evening.
I finished a hexie star in blue a few days ago. This brings me to 5 completed large stars, although the light blue one needs some help. Those outer points disappear too much against the background.
Next up will be a couple of blue snowflakes, to go along with the 7 done previously.
I hope to find some time to stitch hexies today and tomorrow (an extra day off--heaven!!) If not those days, I will definitely continue my morning commute stitching, despite the funny looks I get on the train. I was glad to see another woman pull out her crocheting one day last week. I'm not the only crazy crafter!
I am linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts, HeLP for Hexie-aholics at Sarah Did It!, and Hexie Weekend at A Quilting Reader's Garden. On Monday I can add the Monday Morning Star Count at Life Under Quilts. Check them all out to find great hand stitching and English paper piecing inspiration.
