I keep sewing and sewing and sewing – and everywhere I go I find other people who are just as nuts!
--- or nuttier over hexies as I am!
Here is my 3rd fill in corner ---can you see how it is getting to where it needs to be? The pattern? I drew it out on hexie paper and filled it in with colored markers ---it’s ugly, but it does the job!
You saw the hexie quilts we found at Gary’s Picks in a post the other day—right? ((Aren’t those elongated ones fun?))
There were hexies on the wall in my post on Robert’s Sewing Center yesterday --- did you catch them? I see them everywhere I turn!
There were hexies on the floor at Giordanos!
These hexies were being stitched by a quilter who was sitting right behind me at the Pride of the Prairie guild meeting last Thursday ---I was waiting for my turn to speak, and I sat there feeling like MY hexes were GIANTIC compared to hers….look!
SO SWEET!! I think hers are 1/2” per side ----
A student brought in a lovely lovely fragile antique piece that she picked up at an estate sale on Saturday ---
Silks and velvets --- the velvets are so reach you have to touch them…and the silks are shredding --- but what is so remarkable is that the papers are still intact, showing they are cut from personal letters and correspondence --
Don’t you just get chills when you see the penmanship of women from 120 years ago or so? I do!! Quill pens, or nibs dipped in decorative ink wells ----
Tiny, tiny whipstitches holding the fragile pieces together.
Jan brought her hexie project to class on Saturday ---- and I almost swallowed my tongue:
Oh. My. Goodness!! This is full of cute overload ----can you hear me squealing?
((And yes, I know you can probably see my tonsils too! LOL!!))
I wonder where I’ll see hexies next??
