Hand Sewing Hexies????

Well, everyone who knows me is very aware of my “love” for hand sewing…NOT!  I think it is just a lack of patience for me.  I really have a very hard time even binding my quilts and putting a sleeve on.  Yes, I do know how but just seem to have a hard time sitting still long enough to do hand work, even when I’m forced to sit still in a doctor’s office or where ever…Oh well, I have accepted it.

I have a box of hexies sitting next to my chair in front of the TV, even have a few done, but it just sits there looking at me.  AH HA…just found hexies that are more my speed.

Check out  http://www.ladyharvatine.com/2010/03/hexagonia.html for a tutorial on Hexies by Machine!  I may even try these just for kicks.

Off to quilt guild for a lecture by Mickie Mowery on Tiny Pieces…hmmm, we shall see!  I hear her quilts are fantastic and will take some pics to share for those whose mental capacity allows them to sew teeny-tiny pieces.

Meanwhile, BE HAPPY!  Karen
