My little bit of this big World

Wednesday 22 June 2016

All together now

I have stitched a few each of these last colours and designs
 Here are the mixed design hexagons I will be using
 I have picked four of each
 To help with my OCD, I have put them all in this box
Starting with the hand made hexi, the hope is I pick one from the box and sew it, no putting them back trying to match, I want to make it fun without my added stress of trying to make it look random. 
 I have rather alot of these hexagons, I think about 1400
but I have a few other projects I want to make
 and if I hate the whole putting them together
someone (my sister) would love to have them.
 I have one pile to finish sewing
I lost an hour cutting out paper template hexagons
but I am loving doing it all the old fashioned way
this box is just a perfect project box, just looking a bit empty now.
Firstly hubby is feeling much better, he had repairs to his left shoulder the tendons had torn, he has his arm in a sling and is taking things easy. So I am chief cook and bottle washer for a few weeks. So thank you for your comments.
Not much else happening here, I'm just so tired, it's been a pretty eventful couple of days, so an early night is called for.


  1. Glad your husband is OK. Enjoy your hexi sewing together and being random! It will be beautiful when they are all joined!

  2. Happy the hubby is doing better. Yeah, I drive myself crazy with the random thing also. When I crochet all those yo yo scraps for a bedspread, I just HAD to divide them into rows so it would look rihgt. silly me!

  3. Your Hex's are going to be adorable.

    I know what you mean about trying to make something look random. Mine ever do :(

  4. I wouldn't be able to break into those hexis to start sewing them together! It's going to look amazing!

  5. Glad everything is OK with your husband. Great hexies

  6. Wow, that's a lot of hexagons, they look so pretty all lined up in the box. Glad to hear your husband is on the mend.

  7. Random is always so hard to do - creating patterns is much easier! It looks lovely so far. Your hexie stash looks great as well.
    Best wishes

  8. Hi Marlene, I am the idiot who can not find your address anywhere. I have a pouch all parcelled up. Drop me a comment or email with your add on and I will gwet it off to you.

  9. So many lovely hexagons! Glad to hear your DH is doing well. Take care of you both!
