Hexie Update!

Between teaching and traveling with students, there has been a very limited amount of dillydallying going on here in dillydallydom.

... Jack Frost to maintain his residence here in our remote corner of the planet.  We had 6 inches of fresh snow yesterday!  I must admit that it is hard to complain when the view is this beautiful ... but most of us here in Cordova are ready for spring to arrive!

Exactly a month ago, I began my Hexie Adventure.
 I love that even though my life has been crazy busy ... when I have only short periods of time ... I can easily pick these up and hand sew a seam or two.
My snoopervisor is always willing to help out!
Flicka likes to rearrange my notions to meet her approval!
Bet you didn't know that hexies make a great "Sit Upon"!
And a second hexie is necessary to use as a "Paw Upon"
Together ... two hexies make a great "Nap Upon"!  Who knew? ;-)
A few dillydally moments here and there ... and a helpful kitty ... can result in a little bit of progress!  Even small amounts of progress feel great!
Do what you love.  Make progress.  Do dillydally!

  3. Wow! What a difference in our weather. Here is Ohio, it is 83 degrees and I was sitting on the porch sewing "Christmas" (of all things) hexies and listening to a book on my Kindle. After seeing your sweet spring fabric, I want to change material. They are lovely. Can you sew them together by machine? I have been sewing them together all by hand.

    1. How fun that we've both been working on hexies! I am doing them by hand as well! I have heard about doing them by machine, but have no experience with it. I am also listening to a book on my Ipod...Watership Down. It was a favorite of mine in high school! What are you listening to? Hugs Gladys!

  4. Your hexies are beautiful and Flicka is doing a terrific job taking care of them for you :). Could you please share the size you're doing? They are bigger than I was thinking of making, but I like them a lot. Look like they'll work up quickly which is always a good thing :). Thanks!

    1. My hexies measure 1 inch on the sides...the flower units are about 5 1/4 inch across! The size is easy to work with as they fit comfortably in my hands. Hope this information helps! Good luck! Do dillydally!

  5. Ahh, 1 inch..sounds good. Now that my Orca Bay is mostly together-have the center and outer border parts sewn; now it's waiting until I find just the right fabric for the inner border-I can get started cutting out hexies. Thanks so much!
