Interesting Half Hexie Progress

I’d love to say this piece was in the finishing process, but it is so far from the finishing process that lying wouldn’t even cover what I was doing. I am, however, working on this piece. It is slow going, which is fine when I don’t have other handwork that I must do. Recently, I … Continue reading “Interesting Half Hexie Progress”

Half Hexie Progress

My half hexie EPP project has been languishing while I knit and sew on bindings, and do other handwork. It seems that I last posted about this project in July of 2017. I can’t believe I haven’t worked on it since then. I have been looking for the diamond papers I know I have that … Continue reading “Half Hexie Progress”

A Few More Hexie Stars

I have been working on the half hexie stars a tiny amount. They take a long time, as I have said. I finally was able to cut some more backgrounds, so I have been focusing on making background stars. I’ll have to see when I can add more stars to the larger piece. Making the … Continue reading “A Few More Hexie Stars”

Hexies on the Mind

Gerre talked a bit about putting the Merit Hexies together in a project at the last meeting.

Hexies Return

The last time I seemed to have written about this Flower Sugar Hexagon project was way back in 2011. I didn’t think that much time had flown by, but Pam has made two hexagons, so I guess it has. My design walls have been empty for several weeks while I work on small projects; the … Continue reading “Hexies Return”

26 Project Review…Again

I am making progress. Going on Retreat helped, but it’s still frustratingly slow. I have to appreciate that I am still able to make some kind of progress.

26 Projects: Moving Forward

I really took a big leap forward during the past couple of months and I am so pleased with my progress.

I did make some other small projects and crossing those projects off my … Continue reading “26 Projects: Moving Forward”
