A Little More Scrappy Hexy Progress

 Despite what my blog shows, I actually have been sewing!

 Any time of year is good to sew with Christmas fabrics... secret stuff... well, secret for now...
 

I've also been sewing for school.... It's been fiddly, annoying & tedious... and thankfully, it's finally finished. Using a waterproof canvas of some sort, to make covers for various pieces of equipment for the Art Department. The equipment is housed in a semi-outdoors area, & really needs to be protected from damp air & dust... to be honest I don't even know what any of the machines do, I just made them a snug cover each! About 12 covers in all, no two the same.
Sometimes it's not a good thing when people know you sew!

So to the Scrappy Hexy Quilt progress... Another block is ready to stitch onto the main piece, & I've started stitching the next one together too... it's rather a repetitive process really, but I don't mind... it's actually a bit exciting to see the piece getting bigger now.
 With the Tour de France & Wimbledon starting soon, I'm hoping to get some good stitching done... keeping one eye on the action, & two eyes on the stitching😊

That's all for now... have a great day!

Your hexie project is growing so wonderfully...I really need to get back to mine. I seem to have lost my mojo for sewing/quilting projects for the moment. Although I am making fabric and lace collages for an artist book I am currently making.
