When I can, I'm still squeezing in some time on my hexagon project.
I'm working to make some hexagon blocks to go with the ones my grandmother made.
I pretty much just threw everything in this bin
But now I've figured out that these little hexagons are extremely portable and easy to do anywhere.
I organized the fabric and templates into groups and store them in a leftover Schnibbles pattern cover.
I could maybe get by without the Clover needle threader, but I just love how easy it threads my needles.
So the sewing accoutrements along with the fabric and template pieces all slide right into this pink bag
that I got for free from some cosmetic company. Then I just grab this pink bag and throw it in my purse. I can carry just one flower, or several, depending on how much time I anticipate having. The whole case takes up very little space in my purse.
I worked on this one on the plane on the way to California, when I was visiting my daughter.
I enjoyed having something sewing related to work on while I was away from home.

I'm not happy with how visible the stitches are that connect the hexagons. Do I need to use colored thread, thinner thread, take smaller and fewer stitches, work more from behind? I did buy a stronger pair of reading glasses, to maybe help me pick up fewer threads as I whip stitch them together. Any tips you may have would be appreciated.
If you've not left a cupcake comment on my birthday post, please do so, you still have a couple of days to provide me a yummy cupcake shop or bakery.
Thanks for stopping by!
