Craft-on-the-go-2: hexies


Besides my Alice in Wonderland embroidery I also took my hexies with me on holiday! Fabric, thread (several colours), needles and scissors all fitted nicely into the cookie tin I bought while I was in London earlier this year. :) It turned out to be a perfect crafty holiday activity. I sewed my hexagon-flowers in the sun, in the cottage, in the car... The Heather Ross cat ones are possibly my favorites!


And these are all the hexies I made so far! Not entirely sure what I will do with them though...so I'm just soldiering on until I find the perfect pattern. The Hexy MF is still a very tempting option of course.

For my embroidery peeps: on the &Stitches blog we have a great series called Summer Bloggin'  you need to check out if haven't already. We had great posts from Julie about making mini-samplers and last week DoubleT wrote her first post about Blackwork embroidery. Very inspiring stuff!

In a few days time I will post some photos of the 'Lucky' Bunny embroidery I'm still working on. I have a new camera now and I hope that I will be able to show you some nice details!

  1. I love the cats too! Very kitsch. I think they would make a very good Hexy MF. Look forward to seeing what they become!

    1. Actually I do need papers but I'm using a different size than is used with the Hexy MF quilt along, not sure if that is a problem? Mailing you!

    1. Thanks! It's one of many quilts I have in the works now so it could take a while before it's finished :)

  7. It's certainly 'beginner' friendly. They are not very hard to master at all but still I find the result quite pleasing. :)
