I've been doggysitting Ginger this week, (Thankfully she is healing well so far!) doing some sketching and prepping while staying in one room with her as she is to walk as little as possible. My hexies are done for the next quilt and now I need to finalize what it will look like. I started these hexies last night and worked on them a few hours more tonight. I am really liking this starch method of prep for English Paper Piecing. Over 100 hexies ready to stitch in a small amount of time. I'll start stitching tomorrow!
I am going to keep these little hexies organized in my new sandwich box which was sent to my by Taryn of Reproduction and Antique Lover blog. She posted about how she keeps organized when taking her projects along with her. I commented on how my sharp scissors cut through my purse once when I tried to take my quilting along with me. She was sweet enough to send me this extra plastic sandwich box of hers and these tiny little glassine envelopes! Thank you Taryn! What a creative way to store our stitching. I'm excited to give it a try. Every 4 days I go get three allergy shots and must wait for 30 minutes afterwards in the waiting room. This will be the perfect take along to put in my purse and keep me busy while waiting! My scissors will be safe and sound and won't be able to get into any trouble in this little box!
