I've been thinking about hexies but I haven't landed on a good collection to make them from or what I might turn them into once sewn together. Have you seen any hexie projects that you think I'd like?
Any other suggestions for hand piecing? I'm open to paper piecing . . . I've just never tried anything other than hexies.
I like embroidery, but, again, I'm blanking on coming up with an embroidery project. Hmm . . . maybe some embroidered hoop art for the walls?
I have skeins of Cascade 220 that were intended for little crocheted pouches but I'm not sure that this will be the time to try to master a craft I'm not very adept at. I think crocheting might take more concentration than I'll have during this time.
I also have this beautiful alpaca that I bought with the intent of making, basically, a headwarmer. But, I kind of think it's a shame to waste it on something I won't likely wear so I've just let it sit and stare me in the face for weeks. Suggestions?
I think the ultimate project for this time off would be hand quilting this beauty.
I've been wanting to get it done for ages and just haven't made the time to baste it myself so I sent it off to Elvira, my long-arm quilter, to baste for me. It's so big that I haven't really had the space to do it! I should also probably order some pearl cotton, right? Maybe one of those gorgeous Anna Maria Horner bundles. Yep, I'd better put that on my Christmas list.
