I’ve started the applique for my Charleston Rhapsody . . . and so far, so good.
I didn’t really think about all the points on the triangles when I first saw the pattern – what I saw were all the hexagons (have I mentioned you need 842 of them?).
But there are a few points. Still, I’m making good progress and enjoying it.
I’ve been making progress with the hexagons, too. They are just an easy distraction when I want to stitch, but not really concentrate too much.
What’s happening in your world?
It’s been a very long and very busy week, but in amongst all of that I’ve managed to make some progress with the Charleston Rhapsody hexagons . . .
It’s a funny thing how something as simple as a needle and thread and a bit of stitching can help quiet the mind and cut through the stress, isn’t it?
I’ve been cutting lots of these . . .
and with a bit of stitching I’ve made this pile of hexagons . . .
I got the pattern for the quilt in the mail this week and I’m really looking forward to making some progress. I did smile, though, when I was reading through the instructions and got to the part where it talks about making 842 hexagons.
Now, I know it’s a managable number, but 842 does make your heart skip a little beat momentarily.
I’m not counting how many I’ve made just yet. I think I’ll leave that till the pile gets a little bigger!
I had big plans . . . lots of time . . . lots of sewing . . . lots of progress . . .
Things didn’t go quite according to plan . . . but that’s not always a bad thing.
We ended up chauffeuring our son around and sharing an unexpected dinner at our daughter’s place. We had fun and a reasonably early night.
But I did get some sewing done when we got home!
I’m embarking on a new project . . . it’s called Charleston Rhapsody by Carolyn Konig. I don’t actually have the pattern yet (it’s in the mail), but I was able to make a start on the many, many hexagons needed for this quilt . . .
And I’m going to be working with this glorious pile of fabrics.
