More Hexagons! And a New-to-me Product.

 


I was browsing on Facebook a week or so ago and came across this book, Tiny Treasures by Kathy Schmitz. Of course, I had to order it. The book has 72 patterns for 1 inch embroidered hexagons. What fun!


This is the project I want to make. The book came in the mail very quickly, so I got started right away.


The author says you can use embroidery floss, but she used number 12 perle cotton. I have loads of #12 perle cotton in a wide variety of colors. Bingo! I using a neutral grunge from my stash. The little triangles will be this green from my stash.


Along with the book, the author offers these papers for sale. Yes, I ordered these, too. I had never heard of them before. These papers are fusible on one side (yay!) and you can leave them in forever (double yay!)...

Years ago I developed a water soluble hexagon paper. It was not fusible though. And it was expensive to produce. So I was intrigued by this product and anxious to try it. So far, it's wonderful - I'll give a complete review later.


The back of the package shows that you can get this product in lots of different shapes.


For the little triangle pieces in between, I cut a few hexagon papers into 6 pieces.


I traced 4 more patterns on my Grunge to work on this week. Lots of fun! And these tiny pieces don't take long to embroider. 

I did very little machine sewing this week. But in the evenings, I work on these embroidered hexies, or my cross stitch, or my Happy Birds. It's so nice to have hand work at the ready! 

This morning I did a bit more ditch quilting on my Marshal/Blessings quilt. I'm realizing that I may not be able to do all the free motion quilting that I want to do with this project. Even the ditch quilting is hard for me to manhandle with my weak shoulders. I think I will continue the ditch quilting, a bit at a time, over the entire quilt and then maybe I'll switch over to big stitch quilting by hand. At the rate I'm going, the ditch quilting will take a couple of months more since I only work on this on the weekends.

Stay safe!
