Hexagon Hand Project

I haven't done much sewing, as I am out of state tending to both of my parents.  They were both in the hospital for various ailments, but very serious  conditions.  Both are finally home, and we will be making some very difficult decisions in the next few weeks.

In the mean time, I brought some hand sewing, crocheting, and embroidery work to do while the parents rest in the mornings and afternoon.

Yesterday I was able to work on some hexies.  Before leaving on this trip, I wanted to do a hand stitching project and came across a package of hexagon paper pieces.  I have seen the hexie world out in blog land for quite some time, so since I already had the paper pieces already cut out and ready to go, I just rummaged through some scraps that I thought would make some really nice flowers.  Reasoning behind this is because I think I will be making a small quilt using the Grandma's Garden pattern.   Google it and you can see what the Grandma's Garden looks like if interested.

Surprisingly sewing them by hand went faster then I thought it would (might not have gotten enough scraps for the out of town trip), and it was easier that I had read about when other people attempted to make them.  So for now, I will continue with the scraps that I have and see where it takes me.  The sashing hexies will be done using muslin,

Bless your heart. It is hard enough to take care of one you have both at the same time. I hope the decisions you have to make will give you peace. Small projects like these are wonderful when you are having to be away from home. Cant wait to see when you finish. Prayers to you and your parents. take care
