Update

Have had a very productive day so far. Made loads of hexagons and got them glue basted ready for sewing. The yellow roll arrived this morning so I now have one complete set organised. I'll cut the second lot when needed. I don't want too many leftover hexagons hanging around LOL at the end. Such pretty colours...........


as you can see there are still a few to baste which I will finish off later. Mind you I have managed to to loads of other jobs like housework in between sessions. Been working so well I had to even go down the street and get some more refills for the pen LOL

Looking good Katherine. I also run out of glue but my local shop had run out of refill stock. I had to wait until i went into Ipswich. Happy Stitching

I'm really enjoying it. I've done everything as a production line and that is from cutting paper to gluing fabric. LOL I think you girls have created a hexie making monster! I sat down after tea last night and got 6 sewn in 2.5hours and hubby recons he could sew them at one every 10 mins - cheeky thing can actually sew his own buttons on before meeting me. As to how many I made I am not really sure. Using jelly rolls it has been extremely quick to cut squares ... and having the pen is wonderful. I selected one length of every design from the jelly rolls as a starting point and when they are all sewn I'll go back and repeat the process with the remaining lengths. I've decided on making it to a lap quilt that will comfortable cover me while lying around on the couch or bed sewing.
