Hexie Project Update

Last night I sewed several big pieces on to the mother ship.

Here’s what the hexie project looks like now:

The pattern is from Edyta Sitar’s HANDFULS OF SCRAPS.

Seems like I’m more than halfway done now.  I started this project back in mid-November 2015.

I’m going to float this main piece on wide borders and applique it down.  Then I’ll remove the paper pieces.

I am really liking this quilt, and I love the hand work at night.

The fabric is ALL from my 2 1/2-inch square scrap bin or from 2 1/2-inch strips.

Washing My Handmade Purse

I’ve never washed one of my handmade purses before now.

But, the handles on my current one were beyond dingy.

And I am going to visit my family on Sunday.

So, I washed it today.

Wow!  Look at that.

Like new.

And most of all, CLEAN!
