I've been neglecting the blog this week. It's been one of those crazy busy weeks that leaves you moaning desperately for some downtime. I haven't been home much this week and when I have, I've been working. My freelance work comes in spurts and when I get a big project(s), it usually takes a while to get it all wrapped up and out the door. That said, I've still got a lot of work to do and this upcoming weekend is packed with my daughter's 10th birthday festivities.
Fortunately, hexagons are perfectly portable and I've taken them along with me this week and worked on them when I have idle moments! I was able to get a lot done during the two hours I spent at the tire store having one tire patched and one replaced. Yes, it's been that kind of week.
Here's a quick visual puzzle for you. My quilt wasn't going to have any duplicate fabrics. How quickly can you find the repeat above? I was devastated when I spotted it! I had planned on using ONE fabric twice in my quilt, but this isn't the one I would have chosen. I don't think I have the energy to attempt to cut out all those tiny stitches and remove it, so I guess it's staying. That means I can't let another duplicate into my quilt and it's getting harder and harder to spot them, especially when I'm using the same prints in multiple colorways.
After I discovered the dupe, I went through my loose hexagons and found four more that I have already used. That's when I repacked my box by color and counted my hexagons. I've made 594 hexagons for my charm quilt and have 200 of them attached to another hexagon! I've really enjoyed seeing your progress in the flickr group too!
Thank you for the kind comments about the video. I have not forgotten about the requests for more and I will get some done, I promise. The video was really fun to do. On that same note, if you've sent me a message or left a comment this week, I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to do so and I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to reply.
If I'm not back there before next week, have a lovely weekend. Enjoy some downtime for me!
