Last week I shared my vintage hexie trials - unstitching a hexie flower to get the seams to be more consistent. I was a little dismayed that it took me all week to get the outermost border of hexies stitched together. I was stitching for short periods of time every evening, but I still didn't finish until this afternoon. That's OK, most of the other hexie flowers have been stitched with an appropriate seam allowance, so I won't have to re-stitch ALL of them!
Have I mentioned the hexie flowers are 12 inches in diameter?
Some of my hand stitching time has also been taken up with this project: Nae, a shawl by Anat Rodan. I haven't done any knitting in about two years, but I saw this shawl on Pinterest and knew it was exactly the type of knitting I enjoy. It is a simple pattern, so I can knit while watching TV or listening to an Audiobook. I have a loooong way to go yet, but I'm very happy with the results thus far. It doesn't hurt that I found a wonderful yarn in my favorite color - purple!
It's been a slow Sunday in many ways and I've enjoyed every minute - especially the stitching! I'm linking up with the other slow stitchers over at Kathy's Quilts, and looking forward to enjoying everyone else's slow stitching as well!
