Hexie Project Progress
I really need to get better acquainted with my new camera. When our family was watching fireworks on the fourth, I spent more time trying to figure out my camera's settings in the dark, than watching the display. Sheesh! Here is one of the good shots I got, thanks to Erin's help.
I am making some progress on my Red Purse. I have all the hexie's covered, and am now stitching them together. I'm about 1/8th done. This part is the easier part of English Paper Piecing, in my opinion.
I'm not sure what I will do next---maybe my MIL's unfinished quilt. It needs two borders, one of which I need to buy, but I'm without a vehicle today. (Hubby's pickup wouldn't start, so he took mine---it's probably the battery. We've had a lot of hot weather lately, and I think hot weather is hard on batteries.) I think I will quilt it on the machine because I like to have two projects going--one hand project and one machine project so when I get tired of one I can work on the other. I would like to do some machine work now, but that's just too bad.
