Lots of Little Pieces

A couple of Saturdays ago I was looking for something different to do/start and this is what eventuated:


265 x 1/2" hexagons in 265 different fabrics, many of which came from the scrap drawer.  These will form a secret project for later this year.  I've started sewing them together.  These hexies are so very cute.  I've also cut out some much larger hexagons in preparation for starting Candied Hexagons one day.

My temp assignment finished last Friday so this week I've been a lady of leisure (again).  On Monday Karen and I went for a drive to Penrith to drop off her sewing machine for a service.  We visited a couple of shops in Penrith then Logan's in Leichhardt and Quiltsmith in Annandale.  We will go back to Penrith late next week to collect the machine and I think Material Obsession is on the itinerary for that day.
