It's been good in ways. Swimming has been in. Lazy days have been in.
So what better way to try to keep cool is to be cool & take up the hexie fad. Actually it's not really a fad as they have been around for a very long time. But I had never tried them. So I dug out some fabric cuts I had, got some rather big hexie papers & some glue sticks. Yeah, you don't have to hand stitch the papers in these days. Gee, that went fast. Magic glue & sticky tape. Who knew.
I also know people. Lots of crafty people. But particularly crafty people that do lots of paper piecing. Thank goodness I talked about it, as my friend Karen put me on the right track in stitching them in the first place. Phew. So that's been fun.
Now if that wasn't enough, I have been procrastinating over this heel pattern that I got probably six months ago. It's been nagging me & I decided to just jump in & do it. So I cheated with the sock. Pretend sock, which consisted of about 5 rounds, just so I could get to the heel. Experiment with new stitches & new techniques. Wow, that was simple. Most impressed. So now I want to get onto a new pair of socks so I can do a whole sock with it in to see how it fits properly.
It's good to learn new things! What do you have planned for this year?
