Hi, friends. Today I’m linking up with Kat at As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday – a weekly gathering of readers and knitters who share their projects for the week. I debated whether I should even post today but I managed to make progress on my hexies quilt in the last few days, so here I am!
I have finished nothing in the last week. I’ve started 5 books since our last gathering, but have had a hard time finding the interest and focus to finish anything. Which is a shame because there’s so much I want to dive into! But I’ve made it 60% of the way through an audiobook, so I might have something to share with you next week and I’m heartened that this is only the second week without a finished book this year!
I finished sewing on all of the white backgroud hexies that I had prepared. You might be able to notice that I finished filling in the background at the top and then started on the top left quadrant, towards the middle. This looks a little crooked because of where I have the background hexies sewn right now, but I think it will end up a rectangle!
This is what about five hundred 2.5″ white squares looks like, with the glue stick for scale. I dreaded cutting them, but managed to do it in about 45 minutes yesterday during quiet time.
Here’s about 200 of them glue basted into hexagons. I used all of the hexagon papers I had, so I’ll sew on this chunk and then pull those papers to baste more. This should be enough to finish the quadrant I’m working on, plus most of one more.
Before cutting all of those squares, I was thinking, what’s the point?! and spent a few days wallowing. But then I buckled down, cut the squares, and started glue basting yesterday, so I think I’m back on track to making progress. Plus, I have a queue of audiobooks that will make lovely companions!
Thanks for visiting today and I can’t wait to catch up with all of you this week!
