Photos can really help one see. I've got one lavender hexi made from a different fabric! This cracks me up... I didn't see it until I looked at the photo. I mean this is HAND work, not strip piecing! What a hoot. Now the dilemma, at an insane 22-24 stitches per inch & super strong knots, do I want to try to take it out? Used to be I absolutely would, but then this attitude contributes to my difficulty in completing projects. And although it is a bit humbling, it isn't what I think of as a humility block. My understanding is one has to PLAN the mistake and make it intentionally... boy is that tough on perfectionism... tho I bet I could come up with a plan for the 'perfect' intentional mistake! lol So, for now, I'll leave it. If I can't live with it, I'll change... but the likelihood of me making a bigger mess and injuring the adjoining hexis is pretty dog gone high!
This makes number 17. I only plan on having 18 for my largish throw. There will be 5 rows: 4 flowers each in rows 1,3 & 5; 3 flowers each in rows 2 and 4.
This week, I'll work on the layout before selecting the colors for the last flower... keeping my fingers crossed that they'll all play well together and none will stand out.
Also, I'll concentrate on making connectors; some are made but I have boatloads to go! Not even sure how many I'll need, nor how I'll finish the outside edges. I've got 3 or 4 jelly roll strips (and 10" squares) of other browns I could use to fill in the dips in the sides. Sixteen 1" hexis can be made from each strip. Haven't used much of the 10" squares so do not know how many can be cut from them. There are also 3 or 4 golds in the grouping I haven't used yet. (This is when I wish I had EQ 7!) But, as I do not, I guess I best get busy.
