Oh my poor machine...

With my machine still at the menders and no news on what the prognosis is, sewing around here has almost come to a halt! 

It was Mother's Day in the UK last Sunday so I sent my mum a gift in the post. I had made her this mug rug and included a mini charm pack of the latest William Morris range.

Having no sewing machine this last week has meant no guilt that I should be finishing off some WIP or other! It gave me the ideal opportunity to start something new, by hand! I have wanted to make some hexies for ages now, so I did! 

I had a Vintage Modern mini charm pack that I am now turning into these adorable little  hexies.

Not sure yet what I will turn them into but it keeps me from missing my machine too much :)

  1. I love the fabrics you have made your hexes out of....hat will make for a fun project.

  2. I am in the same boat, machine-less and working with hexies. Your mug rug looks cute

  3. the idea of hexies seems to be running rampant thro all the quilters i know

  4. The hexies are adorable -- so very fresh. You might check out what this gal did with hers: Enjoy!

  5. Hexies are definitely a great distraction for sewing machine-less times. I've been working away on mine for more than 8 months during moves, on trains... and haven't yet really made up my mind what they will become, either. :)

  6. Great initiative with the hexies, and that mug rug is adorable.
