my creative space.

this week, i think you could probably guess what i've been working on...



more hexies!

my total for the month is up to 252! and i'm ALMOST out of the fabric that i cut out at the start of the month...



i feel another day of cutting coming up this weekend... and maybe a trip to the patchwork shop to pick up some more hexie papers! i opened my 5th packet of papers last night, which means i almost have 500 sewn up!
i also did a quick calculation last night (which i'm sure i've done in the past) and realised i'd need over 3000 to get the size i want! eeeeeeeeep!

in other news...



i cast some knitting on too! i was getting itchy fingers sitting at traffic lights (bad nicole!) and on the walk from my car to work and vice versa.
this is a request from a friend of a friend to re-create a much loved beanie. i got my hands on it, and took a bunch of photos and reverse engineered the pattern a bit... hopefully it comes together how she imagined it would!

what are you creating this week?

3 thousand!! Wow! Though it will definitely be worth it when it's all constructed.
The different fabrics look really good together, I love the colours.

So many hexies! Not sure I'd be patient enough to cut and 'paper' them all before making a start on piecing them.
