Hello! Hello! Yes, it is Design Wall Monday but it is also HeLP for Hexieaholics or Hexie Linky Party time. Woot Woot.
First a little housekeeping - my blog was spammed 50+ times this weekend with some wonderful drug buying opportunities so I had to turn on word verification. Trust me, I want if off as fast as you but I don't know how else to deter the spammers and I don't think moderation will do it but I am open to all suggestions. I'll leave it on for a week and hope they have moved on. Sorry :(
Sew, as some of you know, I went camping for another 4 days in the Adirondacks this past weekend. I took a few photos while leaf peeping and I'll post them later this week. I also got to do a lot of hexies!!! I worked on larger projects around the camp site but I also carried a smaller project on day trips to the museum, craft show and mountain climbing. Yup - I need a HeLP. LOL!
The first project I worked on was another Rose Star block. The pieces were already basted so I was able to get this block together my first evening. It needs a good pressing.
Again these Star Blossom pieces were all basted before my trip and the center was already together, but I got all the side sections together and just need to attach the last 4 to the mothership. I should be able to finish this in another evening. When I will have such an evening available, I do not yet know...
And last but not least, I also assembled these pre-basted kites into 4 centers for more hexie puzzles. I do not have the triangles basted yet but this is a nice small project I need to get packed for carrying around with me.
Oh and before I forget - look at the book that arrived while I was gone! I cannot wait to have some time to look this over - there are about a zillion ideas for piecing hexies in here. Have any of you ordered a copy yet? Kansas City Star/Pickeldish is selling them but if you order from the author she will autograph it. Lemme know if you need the web address.
UPDATE: Mickey's blog is http://itsafiberlife.blogspot.com/ and you can buy the book at http://www.mdquilts.com/shop.html
Now then - lets get some HeLP for my fellow hexieaholics - share the projects you have been working on or even dreaming about! I don't care if you haven't picked up the project in a week or a year, lets see what your projects are. They can be any shape, as long as they are English Paper Piecing. The only rule is that you must link to a specific blog post and not to your blog as a whole. Let the HeLP-ing begin and don't forget the next party will be October 17th!
