Hi, This is a short post

 This is a very long term project. 

While my husband was sick I started this hexie project. I am using the idea from a picture designed by Willyne Hammerstein. She is a quilt designer who designs Milliefiori Quilts. In the book I am using the pattern is not available, but a picture of her working on the design was included in the book. 

I chose to make it using scraps and my own size of hexie templates. Mine are ones I printed from a free website with graph images you can size and print for free. 

So this has been my therapy. I sit and listen to Audible books and stitch away. I have a mess near my chair with all the thread colors and small pieces to make these shapes. 

The hexies when basted are about the size of a US quarter, So not huge. I have to lay it out to see what colors I need to add next. 

It has been to hot to work out in the yard. So sitting and stitching is the plan until it cools off. 

I have been sorting and purging things that we have kept for whatever reason. I still have many more drawers and storage boxes to go through. Plus a garage with every tool in it you could think of. I will sell some of the stuff and keep some for small repairs that I can do. 

Hope everyone is safe. All the storms and the illnesses are not fun to deal with. Thoughts are with everyone out there going through all this stress. Chris
