Hilachas is the Spanish word for those little loose threads that fall all over the floor and sewing area as you finish sewing and snip the tail end of the thread off the sewn area. So does this blog entail the odds and ends of topics of interest, leaving more loose threads to ponder...
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease. 4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection. – Psalm 91 NLT
Today is One Flower Wednesday! This group really is accomplishing what it’s mean to for me.I keep making hexie flowers so that I’ll have something to post each Wednesday so that’s good.
The sewing that has slowed down somewhat is the work on “My Jane.”I’m still going though.The bookkeeping has really slowed so I don’t even know how many I’ve done to date.I guess I’ll work on that too.I know that I haven’t even come close to making all 225 blocks yet, not even a fourth.Anyway, here is block D-6.This was such ridiculously paper-piecing that I’m wondering if I sewed it up correctly.
Oh, Tip:Just in case you have an Accuquilt Go Baby.I was lucky enough to win one, but here’s the tip:Do Not put your fingers in the hole of the handle and roll away with wild abandon as I did.That mat “thingie” along with the die comes through quickly and crushes your finger in the process of cutting out beautiful hexagons or whatever you’re cutting.
Here’s “My Farmer’s Wife” block # 6 called Big Dipper. It was all paper-pieced.I hate the colors I chose for this too.
