No One Can Make Just One...

My small, round Longaberger basket is just the right size for my hexies...so far.
All the supplies I need to work on them are safely tucked inside my basket, 
and when I finish stitching, each finished piece goes right back into it.
In one afternoon, I stitched all the hexies from one 42 piece Moda™ mini charm
 pack. I'm enjoying watching the pile of them grow so much I just kept stitching!
It won't take me any time at all to prepare the other little charm pack tucked in
the basket behind all those hexies. I just have to iron all the fusible forms onto 
the back of the fabric pieces first. Then, they'll be ready for needle and thread.
Now that I see how they look at this stage, I may have to get more supplies. 
Perhaps I'll get fat quarters to create other blocks to complement these...or
more Plum Sweet mini charms and fusible Hexies™ are on the horizon. 

As I was stitching away, it came to me that this just might become my first,
entirely stitched-by-hand, quilted project. I'm not sure what I'm going to make
yet, but I know I'm looking forward to this process. I'm going to take it one 
step at a time. For now, I'll settle for stitching that second package of hexies.

Happy Monday, everyone!

It's addictive, isn't it? I'm working on a diamond EPP in a tumbling blocks pattern.
