I bought a Sewline pen last October at the Knitting & Stitching show in Dublin. I tried to use it to hold an applique piece in place and it was rubbish for that so it stayed in my notions bag in the original box for a whole year. I have since found that it is perfect for glue basting hexies and will be buying refills at this years show which is being held in a few weeks time.
This weekend though I decided I'd better crack on with this project as the demo for our guild is 2 weeks away! I decided on the layouts above to motivate me to get on with the hand sewing and after messing about with tiny Hexagons for a bit, procrastination got the better of me and I decided to take a break and made up a few larger ones for Christmas trees.
this tutorial I have loved and wanted to have a go at Modern Handcraft.
So a bit of work to go yet but despite dragging my heels a bit, its going pretty quickly and I hope I'll get these done this week as I have to finish writing up instruction sheets for them (will share them here soon) and bee blocks to get to too!
