Last week my sewing mojo was missing in action. My husband was away on work for the week so I had plenty of time to sew, but for some reason I just didn't feel like it... do you ever have those days? I did do a bit of hand sewing with a batik charm-pack I had lying around.
I started sewing them together but I don't really like how it's looking. The stitches are really obvious and I don't really like the color placement. I think I'll probably scrap this layout and start over. I really love the modern feel of these floating hexagons. I think that type of layout would help the batiks feel less frumpy and help the beautiful bright colors to really pop.
This weekend I wasn't able to sew either. I ended up traveling to the Great North Woods of New Hampshire (Yes, that is a real place!) to spend some time with my husband on his job site in Pittsburgh, NH. For those of you who know your northern New Hampshire geography, that's the bit of NH that is further north than Canada. We got a lot accomplished but, alas, little done in the way of sewing. I did manage to stitch up a few more of the hexie's mentioned above.
I also recently ordered some cute mini-business cards from Moo.com, which arrived last week. How cute are these?! I plan on carrying some with me for when people ask me about my blog and including them in the Bee packages I send out. I was inspired to create a design after two different bee-mates included them in their packages. I used my new blog header for the front, featuring the Globe Trotting QAL in Rapture, and my new triangle quilt on the back.
