I'm back from my conference and after nearly 10 hours total on the train, I have quite a few more hexagons to show for it! Everyone asked me what I was making - felt a little silly saying, 'I don't know!' Still not sure - it all depends on how many I make. Making the little hexagons is totally addictive - they are like little jelly beans I put into a bag, instead of taking out of a bag and popping into my mouth! I'm not quite as crazy about sewing the little guys together, but some parts of the process are always more fun than others. Since I'm sewing these by hand, I really feel like the project will have to be hand-quilted. That's something I've been meaning to learn, but am quite afraid of. In the meantime, I will just keep making these little red jelly beans. Or maybe I should call them red hots!
Below is a photo I took from my window at 1:30am this morning. The light here is really unbelievable. I just wish that the spring would stop teasing us and really explode!
