I think I finally understand why everyone is in love with hexagons and why you see them popping up everywhere in Blogland. Last week Helen and I were watching our fellow stitcher, Sandi, making tiny hexagons and stitching them together. She was making Anni Downs Turtle pincushion. We decided then and there that our next Tuesday stitching day (today) we would make our turtles too and today would be known as Turtle Tuesday.
I have to say that it was a lot of fun (even though there was a bit of fiddling with the hexes at first) and very, very therapeutic. We managed to get our shells finished and now a bit of sewing of the head and feet, some stuffing, and they should be finished. I really enjoyed seeing it all come together.
There is nothing so wonderful as motivation and encouragement from your sewing buddies and our Stitching Get Togethers every week.
Hope you had a super day too!
