back in the day i showed the beginnings of what is turning out to be a very long term project. it took me months to baste all of my hexagons, a few minutes to arrange them how i wanted, and many more months to actually stitch them together.
a few things have held me back. 1) my hands start to hurt if i work on it for very long. 2) all that gray bored the hell out of me. my piece is modeled on this flickr favorite and i don't regret the sea of kona coal because i like the way that it looks. it was a huge relief to finally make it to the colored rows, however.
i'm aiming for a miniquilt when all is said and done. i wouldn't be surprised if it takes me another year to finish the top. baby steps.
