Leah Day asks what are we working on. Well, the socks in the previous post, obviously. And the hexagons as well.
I put them on a chair in my Sun Parlor hoping to get a reasonably good photo with good color, and that worked. But this is obviously the last time that is going to happen. At this point I have all of the light, and medium light hexagons sewn on. And I've begun with the medium dark. I've pulled a few of the lighter medium dark to start with. But even with that, what I hoped would happen with the values is just beginning to show.
I do this project while watching TV. I was asked how I could do that, but it is actually quite easy. The basting was literally mindless. No real thinking required. There was more learning how to organize what I was doing with my hands than anything else.
Sewing them on does take some thinking. I am choosing which hexagon should do where, and I have to think about that. I want this to end up somewhat free form in shape, and I'll need to pay attention to that as well. I've got the medium dark and dark groups separated in plastic bags.
I've also moved to a different thread. The light beige thread was beginning to show, as white, on the medium dark fabrics. I bought two shades of grey embroidery thread. That kind of thread is thinner than regular sewing thread.
It is an interesting project.
