My sewing buddy

 Last night I was trying to work with my hexies, and Bubbie wanted to be close to he is half asleep.

Speaking of hexies:

They are  hexagon shaped pieces of paper about the weight of some card stock.  They need to be stiff to keep the hexagon shape.

They are lain on a fabric 

And I use a ruler to cut around them, allowing for a seam allowance.  Normally, a quarter inch seam allowance is critical in quilting but in this not so much.

I use a pin to pair the hexie with its fabric... 

Next the 'seam allowance' is folded over the hexie and I baste it in place.

Later they will be whip stitched together, in my case to form a flower.

I am worn out tonight...going to close now....without a video or anything funny.  I hope you all are having a nice weekend.
