Denim Pouches

Had some leftovers from making cutoffs and one can never have too many convenient pouches for pencils and whatnot.

Hexipuff Count: July

Only 28 hexies this month? I've been working on other projects and traveling and it's not such a bad thing. 


I'm storing all my puffs in four bags: darkest, medium dark, medium light, and lightest. I think it'll be easier to arrange for sewing together that way. Or it was just relaxing fun to do.

Travel Knitting

More details on this project soon, but just a picture and an observation for now: the pineapple reticule is a much more convenient travel project than Hexipuffs are. I'll have a smaller puff count this month, but it's also the first big knitting project I've approached since starting my Beekeper Quilt.

Regency Short Stays

Working on a new period outfit, so the first step is underpinnings!


There's plastic boning at center front the rest is cording- some kind of laundry line I found at the hardware store that's nice and sturdy.

Starting a Regency Outfit

Making short stays first, then redoing the neckline of my chemise, and then I'll make a day dress out of the patterned cotton in the upper right.

Monthly Hexipuff Update

An even 100 this month, bringing the total up to 578. Not buying any more sock yarn, and I'll see how many I can make from what I have now.

Glitter Hexipuffs 

According to the first website that showed up when I googled "hexagon quilt calculator", I'd need about 650 hexies for a 54" x 72" lap quilt, or 814 hexies for a twin bed. There's also the question of half hexies to make the border even or not. I'd only need 39 of those for a twin blanket, which doesn't sound like an intimidating number any more.
