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.

Boa Art Quilt

"Boas" cotton, wood frame. 28"x25". 


This is the first quilt I've mounted on canvas stretcher bars. I like how it's easier to hang and hopefully, more easily understood as wall art.

Cotton Baby Hat

I love this pattern. This time, I used cotton because it's summer. Neutral colors, but I'll see if I run across a pretty ribbon before the shower. 


Shirt Refashion

Reworked a shirt that I liked but wasn't quite right. I took off the sleeves, chest pockets, and about four inches from the bottom. I've already worn in more than I did when it had long sleeves!
