On The Go Projects

January 27th, 2016

I like to maximize my time, so you’ll often find me with a few books in my bag and crochet projects with me while I’m out and about. Some of these things don’t lend themselves to shorter periods of found time, a minute here or five minutes there. I thought English paper piecing hexagons might fit the bill and they do!
Yesterday found me at the car dealership waiting to get a few things tuned up on the MINI. So I whipped out my hexi jar (a wide mouth mason jar) and managed to knock out 20 hexies while I waited.

As I worked, I thought about how I could make a project container that would neatly organize all items needed to make these little beauties. I also need to get a tiny pair of scissors to add to my kit. These are a fantastic way to make us of tiny scraps of fabric and tiny scraps of time, a win/win in my book.

What new hobbies have you discovered recently?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
