Hexie Tip

Guess what I found under a bunch of scraps.... New fabrics I bought at Creative Quilter in West Duluth Minnesota. She was getting ready for a shop hop, and there wasn't much of either of these on the bolts, so I got mine quick. I intended to come back and do the shop hop, and I would have in the olden days when we made money. Now we live on a fixed income, so ....No Shop Hops.

 The fabric on the left is variegated! A whole yard of different colors in that feather print.

Here's the Hexie Tip I came up with last night.  I was having so much trouble holding the fabric, plastic template and the needle all at once while folding down the ends.... how did I ever do that before?  Then I thought of my clips!  Just right to hold it all folded while I tack the little bugger.  Works for me.  (I don't know what I'm making with them. I just needed a project while watching TV... otherwise I eat.  On the Slimfast diet... I've lost a few pounds, but I'm so hungry....

Have a wonderful week.


  1. Oh welcome to the Constant Dieter Club--ugh!! I have to keep my hands from that plate to mouth motion too!! (Or really potato chip bag ;000) I have been struggling --trying to eat less, more moderately, but these pounds are stubborn and refuse to come off. Even with walking.....I had lost 30 lbs on Atkins, but who can stay on that diet forever??? AND they've just about all come back on, too...SIGH....

    I love that feather fabric--just beautiful--we are on a fixed income, so no shop hopping for this bunny either,, I took out my hexies and looked at them--that's as far as I got ...soon, anon, later- gator, whatever!! hugs, Julierose

  2. I agree that hexies help us eat less. Good idea for the clips. I use tiny binder clips but I will remember my hair/binding clips if I am ever a pinch. Don't know why I didn't think of them before. Thanks for joining the Hexie Linky Party!
