Hexagons, Part Two


I just want to sit around all day making little hexagons.  Hand-stitching them all together is rather a different matter, but I do love these tidy bundles, tied up with cotton twine.  They are going to be a pillow cover, because I am purely unable to imagine sewing together enough of them to make any kind of quilt, and even a pillow cover means over a hundred of these, and umpteen teensy stitches.  It is strangely soothing work, given the puncture holes in my finger, but I find I really like to make more serious progress than this.  Which is why a girl has more than one project going at a time, right?
