I got the components for the final row of hexies back from the girls in the bee, and now I have that row sewn together and the top border sewn onto it. All hand sewn. One more long seam and the flimsy will be done.
I've been sewing a little on it every day. Fortunately my hands are not flared up right now so it's not painful. Yay!
The most difficult part of this project, actually, is pressing the seams. Due to the bulk where six points come together, they need to be spun. Sometimes they spin nicely like these, sometimes not quite so well.
One more long seam. The next meeting of the bee is next Tuesday. I'm pushing to get this top done so I can show it to them and thank them for all their work over the past 12 years. It may have crept along glacially slowly, but it's moving along quickly now.

The tiny star created by spun seams is spectacular in its own way!!!ReplyDelete
