Getting Ahead of Myself
So I finally turned the page in the book and realised I'd just got too cocky and ploughed onwards sewing my hexagons together. It was only when I was explaining English patchwork to Claire that I realised I couldn't possibly machine sew my hexagons together. D'oh. So I spent every evening this week unpicking them in front of the TV and vowing to plan ahead from now on.
You have to sew the half hexagons together in diagonal strips first which I think could go horribly wrong so I have been super-anal and drawn out the whole thing beforehand. The white gaps represent the divisions between the strips. Now I just need to sort my piles out and refer to my picture.
