We're having a chill break for a little warmth and downtime, in sunny Tenerife. We've never been here before, but are very impressed. We normally look for somewhere which has excursion possibilities (historical sites being a favourite) and had always dismissed The Canaries as being just a resort. Well, our view hasn't changed but our current needs have. After a rather stressful period, we were in need of a rest and a bit of looking after, which we have certainly found! That's not today I haven't been sewing (can a leopard change its spots?!) but something undemanding.
And that something is hexagons! I've also discovered a great way of cutting the fabric. Usually you end up with fabric which looks like large mice have been chewing at it - all lacey! This method is much quicker. I just cut 2.5" strips and then subcutaneous them into squares. The papers it's beautifully on there. I suppose you could snip the corners off if you were a perfectionist, but I didn't bother.
And here is the progress so far. Looks a bit strange, but the red lozenge will be the central motif, surrounded by other lozenges and rosettes. So far so good!
