Oh daylight saving time. You are not my friend this year. Usually the time change doesn't bother me too much, but this year I'm really feeling it. Perhaps just a sign that I'm another year older?
It's been cooler here in San Francisco for the last few days, and my sewing has definitely had that autumnal feel to it. I've only been in California for a year and a half and I'm still getting used to a very different concept of "seasons" than back in the Midwest.
Just two flowers were completed this week, one in browns and one in oranges.
Here's a glimpse of the two of them from the back.
My hexagons are 3/4" (per side) and I use 2" squares to make them. Many English paper-piecers cut their fabric down to hexagons to eliminate the excess bulk of fabric on the back, but I don't for two reasons. First, I don't think it makes THAT big of a difference. Second, I'm FAR too lazy to do that! Squares are so much simpler and fast to cut.
