Bum Knee....

Since I tore my meniscus a couple of weeks ago I've been pretty much in my recliner most of the time and using my time to work on hexies.  
((That is when we're not driving out of town to our doctors appointment.  I'm getting really tired of seeing the inside of my car!!))

But my hexies!!!  I really do love working with them.  Yesterday I finished sewing all the white paths around so today I can add some more of the 'blocks' I have made.  

 See those four white hexies connected to the border.  Yeah, well there is a story about them.
As I'm so prone to do I was merrily sewing along adding border hexies and filling in with the white ones.
Until I got to the rust colored triangle. .... Ooops!! something didn't look right.  Sorry I didn't get a picture to compare the goof.  But to make this long story short(er) I hadn't paid attention to the line of my border and I sewed the hexies up one and continued the rest of the row.
Sooooo every other set of hexies I had to unstitch and resew the correct way.  Major "headslap"!
Oh well..... It only took a few hours correcting them and now I'm ready to move on.
AND.... Packers at 3:00pm and Chiefs at 7:00pm and Thanksgiving leftovers to finish up.  Oh Happy Day!!

I'm heading over to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday blog to check out some of the other stitchers.  

Come on and join us.  
  
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

  1. OR you could consider those four a head-start when you get to that side of the border - ;)) And sorry about your knee - been there - done that!! Mine is OK now - but it took some time and a lot of ICE - so hang in there and keep going on those hexies - they're looking good!! - ;))

    1. LOL I can always count on you to look on the bright side. I am doing my best to follow the therapist instructions. And yes the ice! So I bought another ice bag today so I can use one on both knees.
      Thanks about the hexies.

  2. Your hexie project is beautiful. I enjoy hexies entirely vicariously through other people's projects, so thanks for sharing! I hope your injury heals more quickly than not.

  5. So sorry to hear about your knee, but at least it gives you a good excuse to spend a lot of time sewing. That is a lot of beautiful hexies.

  6. It seems like that would be so easy to do! Good thing you didn't get discouraged and fixed the shift!

    1. Yes it was easy to do! So now I've learned to pay attention instead of just sewing merrily along. lol

    1. Thanks Donna. I've been taking things a little slow since I kinda over achieved during Christmas. But since I've been resting I've had the opportunity to really work a lot on my hexies. I keep thinking this quilt should be a LOT farther along than it is. haha
      Happy New Year.
