I finished my first hexie from the new block of the month "This Goes With That" today. I was quite surprised when I received the BOM because the finished hexies are bigger than I had realised from seeing them on Hettie's website. (You can see a reference for size below) This one has been fussy cut. The instructions tell you not to fussy cut too many, because "less is more". I love that whole cliche thing. Cliches must have started somewhere. I wonder just who was the first person to say "less is more" and what situation was it first uttered in? (On the whole "less is more" tangent, I love the quote from the modern Sabrina: "More isn't neccessarily better Linus. Sometimes it's just more.") I started thinking about this whole cliche thing after reading Loz's latest post here. Her son has been "calling" football for the local radio station and he has been nicknamed "Captain Cliche". I think that must mean he is doing a good job because most professional sports commentators are full of cliches! Anyway, back to the hexies. I have no idea how many I "have to" make each month. I think that the idea is to be fairly flexible so that you can come up with a design and possibly even a size that suits you. (Unless I have missed something, which could well be the case!) I think that probably you are supposed to make many more than one hexie per month, so it's not like I am close to exceeding my limit or anything! I will just keep plodding along I guess! The sewing room is still in disarray, but I am inching closer to the finish! Wish me luck!
|So you can judge the size. They're quite big really.|
