To Go Projects

Are a must right now!

I often drop the girls & Owen off at school on bikes, as long as we are organized enough to get out the door on time!  And Ella will ride her bike, an hour earlier most days as well.

If we have a rough morning, or the immanent threat of rain, I will have a total of five trips to two different schools. And waiting to pick them up I’ll stitch a hexie or two! They also come in handy, at the soccer field or while “watching” football.

I’ve basted plenty of hexies, but this is the first shape I’ve basted together! I have a plan for a little mini, that I’m officially working toward now. Previously, I was just basting them, with no project in mind. I’ll share more soon :)

Do you have a to go project?

Hope you are well –

    Your hexies are so bright and colorful. They are my to go project as well, but I don’t usually take them farther than my chair in the evenings. Basting them takes so little time, it’s the stitching them together that takes me so long. I now have 27 flowers done, still a long way from anything!

    hexies are definitely my go to project… I also use a Wonder Women metal lunch box to keep my supplies in! It’s the best!

    haha! I can totally understand. Those waiting at school times leave me antsy too. I usually bring my Kindle and read, or just enjoy people watching (one of my favorite past times). Your hexies are great!

    I bring hexies along to extra curricular activities and also sashiko and crochet! Have to keep my hands busy! Your hexies look great!

    I either bring hexies or my knitting….just don’t know what to do if I’m not “doing” something with my hands! LOL
    Love the shape you made; looking forward to seeing what you make!

    Hexies were my take along project for swimming lessons this summer and I recently finished a mini quilt with them. I don’t have long wait times for drop off and pick up but I like to keep my hands busy while watching movies and such so I crochet or embroider.

    Currently I do not have a togo project but I think I need one with the holidays around the corner and too much travel time to make the family rounds of visiting.
    Looking forward to see what you have in store for these cute wee hexies.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    Cute hexies! I have some to-go hexes right now, because we are moving and my sewing machine is packed away. I think I’d go crazy if I couldn’t sew for a couple weeks!

    My “to Go” project is for road trips west only… a cathedral windows quilt. I’ve been working on it for about 10 years now and have it almost half finished. Guess I need to head west more!

    I was working on my “swimming lesson sewing” just this morning! I need to refresh the supply of pieces in the bag, but I love having this little portable project.

    Hexies are my go to project as well. I have a small container I carry the supplies in and they are a quick grab when we are running out the door!
