For the past two months I've been happily sewing away on my hexagon pieces. In San Diego we took quite a few weekend trips and so the car rides have given me the opportunity to work on them as well as a little time in the evenings here at home.

I re purposed the tray that holds the ice bucket here at our hotel to arrange and stack my hexagons (in color order of course).

The largest piece I have sewn together. I would have kept going but still living out of a suitcase I decided to keep them in just groups of threes for portability sake.

My cigar sewing box. In it I keep (left to right); scissors, a travel book light, cap to collect trimmings, thread puller, fabric squares (2.5 x 2.25inches), needles, thread, needle threaders, 1inch hexagon papers, Clover basting clips and a thimble. Perhaps next time I'll show you how I assemble a hexagon.

I have found that, for now, I can easily sew my hexagons in groups of threes, with like colors together.

It is beginning to take shape. Here are all my little 3 groupings laid out how I might like to see them. And below just the blues I'm working with.
