Mindless television sewing? Potato chip piecing (you can't make just one)? I started basting these little hexagons last summer and kept basting sporadically through the year. This resulted in piles of hexie flowers with no plan attached. Couldn't bear the thought of appliqueing them onto solid squares or worse still, basting a bunch more solid hexagons to go between the hexagon flowers so I just started sewing them together. There's still no real plan, but one may be forming as I hand stitch my way through all six seasons of Lost. Yes, we just got Netflix.
