Hi everyone, Tracy W. here, and I'm going to share with you my "Hexie Bag". I don't sit in the car very well on long road trips and when we were looking at colleges with our son a few years ago, I discovered the awesomeness of hexagons. I've been dragging this bag along with me whenever we head out of town ever since. Here's the details:
In addition to the hexies, I have an old leather pencil case that I keep the sharp stuff in:
I also keep a container filled with fabric scraps and paper hexies:
This bag gets around. Sometimes it doesn't get touched, especially if the weather is nice, but if it's raining and I'm stuck in a small hotel room, cabin or car someplace far from home, there is nothing better than having something to pass the time with -- fabric, thread and a needle...or three (I always lose at least one).
