Trivia EPP Hexies

I'm at home today, which is absolutely lovely. I should be cleaning, tidying etc etc etc - there's always something that needs to be done around here - but I've decided that I'll sit on my computer for a little while instead. I'm slowly going through the pictures on my phone to see what's been happening around here lately. My poor old blog has been sadly neglected, so I'm going to post some updates even though they're from the past few weeks/months.

Every Monday evening we go to trivia. It's a bit of fun and I honestly don't contribute very much to the team, except when it comes to reality TV or celebrity gossip. We all have our strengths, right? Now if only they'd ask more questions about quilting, it'd be right up my alley!

I sit and work on hand-basting scrappy hexies. Everything I need for the evening fits inside of my Twinnings tea tin. A pile of 2.5" scraps, a ziplock bag filled with 1" hexagon papers which I cut in advance with my Fiskars XL hexagon hole punch, and old spool of thread in a colour that I wouldn't normally use (currently isn't a polyester bright lime green), a needle, a wonderclip and little scissors.

While we answer questions, I happily sit and baste hexagons. I've been doing this for at least the past 6 months and have a lovely pile of them to show for it. At this stage I don't know what I'll make with them, but I'm enjoying that slow hand basting process.

I started on some Kaffe hexagons last week and have more cut and ready to take along to stitch at our next trivia session. The Kaffe hexies are gorgeous, as you'd expect from the bright and happy fabrics of the Kaffe Collective.

Do you enjoy trivia? What's your current portable sewing project?
