Marbled Hexies Repeat Patterns

I had talked two days ago about making jewelry again and showed off some new marbled hexagon pieces. Well, I went another step and scanned a huge handful of those hexagons and digitized them to be used in all kinds of projects.

I thinking I’m going to run with this idea and see exactly what I can make when I mix my jewelry with my quilting. The sky is the limit.

For now I’ve added a whole bunch of pieces using the scans to my Society6 shop

I am slowly ordering swatches from Spoonflower and currently a few colorways are available¬†as yardage¬†with more coming super soon…

Seriously, there is so much more I can do here! Other shapes, more casting techniques, different colors, etc. I am so excited by this project and will probably be sharing more about it soon!

Flower Doodles

I hate to just sit around, I’d prefer to be kept busy. So when I get sick, I get super frustrated. This was the case the past two weeks, and to keep myself occupied I took up doodling in my sketchbook non stop. I’ve been meaning to get back into that habit anyway. It’s been too many years since I took time to just draw, and I am certainly very rusty.

Then I figured if I was already doing that, why not upload one of the colorways to Society6 too! I absolutely love the phone case, I think it was the perfect application for the repeat.

I noticed while I was on there that I had a promotion that I could share with all of you. From now until January 12th at midnight (PST) you can get FREE SHIPPING when you purchase anything for MY Society6 shop! (you must click the link to get the offer) I thought that was pretty cool, and I’m now wondering how often they do promotions like this?
