My missing hexi cover is found!!

Last year I started a hexi top using scraps in vague colour waves, after being inspired by Michele's finished hexi cover here -

However I had to pack up to move house and all my belongings had to go into storage for about 3 months.
Once I moved in to my current haven, I unpacked and stashed my crafting gear in the loft, under my bed and in a weird triangular storage area in my bedroom.
But not a sign of the scrappy hexi cover was found.
I've since scavenged through boxes and containers several times and had almost convinced myself that I'd accidentally donated it some place.
But today, looking for my heat guns I found this box, which I thought was choc full of family photos ~ 


 BUT OH HAPPY DANCE !!




I now have 3 hexi covers on the go -
should keep me out of trouble at least!

Now isn't there a June hexi BOM due out about now for me to get stuck into too?

Love it! Now I want to make something that big with my scraps with larger hexies! Thanks for the inspiration for my future wish list! Glad you found it!

Great find! That's so pretty with the color waves. What size are the hexagons? When I first read the title, for some reason I thought it was the cover of a box you kept your hexagons in. LOL

the box is half full of hexis made ready for stitching on and Id forgotten how many Id made up ready, so that was a nice surprise must admit.
they are 1.25" hexis, which is a size I really like working with.
