New way to play an old game...

Did I tell you I was basting my hexies on the sewing machine? Well I have been since I didn't like the way they looked when I did it by hand. It is really fast too.
Then I read on a blog a couple of days ago to hold them in your hand like this instead of the usualy way I had been told to hold them. I thought, Hey if I can break the rules by basting on the machine I will bend the rule by holding them different.  I had to see if it kept my ugly stitches from showing on top.
These are my underside ugly stitches. I hope they get better with time.

Here is the top side...LOOK! No ugly stitches! Now I need to find which blogger I read and give her credit.

They just don't lie flat if you do it the traditional way. Looks like the new way works great!!! Love those little hexies! :) I think basting on machine is a great idea.
