Most of my readers know that when I am working on a project in earnest, I carry it with me almost everywhere I go to take advantage of what would otherwise be "lost" minutes! This habit is a big part of how I manage to fit as much crafty goodness into my life as I do! Generally speaking - most fiber crafts - knitting, crochet, embroidery and hand sewing - are excellent candidates! Hexies on the go - a bit more challenging! So many little bits and scraps - and hexies to corral.

Marking straight lines on felted fabrics can be a bit tricky. Chalk barely stays in place long enough to get the job done and marking pens seem to find the uneven texture a challenge. So I tried using masking tape and to my surprise it worked perfectly!
Masking tape clings just enough to stay in place while stitching and releases without pulling the fibers. I used the same pieces over and over - no need for a fresh piece each time a line needs to be marked.

Dutch Canal Houses Embroidery completed! And I am happy to report - completed in time for St. Nicholas Day last December. At least one end of it.
I am the first to notice my stitching is not perfect, but one thing I did learn is that, in this particular case at least, the whole is greater than it's imperfect parts!
