Thanks, but no thanks

It seems everyone who has seen my hand-pieced Kindle cover loves it. 
As do I. 

I've also had several people suggest I sell them.
I'm in the process of making a couple by machine to take to my mom since she has some students interested in a strippy one like hers.

But in regards to a hexagon one...


After all, who would pay $122 for a small Kindle cover? 
That's what it would cost if I paid myself minimum wage for the labor.

And, frankly, if I were piecing by hand for someone else, my rates would go up. 

Hand work like this is not meant to be profitable- I've spent so many hours on it that I could never bear to part with it!!!

For me, hexagons are pieces of my happiness. 
I can't sell that.

(But, if you want a machine pieced kindle cover, talk to me or find my Mom. She'll have some inventory  soon.)


  1. Very wise. Never sell your treasures!

  2. Woohoo!! Now I know what to do with my little blu flower hexagons! Make myself a Kindle cover! Thanks for the fabulous idea! Glad you stopped over at my place to enter the hexie draw, now I can come over and see what your new creations are!
