    update 414 pieces later hexagon and 60 degree stars

    Update : 414 pieces later

    90 hexagons (one inch sides)
    54 stars 60 degree diamonds ( one inch sides)

    tip to tip 24 x 31 as you see the top star is a stretch ! 12 Stars are pinned to the group using very small brass/gold color safty pins. nice to handle as I am in the car still or sitting in chair listening to TV. Still portable at this point. tried baisting stars and found the tiny safety pins stay longer and are easy to remove.

    goal is 62 x 62... really trying here.. wow..

    only one is a repeat ! working hard !!

    Absolutely beautiful. That's a good chair and tv project. I should try that when resting.
