Check it out! This is the first of many Honeycomb Windows that MiMi has been working on for the past 2 months. She said that wrapping all of those hexagons wasn't difficult at all and that's a good thing since she has around 1,500 of them left to wrap! This window is tacked together and ready for solder so we'll surely see it completed when MiMi returns.
