I've been seeing lots of lovely hexies popping everywhere, and to be honest, I really wanted to get in on the trend. When I found Texas Freckles's site, with all its great video tutorials, and hexie templates, I knew it was a sign. So, I've been making 2" hexies, using my 5" charm square stash. I hoping to have enough to make a small lap blanket. (My goal is 300 hexies.) I'm pretty new to using a sharp needle and paper piecing, but I'm not beating myself up over anything, and I'm really really enjoying sewing these little guys up.
On the cross stitch front, my BBD Anniversaries of the Heart is moving very slowly. It's a lot of fun to stitch, but I'm still using a Q-snap, and with a 1/2 yard of fabric to contend with, it just is a bit of a mess. So, I've been working on Serena's scarf, and making hexies instead!
The cable guys were out today, and I worked on the hexies while they sorted out the wireless Internet. I think they thought I was pretty weird, but I was having too much fun to care! :)


  1. What beautiful fabric! I love the soft colours, very pretty.

  2. I love the fabrics you're making! Welcome to the addictive world of hexies. :)

  3. You chose beautiful fabrics. Those hexies look too tedious to me and also anything that needs to be exactly cut and sewn to lay right scares me. But I bet yours will make a lovely quilt.

  4. I think that your fabrics are just beautiful! It's so hard not to get caught up in these things, isn't it? They're easy and there's not a big learning curve! Like potato chips, it's hard to do just one!!

  5. You've picked some gorgeous fabrics! So muted and pretty!


Thank you for your kind words! They really make my day. :)
