Just can’t help myself………

Are you like this too….You get a new thing to sew and you can’t stop sewing it until you have done it?

I am like that….but lately its Hexagons! I sit and sew them all up into the hexie shapes at night while watching the telly and when I go out to the doctors or where ever I have to sit and wait for a while I take them with me and do some while waiting. I have done lots but mind you I have lots more to sew as I have cut out all lots of my scraps fabric.

I am recycling too….so don't look at the box I keep them in. lol After I get bored from doing the shapes I then sew them up into the Hexie flowers.

1 - For Mumof 6 I am getting quite a few done and I am also in a Hexie Flower Swap in the Craft Forum. Don’t look at all the loose threads….I didn’t trim them off.

I have yet to work out what the contrast colour fabric that I will use to go around them all and so they all tie in with each other….I think I might go for an off white…decisions decisions…..

Have you been checking out Among the Gum Trees blog? We are having a giveaway each day for 7 days all up for the Among the Gum Trees 1st Birthday….its a year since Dawn, Joy, Vikki, Jenny, Fiona, Judith and I all got together and began this wonderful journey together. It’s been the most best fun :)Avatar xxx - CopyAnother swap I am in on the Craft Forum is a Monthly Block Experience….but with this swap we don't swap but in the beginning we all gave a block pattern and a FQ and at the end of the swap we will do a draw and there will be First, Second and Third prize winners and the FQ’s will be divided up accordingly. We have to show our block we have done for the month by putting up a picture of the completed block. Some gorgeous blocks are happening :) This month Cheryl gave us this pattern to use….

I to am a hexi addict! I started about a year ago. Some days I just cut out the shapes, other days I sew them together (I am just cutting them out like you would a traditional pattern and piecing that way) another day I put flowers together, now I am in the midst of piecing the rows together but realizing I need to make more...and more..... Glad to hear others love hexi's too, I just didnt realize it was a hot item at the moment......

I love how you're storing your hexies until you use them. Makes a nice design element just sitting in the box!
