Obsessed with Hexagons

Who me? Just because I have started dreaming about sewing hexagons together doesn't mean I am obsessed - does it?

Still I just can't get enough. I have been cutting and tacking like crazy over the last couple of days because we are off home to the UK on holiday and I am hoping I will be able to finish off the rest of the hexagon blocks for the quilt I am making. With only one suitcase between Amelie, Hanna, me and my hexagons it has been a squeeze and I am lucky we are staying with Mum and Dad and have easy access to the washer! Darned low cost airlines. They advertise such cheap fares but the reality is oh so different. I guess another indication I am obsessed - I would rather take my hexagons than more clothing!

I have also been working on a hexagon tutorial. Although it is dead easy really. I will post it as soon as we get back in a couple of weeks.

So in the meantime take care. We are off to dance our socks off with Grandma and Grandpa. This is at least what Amelie keeps telling me.

Enjoy your trip home to the UK! Glad to see you have your priorities right and are taking your hexagons. Can't wait to see all your progress when you return.

Have a safe and fun trip! And no, you're not obsessed - you're focused. Totally different in my opinion!

I wish I could get obsessed with hexagons - especially after having seen what you've done.It's so lovely! But in my 20 year "carrier" as a quilter is has never happened. And it's not that I haven't tried. :-)

I think someone needs to start up a hexagonally obsessed clinic, it is all too easy to get completely obsessed with these little six sided darlings!!!!! Your fabric choices look so super duper together I need to get hexagoning MORE!!!

Have fun on your trip.

The Hexagon's look great. Grandmama is teaching me to quilt. We're starting with squares. She says it will be nice and easy. I don't know how you do it. It took me over an hour to thread a needle! xx
