Still making hexies


I am still plodding away with my little hexies. For a change of pace I have been sewing some together just to see what they will look like. So far I am quite pleased with the results. It really is a great carry along project so hopefully they won't take to long to finish. Still deciding on the centers though so I thought I would do those last when I find the right fabric. We had a lovely visit with our daughter over the weekend. Of course I couldn't go empty handed. So I made her a little bucket filled with all kinds of goodies. I even made an early Christmas ornament. A big thanks to Lisa at the lovely blog A Spoonful of Sugar for giving me the idea for that sweet ornament. Fall is well underway in my garden. This is my witch hazel. It really is a wonderful plant to have in the garden. It turns the most beautiful colors in fall and blooms beautifully in winter. It is so nice to look out in the garden and see wonderful flowers when nothing else is awake. Our Japanese maple once again has turned into it's great orange color. Unfortunately it won't stay that way for long as the rain and wind usually strip it of it's leaves pretty quickly. Not everything has changed color. This lovely plant is still nice and green. I thought it looked quite interesting all covered in water droplets.

Well I think it's time for me to go and make some more hexies. Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone.

I used to love making patchwork hexegans when I was little, but never got round to sewing them up into anything, probably because I would have had to do it all by hand! Looking forward to see what they turn into.

It must be something about fall that's what my daughter has been doing lately. She has hexagons everywhere in all sizes. She said she just loves making them. I love your fall foliage.

That is a sweet little bucket you made for her. What are you doing with the hexagons?

What sort of flowers does Witch Hazel have? I love plants that look good in winter.

Oh such beautiful pictures - love the bag and heart you made for your daughter. I miss the turning of leaves - they are hard to find in Texas.
