Vexing Hexies

First things first, let's clear up any confusion. I did NOT start a new project before the others were finished. I made a kit. A lacrosse-season-is-starting-Monday-and-I-will-have-a-lot-of-time-on-my-hands kit. And anyway, Posie made me do it.

I've always felt too intimidated for hexagons. There is something about them that feels pretentious to me, like you're trying too hard. Julian is fascinated by them and gravitates to a Flower Garden quilt whenever we see one at shows.

So yeah. I'm a hexie maker now. It is tedious. It is time consuming. It is not pretentious. They are so lovely! The only thing that vexes me now is that I really, really want a snow day to work on them - but a snow day would make lacrosse practice very difficult. But if somehow I could get a snow day but Julian could still pull off a lacrosse practice, I could work on my lacrosse-waiting-only handwork. Yes, that would be nice.

  1. Thanks for linking this to my blog! I have a love affair with hexies, but never seem to have the time to complete an entire project...but the hexie pile keeps growing, they are rather soothing to stitch...can't wait to see how yours come out! Chrissie x
