A Hexie Update

I started making hexies a while back.  Not because I love hexies.  Just because I wanted to always have some handwork available when I needed something to do.  I even took them along to the beach in June and never touched them.  Maybe I liked having them along just in case.  Or maybe I didn't want to mess up that beautiful box, it was so pretty, and organized!

I don't really have any kind of plan for putting them together, I just know I want to do something different. (Surprised?) I've decided to go Improv, just playing with a layout, sewing them together, and seeing where it goes.  It started like this .....

..... and then I played a little.

And now it looks like this.

I asked Hubby what he thought, and he said, "I don't know. It's hard to tell where it's going."  My answer?  "That's the point!"


  1. I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorites! The bright pink flower with the yellow center and green "leaves" around it makes me think of Mary Engelbreit (LOVE!). Can't wait to see what comes next!

  2. Cool. I started doing some and now I can't find them. They have been hiding for a couple years. Yours are so organized. ---Bon

  3. It's off to a great start. I love the colors!

  4. My favorite part of hexies is just looking at all the colors in my storage box! LOL!
