Hot news from the hexagons

Thank you for encouraging me to change the center of the hexies.
I really did the right thing and it didn't take me that much time and effort:
just 2 hours!

I also managed to make about fifty flowers, but runned out of paper hexies, also had some fabric from Anne Marie, to varie and the more i make, the more i'm pleased......

Making the reds was BORING, but had to be done to, that's all i can say about the reds, i worked on this behind my computer, looking and listening to missed programs on the Dutch TV.
I follow a Dutch blog, www.hexabee.blogspot.com/
this girl is working on the same quilt,let me know if you're doing the same!

I payed 50 cents for these darling little boy shoes.
Defenitely made for the working classes, and with wooden soles!
I'm afraid those shoes were painful for kids , and how did the parents check out if they were too small??
These were never worn, so old and still brand new..........








This is my favorite bag at the moment: vintage, a Hermès fake of the Grace Kelly model.
This kind of ladylike handbags are very hot this summer..........
Some household to do and soup to make for dinner, still cold and rainy, back to the hexies ladies, take care!

Your hexi work is amazing. I'm working on one 3/4" with the red pathway as well, I love your layout and your other hexi quilt that you just got back! Beautiful work!

Quel courage, Will, de couper déjà des centaines de papier, de bâtir et de les assembler ensuite... Je suis impatiente de voir le résultat ! Et quand je pense au quilting, Oh ! Là Là !!!!

I'm so glad you took the time to change it. I know you will be much happier with it so it was worth the time. I'm amazed it only took you two hours!

Your venture with hexagons is prompting me to bring my old hexagon project out the box where they are stored and keep them handy for small moments of stitching.

By the way, your quilt is coming along nicely! I love the red setting. I also scrolled down to the Q that came home from the shop. Your method of quilting (straight lines across the hexes) looks like a much simpler method than what I've used (around each hex!)
