Hexies... ( a sewing post)

In the past I had stated I would not "be sucked into the hexie vortex"........yes those were my words. Words which Chooky told Sue Daley - the queen of paper piecing and hexies!
So my words have come back to bite me.
Sue Daley is going to be the guest tutor for our Girls Day In The Country retreat in March, and I am going to assume that we will be doing some form of paper piecing. Oh dear LOL.
It's not that I don't like paper piecing or hexagons, I just didn't want to start yet another project or something else that would get me hooked LOL.
Anyway, in preparation for the upcoming retreat, you might remember back here when we met in Bathurst, that Chooky got me started on a hexagon flower.

And I am pleased to say that I finished it!!!

So I have had some practice before the retreat so I can at least pretend I know what I am supposed to be doing!


This flower is a bit lonely though.....................


Hugs,
Anita

This may be what I need to start something little/small/simple. Will go looking for pattern and instructions :)

You are much braver than me ;)
Well done!

Good on you....that'd have to be called a finish wouldn't it????.....one hexie flower on a sewing dilly bag would look nice, then it would have a home and you needn't feel compelled to make a friend for it....
