Hexie Extravaganza

It's that time of the year again!

One hundred hexies for 100 days! (#100hexies100days2019)

Week 1 is about me
This year, Sew Foxy Mama (@sewfoxymama) started the fun one month earlier. I'm glad since this is the perfect summer project - low key and with hexies 😊

Week One: Me

7 hexies about me

  • M. French Roast coffee bean that keeps me going in the morning
  • paw prints for those I love
  • colourful and pretty flowers
  • a cacti for the desert that I am drawn to
  • fabric from my first home-made curtains - very colourful
  • colourful modern fabric for the modern art that I'm starting to appreciate!

Week Two: Summerlicious

Summer fun, at least when the heat is reasonable! 😊

Part of the fun is the photo shoots. It's great to go out and take pictures of hexies and it's a lot of fun seeing everyone's photos!

This is my favourite photo of my beloved "Let's hibernate" cup, which is what I would and sometimes do in the cold, cold winter. I just wish that I also had an "estivation" cup - for burrowing away to hide from the summer heat!

I wish I had a "Let's estivate!" cup

Week Three: Teeny Tiny Things 

Teeny and tiny are relative terms - when an image on fabric fits onto a 1" hexie - it's teeny!

It was relatively cool today so it was a great time for a photo shoot in a nearby park.

These are the themes for the 100 days.

What I learned
  • Hexies are fun and not worth getting stressed about! Perfect for a tired quilter 😊

    1. Thanks Lisa, the themes have been relatively easy to follow so far but I'm going to be stuck when the berry cute comes along. I`m going to have to be super inventive!

  6. THe hexies you chose for "About Me" are delightful and a lovely share. And you nailed the other two themes. Good luck with the rest... there are some challenges there that would be beyond my stash!

  7. Hello Andrée,

    You are the hexie queen! I can't believe you are working on such a tiny scale. You make the teeny dog look huge!

    True confession - I have never sewn a single hexagon.

    Thank you for linking up!

    Love, Muv

    1. Hi Muv, we`re going to have to remedy that! You can't go through life without making at least one hexie flower! :-)
