More hexie play

Can you believe that October is half done? The leaves here are really starting to change and the weather is turning cold and wet. I may have to put my sandals away soon 😞

More of 100 hexies in 100 days (#100hexies100days2019)

The official party was over last week, but I finally finished putting my hexies together and posted my last few weeks on Instagram. Better late than never!

As always, it was a lot of fun. I got side-tracked a lot, but then that's pretty much my normal state of being. My last hexie post went up to week 6. So here is the rest of the lovely hexies. You will find the links to my previous posts in Related links below.

Week 7 - Japanese
Week 7 - my Japanese fabrics

Week 8 - Sewer's Choice
Looking through my scraps, I found a bunch of fabric with polka dots and circles. I love the way that the centre circle looks like alien eyes peering out!

Week 9 - I Spy

There was a lot of fun fabrics here: a bench, a cactus, a cyclist and sailboat to a rabbit and a rain cloud.

Week 10 - Berry Cute

I knew that Week 10 would be problematic because I have very few berry fabrics. I was happy to see someone post some holly and berries - at least I had some of those. The others are cherries and an orange tree.
Very Berry fabric (with bugs!)
Week 10 - some berries and fruits

Week 11 - Sewing Notions
I took the pictures of the Week 9 to 11 hexies at my brother's cottage. It was so much fun running around with my hexies! I even met his neighbour whose chicken the sign is about!

Week 12 - Vintage

Week 12 - Funky vintage flowers
Week 13 - Creatures
By now my holiday was over and back to work I went. At least I had some fun with the photo shoot in my cube!
Week 13 - Many fun creatures

Funky art and cute creatures
Week 14 - Favourites
I decided that I needed some batiks in this mix since I love to work with them - they are so colourful!
Week 14 - some of my favourite fabrics - Batiks!

Week 15 - Playful
I found some lovely, playful fabric for this last week. Of course, they deserved a playful photo shoot!

Week 15 - lots of playful fabrics 😊
Can we get more playful?

What I learned
  • Participating in this event is always a lot of fun, but it does require work, especially to keep up.
  • As always, the photo shoots are a huge part of the fun.
  • It's weird how some days I want nothing to do with computers and Instagram - that's why I'm often late in posting.
  • I love seeing other participants' hexies. It's always so creative.
  • I'm looking forward to another fun year in 2020. Thanks Sew Foxy Mama (@sewfoxymama)!
