A Hexie kind of Day


First I'd like to thank Madame Samm our leader and Debby Kratovil  our Hexie Queen (queen of hexies she is) cheerleader.  She has kept us all on tack this summer.

Warning:  Hexies CAN BE Addictive

Hexies I've never made them...thought they were cool, but never made any so when this tour came open I said, "Why not"  sew I purchased a nice Hexie ruler and boy did it Rule me as you will see..

Did I mention this is a very nice tool to have? 
My first two original projects...completed

mug rug

table topper
back side of topper
front/back
Then it was sew addictive I went on making hexies...


his new home

oops error....rip out time
there all better

This project isn't finished because it is growing into something bigger as I add more to it...I want to add an appliqued bone and ball also want to do some embellishments, embroidery highlights, to the dog.  not sure where it is all going.  I just know it is growing....hehehe  maybe he'll be done in time for a Christmas present for my daughter that is a dog lover.

For my other daughter that is an owl lover....Here again this project new; not quite sure where it is heading sew it is incomplete.  Just know it will someday, hopefully sooner rather than later, become something.  wink, wink  everyone says "Hexies are addictive" guess the bug got me too. Sew there you have it my hexie addiction.

Be sure to visit others on the blog tour.  Some have giveaways.

  33. I'd say you've caught the hexie bug and that's a very, very good thing. Your daughters are going to be elated when your projects for them are completed. You did an amazing job of fussy cutting the Scotty and the owls. I wish I could do that well. I tend to forget about my seam allowance - grrr! And you seem to have some great, great ideas for completing them. Thanks for participating and sharing your amazing creativity. I may just make a hexie tag for helping to identify my suitcase for my upcoming flight - great idea. I hope to see you in more hops very soon.
