I had a massive headache last night, wanted out of the chaos that was my life yesterday, the house looked like a bomb hit it, Ashley was frantically busy so what else could I do but sneak five minutes in my very comfortable chair and sew some more hexagons.
This morning over a cuppa I laid them out to see what they would look like. I had a charm pack of Moda Friends and Flowers which I just adore and wanted to use them, but defiantely didn’t want to do squares or four patches or anything else like that. I enjoyed/am enjoying the Diamond Stars so much that what else could I do but hexagons………..or should they be octagons I wonder?
I laid them out then realised I would need to add filler blocks so rummaged though the hand dyed fabric I had (not the stuff I dyed the other day in hope of using it as it is the wrong colours/shades) and found these. Well if you want the honest truth (and we all strive for that) Mum found the fabrics – I just located the box where they were hiding..vbg.
So now it’s all systems go and I’m semi organised.
Imagine my surprise when looking at Fine Stitches, a wonderful new blog I have found, to see the same hexagon/octagon layout I am contemplating – you will need to look half way down this post to see it. At least I know this layout works…vbg. And for those wondering I had decided on the layout then went to cruise blogs much, much later. It’s strange how life works at times.
