Hexagons are covering my world...

It seems this weekend's crafting has been completely absorbed by the hexagon shape.
Yesterday at craft group I worked on some Swan Lake hexie flowers.
Every little bit adds to the pile.

Then I thought it would be good to add to my stash of fussy cut hexies. I enjoy the process of making hexies a lot. There are four ready for when I want a change. The two nursery rhyme ones were made a little while ago. I couldn't resist the fabric from Spotlight. They are becoming a lovely collection...
Moving right along......
My Park Avenue hexies are patiently waiting for me to make the fillers to make the borders straight. I drew the design out first, if I can't see it I find it difficult to imagine it, if that makes sense. One step closer to finishing this one!
then there is this little new hexie project...
At the Essendon quilters I found the Holy grail of Hexagon love, a super hexagon purse- imagine angels singing and a beam of light shining down on it at the time.

 Melody found the pattern on line and let me know where it was from. She has already made a start on hers and I made a start on mine yesterday. There are 206 hexagons in the purse . I have them all cut and half of them are basted. Woo hoo! I so love this purse!!

psst.. do you think she is a little addicted to hexagons?

Hope I haven't bored you too much with my Hexie addiction...
cheers
Marina

ps have heard from my Friends with Benefits partner. Parcel arrived and well received! Will show pics soon.

They are right - a definite Hexagon addiction and sadly I don't think there is a cure!

No help really for that little addiction. Enjoy it while you can.

Is there such a thing as too many hexies? I don't think so!! Keep them coming... they are gorgeous. Love the hexie purse pattern can't believe you've got it prepped already. Can't wait to see yours finished.
