    Yep, I'm on a roll with hexagons. I'm obsessed, really I am. I've got 4 pencil cases full of hexies, and 6 of those craft containers with dividers full of basted hexagons.

    DH just found out that he is sent to Boston for 4 days and I'm going along with him and our DD. So I figure that the car drive up to Boston will be a great time to put them together.

    I have 600 of the 3/8" hexies basted and about half of them are in flowers - and those flowers are currently in the room past my DD's (and she's sleeping now!! a rare feat) so I'm not going any where near her room lest I disturb her.

    In case anyone wants to know, I'm being eco-friendly. All my hexagon templates are cut from cereal boxes and Smart Ones boxes.
