What site is it that has the hexies that look like butterflies? If you don't mind me asking. That sounds really neat.

Okay - you lit the fire under my ... feet. I have several bags of the precut hexagons from Keepsake Quilting (which they're not selling any more) and several batik charm packs from Connecting Threads and Secret Sisters gifts that you've spurred me to start preparing for a few projects. I have 1930's and Civil War precut/die cut hexies that'll make some small but nice "somethings," but the batiks will require some more design thought.

I was thinking about buying the hexie papers, but instead purchased the hexagon pop-outs (the hexagon is stiff template material with a hole in the center - you baste the hexagons over the templates and use a chopstick like thing to pop out the template to use a zillion times.

I have a blog and really enjoy writing it. I talk about a lot of things in my life on it, but since most of my life is about quilting, so most of my blog is about quilting!

I love seeing where my visitors come from and LOVE it when they leave comments!

I say give it a try and have fun with it!
