Encouraging Words of the Day:
As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength. ~ Psalm 138:8, NLT
"One-Flower Wednesday" today and you won't believe the flower I made.
"Big deal," you say? Actually, it's a small deal. I'm in a Hexie Bee and this month my hive mate asked for a 1/4-inch hexie. I could not believe it! It was actually harder to sew than the larger flowers because it's so hard to hang on to those little-bitty pieces. I took a photo to show you the comparison. The largest is a 1-inch hexie flower, the middle one is 1/2-inch, and on the right is the little 1/4-incher.
On another topic; I saw a pattern for a cute pincushion made of hexies. It seemed like a good idea so I prepared several hexies and started sewing them together. It looked easy enough so who even needs to read the instructions, right? Just sew the hexies togehter into a ball. I can do that. Wrong! I finally had to go find my son's soccer ball Would you believe that they are actually made of hexagons AND pentagons? Then I looked at the instructions again. Sure enough. Well, then I made some pentagons too and, surprise, surprise. It worked.
Notice the pink pentagon shape in the middle of the hexie flower.
