I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

                  Do you remember this reversible hexagon tabletopper from a few years ago?

Well, it turns out that I have a whole lot of extra prepped hexies from it...
Actually all the flower bits...

So, between those and my Monet's garden orts [;)))] I have begun making this little one:

and....since I threw my back out 3 days ago and cannot sit at my machine, I have been reading and sewing hexagons....:00000!!

I love that water-ey blue batik and the pansy fabrics ;(I seem to be on such a pansy kick lately) and have three started
--so my paths are strewn with flowers instead of the other way around...
just for a change--
we'll see how this develops...

The black centers are from Monet's garden;

so, ladies, I am "on the road in Hexagonia" once again, 
enjoying the trip...and
reading--- in between icing my back and moving s l o w l y....
through my days...

{today we are fogbound, gray and rainy....}

hugs to all,
Julierose, La Blageuse (From Hexagonia)
P.S.  linking up with BETH
