Are paper pieced hexagons still the flavour of the month? They are in my house, and they seem to be the only thing I'm interested in stitching on at the moment ... so I'm going with it! I know I'll find the next big love of my life project soon ... or perhaps it will find me, who knows!

So here is where the latest section of my hexie project is at right now:

The green floral print in the centre of the block was not in my original plan, but when I saw it at Hettie's Patch, I knew it had to be part of this project, and I really love it. But I shouldn't really talk about a 'plan' as most of this project has just evolved - who knows where it will end up. I've been asked a few times about how big it's going to be ... and I guess it'll be as big as it is when I become tired of it. When I get a few more of the units together I'll share another picture.

I've also been doing a whole lot of spring cleaning at home too. Latest on my list of things to tackle at home has been the laundry - it was terrible for a while there, and is looking a whole lot better. My laundry room is an odd shape, so Marty and I have been trying to come up with ways to use the space better - so far we're still scratching our heads.

And I've also had something of an epiphany. My sewing room has become everyone's favourite dumping ground - it's looking really messy. It's next on my list of rooms to tackle ... and I have been thinking ... it's entirely likely that my missing sewing mojo is directly related to the state of the sewing room. It's not nice to be in there when I feel edgy about all the stuff laying around. Perhaps I need to get busy cleaning in there sooner rather than later?? I'll let you know if there's any progress in that department.

Lastly - I have not forgotten my promise to share the Anzac biscuit recipe that my family loves so much - I'd like to take a nice picture to accompany the recipe - as soon as that's done, I'll be on it. Promise!! Chatter soon :-)

The hexie project is coming along beautifully (and looking fabulous at the same time )

I was inspired to clean out some cupboards this week - I've yet to tackle the sewing room...

I think hexies will be the flavour of the month for a looong time, they are so portable aren't they.

I always find that a good clean-out/tidy up of the sewing room (plus any other rooms that need it) really helps to get the sewing mojo back, after all it's hard to concentrate on stitching when there are other things niggling away at you.

I love your hexie project! And I agree with your epiphany - sewing mojo is directly related to the state of one's sewing room!!

I LOVE them and have a couple of things in the WIP bins. I haven't made any in those fabrics though but I'm itching to do so. Must finish Mrs Billings first. VBG!

Spring cleaning must be in the air.....I agree with you about your sewing mojo ... I didn't feel like sewing in my room once I brought the new furniture till it went in there so go girl have a big clean out & maybe a furniture change around be like a new space ...& *cough cough* if you are throwing any fabric send it down the hill my way lol
