Progress week three

This week hasn't been as much about progressing in size but making lots of hexies.

Note the plastic bowl I use for scraps.   Gotta love living with dogs. Sometimes.

Dormant muscles

OMG....I really over did it on Sunday.  Spring yard work that got a delayed start because of unseasonably cold weather.  I was able to plant bulbs, clean up several flower beds and do some transplanting.  And of course conclude with cutting the grass.  Boy am I suffering the last two days.   I hope it will all be worthwhile when in a few weeks I can sit on the porch and enjoy the view.   Please picture the chair without the tire.....This is what I tie the dog to when I'm working in the yard.  She doesn't easily run off and I can move it where I am working.  Win-win.

Tick tock

My daughter is graduating from high school in just a few weeks.  We met with a photographer sat morning to get some casual Sr pictures taken.  A fun morning but quite the reminder of how quickly time flies.  She has grown into a  wonderful young woman.  I love her.

Does it look bigger yet?  Nearly 11 hexies on each side.  About 8 more rows to go.  I try to pick it up every day, and I do manage to do this most days.   I have so many other things I should be doing....but hope to finish this in a few weeks.

Progress week two

I now have nine hexies to a side.  I have figured I need 16 or 18 on each side to reach the finished size.  When I was excited to be half way, my husband reminded me that considering the total number needed I am actually only about 1/3 of the way to being finished.  Drat.

Progress week one

This is one week's progress.  Seven hexies on each side.  This is going to take longer than I hoped.

Quiet night

Enjoying a rare quiet night with my hexies, glass of Adams County Wine and a documentary about Tim Tebow.

Lots of hexies

My plan is to make this hexie circle large enough to cover the table it is shown on. I plan to not have any duplicates.   I have given myself a deadline of June 1.  I'll be back with progress....I promise.
