OK. This is not the best picture of my Hexies, but it is all I have until I take more later.

Hexie flowers

They are 1 inch across from point to point, smaller than a quarter. Don't ask how big the diamonds and the triangles are all I know is they are tiny.  I am using the "English Paper piecing" method.  I don't know how big it will end up being so I will keep adding flowers on it until I get bored. It is so much more easier to make the flowers than it is to add them to the rest of the group.  I plan on making each flower from different blues fabric with out duplicating a print.
I am not doing that with the yellow and the white path is any white on white scrap that I can find.  It is amazing how small the triangles are. Now I feel guilty of throwing away some of my small scraps. (not really, if you saw how much I still have.)

I was inspired By Hetty's flowers that she does. You should check out her blog. I love it.

New Life

Well I went out GeoCaching on the 4th and had a beautiful day.  I ended up finding 3 things that I would never had seen if I didn't go out.

Mount St. Helen
This is the view I saw from Sky line Road outside of Portland.
Banana Slug
This is some of the native wild life. (Don't lick him, your tongue will go numb, or so a coworker told me.)

Native tree
This was on a path I took looking for a Cache. Notice the hole in the base. Here is what was inside:

Mushroom Village
Couldn't you just picture small mystical beings living in there. Maybe they only come out when we are all away.

Now on to the next adventure and cache.

I have been quilting too. I started a Grandmother's flower garden using 1 inch hexies (across the points in the center) I will work on it until it tells me I am done. I am doing it by English Paper Piecing methods.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Well I have started something cool. Geocaching.  It is sort of like treasure hunting with exercising. It will help me get out of my house and use my brain.

I have started a new quilt (Like I need a new project). It is a "Swoon Quilt". Here is a flickr group that you can see the pattern.  I am doing something so out of my normal color choices. I am usually an old fashioned type of person, But I have chosen a more modern color pallet. Aqua, Greens and Grey.  My youngest daughter loves the Two blocks I have done.  

Maybe I will get some photos up to share.
