How To Make Hexagon Templates

Plastic index dividers for your notebook work great. 
Cheap and readily available.
If you have kids 
you most likely have a stash
 of these bad boys 
lurking in a closet

Make a Hexagon Pattern out of paper
or if you have a few 
laying around from your last 
paper piecing project
use those.

Grab a Sharpie

Trace Hexagon onto plastic

Punch a hole in the center of your plastic template
It makes removing so much easier.

My work mat is atrocious
 (hence "work mat")
and my $7.00
Amazon camera is about
to bite the dust.
But you get the idea of how to make hexagons
and that's really all that matters!

Memorial Day is tomorrow
Remember our fallen soldiers
Have a great day off!

Hand Embroidered Grocery Bag

 I love to hand embroider.
I found this great site that sells
Aunt Martha's products. 

 This is a new pattern pack called
Folksy Farm.
The colors remind me of a 
farm house kitchen.

It even comes with a color guide.
This is the second time I have
ordered from this company.
American Company!
Family Owned!

The Orphan

This morning 
on my way home from car pooling
 I found this orphan sitting 
on the side of the road.

It looked so sad and dejected
I knew it must be saved

I sent my man on a mission
to bring that orphan home
and he did
I am happy to say
it has been
 cleaned and polished
and is ready for a new life

What a beauty!
